Roller-coaster Parenting: The Best and Worst Things about being a Mom

It is without doubt that being a mom is the best thing ever. How could we not love those cute little feet, warm hugs in the morning or playing at the park for hours on end? Ok, we know that there will be many sleepless nights involved and stress levels will rise and fall as quickly as that homemade bread you are trying to master, but being a mom is just great isn’t it?

We have spoken to a few of our favorite moms to find out what they love and hate when it comes to parenting.

 

Rosie, mom to Ella 3 and Mason 1

The thing I love most about parenting is…

It is amazing sharing an absolute unconditional love with my two favorite people. I know that my husband and I share a special bond, but the love for my kids is on a whole new level. I would do anything for them in a blink of an eye as I know how much they depend on me.

The thing I hate about parenting is…

It breaks my heart to see my little ones upset. Whether they hurt themselves by falling off their bikes or are hurt by comments from their friends at school, I get such a horrible feeling in my stomach. I wish I could take their pain away at all times.

 

Denise, mom to Jack 4

The thing I love most about parenting is…

Seeing my little man’s smile every day makes me the luckiest person in the world. I love to see my boy happy, knowing that I am doing an okay job!

The thing I hate about parenting is…

I got to admit that I could do with a whole lot more sleep, I have forgotten what it is like to sleep past 7 am, haha.

 

Sarah, mom to Macy 4 and Jackson 2

The thing I love most about parenting is…

Quite simply, everything. I have the best job in the world.

The thing I hate about parenting is…

The one thing that does annoy me a little is people trying to tell me how to parent. “Don’t do this,” “My child would not do that,” “ You need to try this,” are comments I here all of the time. I just try and remember that they are my children and I am the one who looks after them, but sometimes it does irritate me.

 

Catherine, mom to Daniel 10, Morgan 6 and Daisy 4

The thing I love most about parenting is…

When we are all sit together during  the weekend, cuddled up on the sofa watching a movie and forgetting about the rest of the world for the evening. We have so many giggles together, I wouldn’t change it for the world.
The thing I hate about parenting is…

It can get a little tiring being the mediator when the kids start bickering. I try not to intervene too much and leave them to it, but sometimes you just have to step in and keep the peace.

 

Linda, mom to Keira 7

The thing I love most about parenting is…

All of the kisses and cuddles. Coming home to a warm hug from my little girl makes all of the worries of the day disappear

The thing I hate about parenting is…

I hate having to leave her so much when I have to work. It is ok when she is at school, but weekends and school holidays means I miss her so much.

 

Charley, mom to Tate 3 and Joseph 1

The thing I love most about parenting is…

My kids amaze me how quickly they grow and learn. Seeing them crawl, walk and talk for the first time just blows me away and makes me so proud of them

The thing I hate about parenting is…

Having two children close in age means that at times I feel like I am not paying either of them enough attention. I see how Joseph already gets less of my time than when I had Tate.

 

Gina, mom to Luke 14, Tom 12 and Laura 9

The thing I love most about parenting is…

As my children grow, my love for them grows more and more. I am so proud at everything that they achieve and seeing them reach their goals gives me such a buzz.

The thing I hate about parenting is…

I don’t hate it, but I would like more time with my  husband sometimes. I guess we will have plenty of alone time when they have flown the nest, so I try not to complain too much.

 

Julie, mom to Charlie and James 4

The thing I love most about parenting is…

Seeing my twin boys grow into great friends.

The thing I hate about parenting is…

It is SO tiring. Tiring but good!

 

Bea, mom to Livie 6 and Amelie 2

The thing I love most about parenting is…

Hearing my girls laugh and giggle together makes it all worthwhile.
The thing I hate about parenting is…

Having to say no. I know that we have to sometimes, but it sucks seeing them disappointed.

 

Leann, mom to Jordan 12 and Kayley 10

The thing I love most about parenting is…

Seeing my girls take care of one another and seeing them look out for their friends makes me so proud.

The thing I hate about parenting is…

The thing that I have found most difficult is dealing with outside influences, such as friends that I don’t think are right for them or Tv shows that encourage back-chat! It is hard to get the right balance between looking out for them and letting them do their own thing.

 

We have to say that we agree with all of these statements. So, what are your best and worst things about being a mom? Leave a comment and share with us.
