I'm JUST NOW discovering this thread...been busy. But ahh, just what the doctor ordered after the week from hell.
Here's my charitable contribution:
If you're overwhelmed because you have one child - WAKE UP. Having three more kids doesn't lighten your load, Einstein.
I do not feel sorry for women who want pity for being a mother. Your choice. Your deal.
If you suck at being a mother, do us all a favor and DON'T go for round two, three or four. This isn't rocket science.
