When Fairy Tales are Tall Tales

I always thought I'd be a mom, but never actually pictured myself mothering. Maybe that's why I was shocked at how hard things were at first. Or maybe it's because no one ever shares the unglamorous and often horrid details of parenthood.  
No, it's all fairy tales and pixie dust when you're "expecting" (and when you're in the hospital and the professionals are there to help care for your newborn).
