Jilly, my daughter is the greatest blessing of my life. I can't imagine life without her. I love her more than my own life. HOWEVER, as you stated, along with children comes a massive amount of stress, especially when there is more than one. Some people seem to handle them well, but even though my daughter was an excellent child--very compliant and well-behaved--I sometimes felt like my head would explode. I live in fear that she'll write a book on growing up with a nutty bipolar mom! LOL! I did my best, and we were and are still close. But back to your point--yes, dealing with everything involved in having children is very stressful. Not for the faint of heart!
