Well I think the hardest part is not having as much freedom. But other than that I think i have learned to adapt and adjust with the changes.

I think that the hardest part of being a young mother is trying to get my life where I want it to be for my son. I am 25 and have a great career but I had waited until I was say 30 then I would already have bought a house, the student loans would be paid off that kind of thing. I am not a materialistic person at all but I want the best for him. I would wear Goodwill clothes all day but I just want him to have everything so I am working all day and getting my Master's degree at night. Without my wonderful fiancee and family I would not be able to make it though, so in the place I am blessed. All of the long nights are worth it every time that I see his beautiful face. he is my world and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

There are not enough hours in a day. I am constantly tired. =) I wouldn't change any of it honestly. Even on the days I almost lose my marbles. It's not just the kids that cause this though, it's just life as an adult. I am beginning to understand though why my mom used to drink so much coffee.. I'm doing the same thing. LOL!

the thing i find the hardest is not having a lot of friends that have children. The ones that don't have children don't understand that i cant just drop everything to go out with them, i am a mum now and my priorities have changed. My former best friend i don't even see anymore because she always puts my daughter down by saying how loud and annoying she i (when she is just being a typical 16month old.) and this just upset me. Regardless of all of this i wouldn't change a thing in the world my daughter has changed my life for the better and i couldn't love being a mummy more than i do.

well, for me it's not really being able to go and hang out like I used to. Before I had my daughter I would hang out with my friends and my cousin. I was always on the go. Now, not so much. I noticed that my priority's changed once I had Kiera. I kinda miss doing all the stuff I used to, but my daughter is 18 months old now and I notice I have more and more fun with her every day then I used to when going out.

I think as a mother in general its having to be on call 24.7 you never truely get a break from being a mom. Even when your kids arent with you you have to be ready to jump into mommy-mode should the need arise, ie..your kid busts thier head open at school or starts puking when with the babysitter and your out to dinner.
