  • They make you grow Grey hair from stress. They tire you, but they give you life. So no I don't think so.

  • I feel older than my years and often feel a lot older than my peers with children. My one child has autism and those stresses can make me feel so much older. But I also feel like I have learned so much. I love my children and would not change a day of it for anything.

  • No, husbands do (though the argument could be made that they are children also)!!!
