Do you Like Being a Mom?


BE has asked me several times whether I like being a mom. And to be honest, sometimes I feel like shouting “no,” or just saying “it’s ok.” I want to always be honest with my kids, so sometimes I struggle with how to present the truth gently instead of harshly (because I can be very harsh). It’s not that I regret being a mom, but it is hard, and I want to present my kids with a complete picture of what it’s like to be parent. So, when BE asks me whether or not I like being a mom, I tell her, “sometimes”, “most of the time”, or “mostly.” Have you ever been asked this? If so, how do you handle it?
