All girls dream of being a mother one day. In our heads, we have the perfect family, the perfect spouse, and the perfect house — but when we grow up, we realize that nothing is ever quite that easy.

In this episode of Truth Bomb Mom, Kristina Kuzmic tackles the shocking realities of growing up and becoming a mom. Before she had kids, Kristina had a vision in her head of raising “little angels” — but that’s far from the reality.

“In my pre-children fantasy, I popped out a bunch of children who were great sleepers,” says Kristina. “And they never had diarrhea shooting out of the back of their diaper — into their hair!”

Reality almost never lives up to the fantasies in our head, and after having three kids, Kristina knows that “motherhood is nuts.”

Though many moms might blame themselves for the tantrums their kids throw and the messes their kids make, the truth is that it’s not their fault. After all, all moms are doing the best they can, and raising a child is no easy feat!

“I love my actual children more than I ever imagined I could love anyone, but parenting is hard,” says Kristina. “No one is actually completely equipped for this gig.”
