Motherhood is one of the most rewarding things in life. But let's be honest - It is also one of the hardest and most thankless. If you can't find the humor in it, you may be doing it wrong.

Becoming a mom means surrendering all of your "me" time. You can pretty well bet on never going to the bathroom alone ever again!

I can guarantee you that tasks that should take no time at all - like eating a sandwich or putting on socks & shoes - will take forever and a day once you have kids.

Trying to keep the house clean is a completely worthless task. No matter how many times you pick up the living room or clean the bathroom, there will always be another mess as soon as you turn back around.

Oh! And once they really start to build their own identity as a person, you will never be right ever again! There will be plenty of times where your best bet is to just walk away, count to ten, and remember that you do in fact love them crazy, and a bottle of wine is cheaper than bail money!

Of course, all kidding aside, being a mom is an amazing gift. I count myself lucky even when I'm interrupted in the bathroom, when the last bottle of water is mysteriously missing from the fridge, that box of Poptart is the cabinet is empty, and even when I get that last minute notice that "tomorrow is a big event at school, and I need a new outfit." I wouldn't change a thing!
