Its fun and the best thing you will ever do as a person. Ummmm I am sorry to pop the bubble and I am only speaking from my personal experience. Having children is one of the crappiest time of my current life. I have two children (6yr girl and 3yr boy) and man they are challenging, cute, horrible little monsters alot of the time. I am always having to break up fights, deal with tantrums, change the most horrible nappies and at then end of the day get met with nothing. No thanks mum for loving me and for changing my nappies and for feeding me and housing me and providing me with clothing blah blah blah.
Don’t get me wrong sometimes the are wonderful. Like watching their faces when the tackle a difficult task and can complete it with no help or like when they do come up for a cuddle for no reason other then they love you.
Having children was certainly not what i thought it was nor what people told me it would be. (but i guess i wouldnt have it any other way)

  • My son is experiencing exactly this at the moment. He has a very challenging baby that doesn’t sleep well and he’s adamant there won’t be a second


  • I’m sure you could never imagine life without them now. Children are hard aren’t they! They’re worth it in the end.


  • Being a mum was the best time if my life. I wasn’t brilliant at it but I loved it. I sometimes wish I had more babies. I’ll have to wait for the grandchildren I suppose


  • Hang in there! It gets easier, or at least different as they get older. I miss mine being little but also remember how stressed I was.
