  • That was beautifully said! Motherhood for me has been both a pleasure and very stressful! I have enjoyed both of my boys very much but we have had too much sickness in this family but it has been one learning experience after another. I have to say that both my boys have changed my life forever they made me laugh,cry,angry,feel love, I do enjoy being a mom and I would not change it for the world!

  • Motherhood for me has been life changing. I thought I wanted the big family but find one child is more than enough for me! It has also been joyful, challenging, surprises, taught me to be more thoughtful, more bold, an advocate not only for myself but for my family, and most of all it has taught me that I really should not have back talked my parents!!!!! My son is so much like me as a kid. He is stubborn, mouthy, and independent!!!! I love him so much though.

  • Motherhood for me has been a beautiful, fun, scary, crazy roller coaster ride. Its been amazing, & its been crappy!! its been easy & its been hard. Its everything I feared it would be & so much more then I could have dreamed of. Its made me a much better person. Its made me worry 100% more then I normally would have. Its made me think before I leap, so to speak... its done a wonderful thing for me.

    Motherhood is a blessing & its a curse. Its fun & its heartbreaking. I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world... My son might be smart, & handsome, stubborn & independent, mouthy & loving, a know it all, but guess what hes mine & I love him & I would give anything to keep him safe & happy.
