  • Not being financially stable at this time, and watching them go through hard times, we're in it together.

  • Watching their hearts get broken, knowing that you can't solve their problems when they become adults but not wanting them to HAVE problems at the same time & watching them leave the nest because even though part of you is happy about it the other part of you wants your LO back. Oh, and how fast they grow up is also hard. If you blink, they grow up.

  • Letting them be independent little buggers LOL. Not hovering over their every movement and the like.

  • The hardest part for me is the lack of sleep, lol, newborn at home. And just not being there with my daughter at school to make sure everything goes smoothly for her in school and she doesnt have to go through childhood drama.

  • Doing anything w/out a kid on my hip. I have a colic baby. He is 1 now, but I think he will be dependant on me till hes like, 3. Sometimes I just wish he would take to other people.

  • The constant worry. Every little thing in the world makes you think "What if that was my child?" Lots of concern about their health, happiness, and future. And not being able to protect them from everything.
