  • I hope so, that's pretty much how I feel every day!

  • That is the way I feel most of the time, being a mom is the hardest, yet most rewarding thing any woman can do. I would not trade it for the world! :)

  • YES! The phrase most heard out of my mouth the last few day was "They drive me nuts at times, but I wouldn't trade them for the world." You do not have to be Supermom to be a super mom, just keep that in mind :0)

  • Absolutely! I wondered the same thing once but I now know that we all feel that way sometimes.
