I just had my first baby. She is 9 mos. Along with how much hard work mommy-hood is (DH and I both work full-time on top of it) I am still pretty shocked at how little moms complain or fess up about the difficulty of raising children. It's 2009! I thought it would be more acceptable to be honest about how stressful, difficult, tiring, & mentally straining the whole experience of being a mother can be. Of course, we love our children, I love my child, but why can't we be more honest about the hardships? I have friends with kids who (I can tell this, I know them) put on this happy face when I know they are having a hard time with it all. It is just so stressful at times. Why aren't we more honest with each other? Are we trying to just be super-moms? Did we learn this from our own mothers? This interests me a lot. I wonder if other women notice this.
