I just read this article called "All joy and no fun... why parents hate parenting." and I gotta tell you, it makes me a little sad. It's just one more thing people today can complain about. Don't get me wrong. There are days when I wish to call a babysitter and get the hell out of my house and take a break from being "MOM". But, I certainly wouldn't say it has made me unhappy. Quite the contrary in fact.
You know what? Your life is what you make of it. You can let having children change your life for the better, or for the worse. I choose the better. It is the hardest thing you will EVER do. And there are days it will test you more than you ever thought possible. But being a mom has brought me more joy than anything else in my entire life.
