I think all parents do it tough. I think some of us do it tougher. I don't know if it is the amount of kids that we have (four) or the fact that they are so close together (3 years and 8 months between the lot) or the fact that we have twins or 3 sons or lots of kids in a small house or lots of kids and a small business. Whatever it is, days like yesterday, when you are parenting from your bed, wishing like hell that all the kids would go and find another family to live with so you could just get some sleep... fortunately those days are few and far between.
Fortunately most days are punctuated with 'I love you" Mums, and cuddles, and smiles that would light up a room that are just for you. Most days you get to watch four little people grow and learn and explore all the delights this world has to offer. Most days, being a Mum is the best thing in the world. Most days.
