I know parents who give up everything.. They are miserable but feel some great accomplishment..
I know parents who deny themselves nothing.. and often it hurts their children..
So where in there between the two are you? and Where and what is asking too much?

I would say I'm right in the middle. My son gets everything that he NEEDS, not everything that he wants. Since I've become a mom I've made alot of changes in my life so that I could be a good mother, but I can't say I've necessarily given up alot. Sure I've missed out on certain things - vacations and nites out, being able to do whatever I wanted at the spur of the moment. But I still do many of the things were important to me- go out with friends, play sports, go to school. You don't have to give up everything to live a well balanced life.
