Why Raising Kids Is So Hard

I remember thinking to myself when my  life was just mine. I used to follow all my favorite TV shows.. watching movies was one of my craziest hobby and my day used not to start before work out…etc etc

Now life has completely changed. I don’t get any time to follow any TV show..Last movie I watched in theater was about two years ago and I hardly get half an hour ( which is 10 pm) at night…

You don’t really know what an experience is like, until you have it yourself.

I am the mother of three young boys and I often ask myself

Why Raising kids is so hard?

Behaviour

Certainly the obvious things like tantrums, stubbornness you have to deal with every single time. But you also get worried when they are away from your eyes for longer period of time.. Why parenting is so hard?

Children follow their own Schedule

You hate it when they find dust fascinating and want to play with it while you’re trying to get them to school. They don’t want to sleep or eat. They want to read the same book and watch the same movie over and over and over again. But you also get bored when they are not around..Why parenting is so hard?

Children often move so slowly

You always complain you don’t get any time for yourself. your life is only moving around your kids. They cannot even put on their shirts, their pants and their shoes  on their own when they’re perfectly capable of doing it themselves. But the thing is you want to do everything for them..

Children complete you

When you often wonder what your life would have looked without kids; But at the same time you feel your heart swell ten sizes at once, cry tears of gratitude and awe, and understand what they mean to you.. then you tell yourself
