I am the mother of 4 children, age 6 and under. And I love it.
Don't get me wrong. If you have read my blog for any length of time you know it's not easy. My house is constantly a disaster. I change upwards of 8 diapers a day. I get spit up on. I am bitten. Balls are thrown at my face. But I tell you what: I am terrified for my children to grow up.
I don't do well with teenagers. I don't relate well to them. I am terrified of being called into Young Women's. My 6 year old already rolls her eyes at me and I can't stand it. I have no idea what I'm supposed to do when I have 2 teenage girls rolling their eyes at me every 10 seconds.
And so I'm terrified. I tell my children to stop growing all the time and they think I'm kidding. They think it's so funny. But I'm not kidding. I'm completely serious. I will take a poopy diaper over PMS and a bad attitude any day.
