  • 44 percent of moms would rather be 15 pounds thinner than add 15 points to their child’s IQ.

I miss sleeping in until 9 or 10, being able to go out spontaneously, and my pre-marriage body (it started to go downhill from there haha). Sometimes I wish my toddler would just sit still for a diaper change. Occasionally, I break down while cooking a less than perfect dinner for company. Otherwise, i'm a pretty easy going parent and feel that motherhood is TOTALLY worth it!
