Do you know what it feels like for a mom?

Catherine Connors, one of my blogging idols, as you all know, just wrote this post on being a mom. It's a tough balance. You love it and hate it at the same time, according to her. It's a complicated, conflicting feeling to be the mother of young children who are demanding and yet loving, as all young children are. I recommend reading this, if, like me, you're thinking about having a baby (not like, right now, but in like 6 or 7 years, maybe), or if you've ever wondered what your primary care-giver(s) went through raising you. This post on mothering is a profound read precisely because it's so honest; Mothering sucks for Connors, except for the times when it's awesome. Yeah, that's a complicated opinion, but at least it's not full of shit like that stupid mom show on Slice.
