People Had Really Strong Feelings About Chrissy Teigen’s Tweet About Toddlers

Motherhood is hard, yo.

I have a tween and a teenager and know all too well that there is one truth that all parents can agree on and it’s this: parenting doesn’t get any easier; it just gets different.

Every age and stage of being a mother comes with challenges. The newborn phase is insane because of the lack of sleep, the hormones still surging through a new mother’s body, and the postpartum body/anxiety/depression phase while trying to learn how to breastfeed/soothe/change diapers.

Once you get the hang of that, a new challenge pops up – like your baby starts teething. Crawling, walking, running. Separation anxiety. Introducing solid foods. Temper tantrums.

Each and every age and stage of raising a child is both amazing and frustrating all at the same time.

The terrible twos were quite challenging… but they sort of blended into the terrible threes and into the freaking-terrible fours! Kids are learning to assert their independence, and test their boundaries with you. It’s a trying time for sure; but it’s also a sweet time of your child’s life as well… because once they start school full-time, the time will inevitably feel like it’s flying by.
