I do long for before & am glad to know it's normal & not feel like I'm a bad person for saying it out loud, ya know?

It is nice to be able to say it out loud.
During the first month after Lydia was born, I told DH that I felt like I'd finally gotten my dream job only to find out that I hated it. It made it even worse that when I went to the store (a colossal effort it seemed then) that all the mags showed Jamie Lynn Spears holding her baby with the headline "Being a mom is the best feeling in the world."
Huffman has two little girls, but gives a surprising answer when asked if motherhood is the best experience in her life.
"No, no, and I resent that question," Huffman says. "Because I think it puts women in an untenable position, because unless I say to you, 'Oh, Lesley, it's the best thing I've ever done with my whole life,' I'm considered a bad mother. And just when I said no you, you went back."
Does she think she is a good mother?
"I don't know if I'm a good mother," Huffman says.
"You're not there enough or you're not patient enough or …" Stahl says.
"I'm there enough. I don't know if I'm patient enough, though, you know, I don't know if I'm teaching them the right things," says Huffman.

Well, the mags are not gonna say "I slept for 2 hours last night, I am wearing a maxi pad the size of a diaper, and this is the 4th outfit I put on this morning because the first three are covered with projectile baby cheese, and all this WITH a full-time nanny" but you know that's what she was thinking anyway.

Only fellow moms (or parents) understand. The last thing you need is to vent and get, "well then why'd you have them?" or a "there there it can't be that bad".Independent of everything else the age of three almost broke me. ;-)
