IS IT HARD BEING A MOM?

Being a mom is by far the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. I wouldnt change it for anything. No matter how bad a day you are having, when your child/children come up to you and give you the biggest hug and tell you are the greatest and they love you super lots forever and ever, melts your heart and makes everything bad that happened go away, or it does for me. And that makes being a mom so amazing and worth it. I would never give up being a mother to my 3 girls for anything in the world.

i think being a mother is one of the hardest jobs you will every have!! it has some great times but when your child is sick or hurt and there is nothing you can do about it.. it makes it hard.. but i think being a mother is the great gift any woman could have.. why do you ask this?? are you ok?? stressing?

It is. But thats what makes it so rewarding. Because its in those exhausting moments when you come home from work and need to put six loads of laundry on and start dinner when your daughter all of a sudden decideds you're the funniest thing since the banana peel. Its the kind of laugh they laugh with their whole body. And its contagious.
Its in those moments that your hard work and sleepless nights seem like a small price to pay for their happiness. Its in those moments that you wouldn't want to have it any other way.

It does have some hard times but when you see them smile and how happy they are and all the things they learn how to do and how excited they get when they accomplish it, it makes all those hard times and struggles totally worth it!! I wouldn't change anything for the world. She is my world :)

Of course it's hard. But nothing in life worth anything comes easy. If you weigh it out the positive things outweigh the negative. When things get bad take a second and think what the last thing your kid did that made you smile and the bad melts away, slowly but it does :)

Absolutely!!!! It is hard, it is frustrating, but more importantly it is SO rewarding!!! I am 22 and I have 3 kids, ages 4,2,and 9 months. It has been one of the toughest things I have faced so far. But there are so many high points and I love them all!! There isn't anything that I would not do for them or nothing I wouldn't give up for them. There are so many sacrafices you make as a mom, but would do it again in a heartbeat if given the chance! You are going to have days where you think ... what did I get myself into or I bit off more than I can chew! but those days are so few and far between all the days that you will go to bed thinking that you have the best kids in the world that it won't even matter. I can't even tell you when the last time I had that feeling!

Oh yes but it is the best job in the world and I have never in all of my 8.5 years of being a mom though I should have waited or only had 1 or none. I have three kids they are the best and show me such great love and they try me in the cutest ways.

I don't know if "hard" is the right word. Hard compared to what, you know? Honestly it's an adventure - everything in life is "hard", this is no exception, but it's a fun type of "hard" - if you like to be challenged, that's when it's great.

I have always been told that "raising kids is one of the hardest things you will ever do in your entire life" and there are some times when that is true. But there are also so many good times and little sweet moments that make it all worth it. Kids are wonderful, and scary, and frustrating, and fun and I absolutely love being a mother of two great kids. I wouldn't trade them for anything in the world and couldn't even imagine what my life would be like without them.....really really boring I think.
