There are a lot of factors that contribute to us moms feeling like we’re going crazy. It’s being interrupted so often that we can never finish a complete thought. It’s the brain cells that die during each pregnancy. It’s the lack of sleep. But I think the biggest factor is the intense range of emotions we experience on a daily basis. Maybe it’s the hormones, maybe it’s how seriously we take this whole mom thing. Whatever it is, the emotions are a rollercoaster ride that leaves no one unscathed. Can you handle the ride?
