Ask any mom and they’ll say that while there are a lot of really great things that come with motherhood, there are also a lot of negative things you have to deal with. So, what are the good and bad of being a mom?

  • 69% of women say they love being a mom.
  • 48% say being a mom has resulted in them feeling more carefree and not caring what other people think.
  • 43% say they are entertained by their children daily.
  • 39% say being a mom brings them the most joy and happiness.
  • 80% actually say being a mom isn’t as hard as they thought it would be.
  • 43% say they now feel they have a purpose in life.
  • 36% have never felt more loved as they have since becoming a mom.

But it’s not all perfect.

  • Motherhood has left plenty of women in tears at some point.
  • 44% admit to having a “secret cry” in the car.
  • 37% have and one in the shower.
  • And some have even let the waterworks fly while shopping for groceries.
