I say this all the time. Having been pregnant 4 times and having two kids, I tell people HONESTLY that having kids is NOT all women make it out to be. While all women don’t have bodies that change after child birth (mines did not), I can honestly say that I gave the majority of my life sacrificing to kids and my spouse. Chasing kids to football games, basketball games, and track meets. Spending all my money to feed my children (and their friends), never being able to really eat what I want because “the kids” won’t like that. I can’t be too sexy because “my kids” will think I’m a whore.
