The list for the best things about having a child is much too long to list....:)

The worst thing about having a child is your freedom to do things is no longer yours. There is alot of planning that goes into the things that used to be so simple.

But again...it is all worth it! I am pregnant with my 4th and no it will not be easy but we are so looking forward to bringing more happiness into our home!

Good luck to you!

best:
knowing that this little person is yours, all yours, you made him and you get to watch him grow into an awesome person.

All the firsts, laughing, crawling, walking etc...
seeing them get so much joy out of all the things you take for granuted
having a lasting feeling of being complete as a women and family

Having a really bad day and just hearing that little belly laugh and seeing the goofey grin makes it all soooo much better

this list could go on and on but pretty much to sum it all up having a baby makes you reazlize how much you need to cherish the little things and how fast time really does go by it's all good


The worst:
SLEEP!!!
knowing that the life you knew and loved is over for a while and by the time you get it back you'll no longer want it :cry:

The late night feeding the up every 2-4 hours
The poopy diapers.........ooooooh do they smell!!
Did I mention SLEEP!???
Colic
washing bottles
washing sippy cups
SLEEP!!!

DS wasn't planned but was the best accident we ever made I wouldn't trade him for anything even though I did spend a good week or two crying because my old life was gone......I blame that on PPD :)
I wouldn't trade being a mama for anything it's all wonderful the good the bad and the ulgy!!

The best:
Looking at your child knowing that you helped create that child.
Watching them grow up.
Being there to see there milestones.
Knowing you are loved.
The Worst
Loss of sleep.

It's really hard to say what is the best and worst. Just looking at your child can give you this wonderful unimaginable feeling. That same look can hurt you too. Being a mother is the best feeling and the worst feeling all at the same time. You love this little creature so much that it hurts. You want to give him everything but you realize that you can't.

You get use to sleepless nights. You rarely get a moment alone, but the second you do you don't know what to do with yourself. Your first "night out" you end up just thinking about him. These things become the center of your universe.

the best things are the children and the rush of euphoria they give you every time they look at you and smile and the worst thing is the guilt! from the moment you fall pregnant you feel guilty about everything, what you drank,ate,took before you found out,and what sort of life you can give them.Plus the fact that nothing you ever do will be good enough!!!
