Those images of the blissful mother easily breastfeeding a peaceful baby with an almost ethereal glow are a setup because the reality is much more complicated, painful and messy than that.
Since having kids, I feel like I am constantly bombarded with the news and I am finding it to be almost unwatchable.
Day in and day out I am constantly seeing people ripping parents to shreds on social media over some parenting moment they deemed unacceptable.
Anyone that has ever had kids knows toddlers can be completely unreasonable and absolutely impossible.
What is it about motherhood that makes us think we are suddenly capable of doing everything for everyone???
