This story is pretty sad... I mean, does any mom really prefer changing diapers to her own pursuits? Probably not. But my kids are such a source of joy for me. I would have a less fulfilling life without Andrew spouting off random science facts, Ethan drawing monsters from the Rampage video game nonstop, and Emma doing Barbie movie impersonations (see Elliott's blog for more on that!)
I admit that being a mom is tough, and frustrating, but the good times definitely outway the bad. I have witnessed some great moments when I take my kids to their activities, help out at their schools, and just hang out with them!
