I mean there are plethora of reasons that having kids is great. But other than the obvious (and sort of boring) reasons, these are my favourites
Today is World Maternal Mental Health Day.
The world expects you to be happy all the time. You have a baby! You have what some people have wanted for a lifetime. You should be grateful. There is no room for sadness when there’s babies in your life.
But there is.
I love my kids so much, but sometimes they can just be a bit overwhelming. You spend so much time with them, serving their every need, entertaining them, cuddling them, teaching them, showing them right from wrong. It is full on, full time.
Having your own children makes you realise how truly awful you were to your own parents.

The whole pregnancy made me feel like a whale with a water allergy.
