Nobody prepares or can explain the rollercoaster ride that motherhood brings. It entails constant challenges, joyous heartfelt moments, and many sleepless nights. For many mothers, life is never the same as they try to adapt to the changing scene. You kind of wonder what you did with all your spare time pre-baby.
