  • Awh ladies you are the best....great to know I'm not the only one who loves a shower alone or knows that life has since changed! This weekend I showered alone and I said to my DH you know how nice it is to shower WHEN you want!!!! People warn you of all these changes but isn't it funny how you never really know of them until your actually experiencing them!! Life is sue me if I'm ok with saying "One and done!!" LOL...

  • My toughest at the moment is stopping my toddler from biting/hitting/scratching/pinching. I never dealt with this with my first daughter, so it's a new thing for me to conquer. She doesn't like crying, if her big sister is crying about something, she'll go up to her and hit her. Ugh! Sassy! She took off after one kid bawling in Sam's Club with her hand cocked back ready to do something and that's one thing I do NOT want to happen. One day at a time though.

  • Oh boy more joys for me to look forward to!! LOL....I know toddlers are just as much fun as newborns in their own little way!

  • I had and have many challenges as a mom...i have 4 boys ages 5,4,2 1/2 and 8months. My biggest challenge was when my 2nd son was born and we found out he had Down Syndrome....i knew it was going to be a road of many challenges. He is four now and it has been a blessing to have him, but also a challenge. We went through him having heart surgery last January and that was rough. I know i have many more challenges to face having 4, but im looking foreward to most of them.

  • I was totally over whelmed by the amount of love I had for my new born. Nothing prepared me for this. Still growing at 19 years.
