Raising kids is tough. Sometimes it surprises me that my parents had six kids! Their younger kids were closer in age and the more I think about it, it seems like they must have had some difficult times. A gaggle of toddlers that are all fighting for their attention and love at the same time. I think that I am good with just one. 🙂
Also as a side note, I have been thinking lately how very different it is to have your own child than be a teacher of young children which I did for years. A classroom of two-year-olds can be more manageable than the one who you made with your own body and can trigger your emotions in a way no other child can. I love being a parent more and more every day but it is hard work! I am becoming a stronger and more loving person through the teachings of my little one.
