"Being a mom....brings out the best and worst in you."

A good read:

Being a Mom That Matters

Being a Mom That Matters (part 2)

excerpt:

"Train children how to live right, and when they are old, they will not change." (Prov. 22:6 NCV)....The original root word for "train" is the term for "the palate, the roof of the mouth, the gums." In the days of Solomon, a midwife would deliver the baby, dip her finger into the juice of crushed dates, reach into the mouth of the baby and massage the gums and palate to create a sense of taste and thirst. She would then give the child to the mother so the baby could nurse. Our job as mothers is to develop a thirst in our children for the right things. And that takes time.
