At the moment there's a trend going around facebook that nominates people to post 3 pictures that sums up motherhood and why they are proud to be parents. I think it's this sort of thing that gets to people who don't love every aspect of parenthood, it just appears to highlight that everyone else does or should. For me it's those Facebook posts from friends with captions such as "oh this little cutie is the best thing that's happened to me" or " I can't believe this Angel is a year old, it's gone so fast but I've loved every second" blah blah. It makes me honestly believe I'm an awful parent for not feeling that well. This thread makes me realise those people are not the necessarily the majority, the rest of us just don't post about how crap we feel some days.
