  • Well I never gave it much thought before I had kids, but I had my kids young. I would say it is awesome and life changing. Sometimes as a mom I feel overwhelmed and you find yourself wondering if your a good parent. Your kids become you life (literally) and your whole day revolves around them. At times it can be bittersweet but to see such innocent love is amazing.

  • I always joked about kids not coming with a manual. I really wish, now, that they did come with a manual.
