1. Well said. With one kid I WAS super mom. I rocked that out. Then the second one came along and I lost my mind. Nothing ever got done and I literally called my husband one day to tell him that our second child was being mean to me. Fortunately I got a do-over kid ten years later and am once again super mom. Of course, that's because the two older kids were old enough to hold the baby so I could go to the bathroom or shower and play with him as he got older. Life is never what you think it is going to be. But in the end, yes, we love them to bits and that's enough.

  2. There is a saying- Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs in my field, since the payment is pure love 🙂
    I think that Mother born just after her first child born before she was just a woman.

  3. (While I think that moms of one are real moms too…)

    I could TOTALLY relate to this! My first baby was a breeze! He loved people, was on a consistent schedule early, slept through the night, was never sick, was content to play alone…

    Baby number two, however, is kicking my butt! He refused to take a bottle, he wakes up 2-3 times a night just bc he misses me, he won't go to anyone else, he fusses all day. My house is a wreck.

    This post fits in so perfectly with my blog's tagline: "I used to have a superhero cape… til I lost it in the laundry…" Thanks for sharing!
