  • Sometimes it's harder and sometimes it's just what I thought it would be like. It's never easier though.

  • Being a parent is pretty much what I expected it to be, but it's also given be a more intense love than I ever dreamed of!! What's harder than I ever thought is dealing with my son's mentally unstable father =(

  • I'm a single mother so I think it's harder since I'm soley responsible for everything in my sons life. It's hard, I would never say it was easy but not as hard as I thought it would be.

  • It was hard in the beginning when my kids were 2-4 years old because they are developing their personalities and are testing their boundaries. It was stressful but SSOOOO WORTH IT! They will never be that young again. And the cutesy stuff they used to do has become a milestone.

  • easier than i thought, being an adult and completely on your own, with no support or family is harder than anything...my son is the only reason i keep going. being a mommie is the best thing that has ever happen to me.

    I agree and I never thought BF was going to be so hard at first.

  • sometimes it's been way harder and others, like now when they are all playing together quietly, it is easier. For all of the chaos, exhaustion, endless chauffering, it is completely worth it. I just hope I survive the teen years.
