    Giving time to my son is the most challenging for me. I am very busy with my work and sometimes able to forget myself and my child. I need to work hard to give the best for him but the connection is not that strong. That is what I am working so hard for now.

    Going places on a whim, especially international travel, is hard. We have friends who do it all the time with their toddler and infant. We don't. It's probably gonna depend on your energy levels.  
    Spontaneity in general will be hard. You'll have little companions at the store, on dates, party, while running, always. They'll be awfully cute, but they will also be grabby, distracted, tired, hungry, etc. Can you be patient with developing little people attached to your hip for several years?
    You'll never sleep in again (for a few years). If you're farmers, though, you're probably used to that.

    Additionally, it is very heart-breaking when your child wants some of your time to play with him and you cannot give it to satisfy him. It's hard because you know that you cannot buy back the time that passed.
  • I truly agree with you. When your work demands your time and attention, so does your children its exhausting!
