Parenting has gotten some bad press lately, such as its negative impact on your health, so I was glad to see this article in Time that talks about the benefits of having children:

I have wanted to be a mother for as long as I could remember. It is definitely one of the hardest jobs in the world, IMO, but so worth it.

If I had to choose one thing that motherhood has brought to my life, I would say that it has taught me to slow down and enjoy the moment. Watching her explore the world around her is the most amazing thing ever. Checking emails on my phone can wait - my DD even swats my iPhone out of my hand if she sees me pick it up while I'm playing on the floor with her, lol!
