“We worked hard for everything that we have, and I think it's always important to remind our kids of that because they definitely are at a much better starting point than we were when we were younger.”

As parents, your job is never-ending. It can be mentally challenging for any mom, no matter how great you are, no matter how awesome your kids are.
