  • realizing that you can't always keep your child from pain & suffering. They will eventually experience it at some point in their life.

    Watching them grow so fast is painful too....

  • safety issues. I tell people the truth who are considering having children. You've never known fear until you're responsible for someone else's life other than your own. Children will bring your worst fears to reality

  • for me, it's learning to let go. Raising him was fairly easy, letting him go is killing me.

  • The constant worrying about your children. I worry about their health, their safety, their futures. It's almost enough to drive you insane, until you accept that some things are out of your hands, and you can only do the best you can do.

  • So far (since he's only 10 months) for me it's been GUILT! Guilt when I have to go to work and he cries because he wants me to stay!
