Being a mom with one, two, three or even four children is no easy task to undertake. As they grow you need to rely on the older ones to watch out for the younger ones, because frankly there's not enough of you to go around.
Krechelle Carter knows the struggle of having young children.
But no matter how many diapers she changes, or messes she cleans up, that isn't the biggest challenge she faces.
"What I really struggle with are people's unwanted opinions," she says.
Carter has 6 children under the age of 6-years-old, and yes, they are all from the same man.
It wasn't always easy growing their family.
The first time they tried for a baby, it took 18-months to conceive, and once they became pregnant they were over the moon with excitement!
After that, the next 4 pregnancies happened before they even started trying, with the 4th one happening before she even gotten her first period and while she still breastfeeding.
Her husband was bathing 4 kids, she walked into the bathroom and poked him with the positive pregnancy test.
With a laugh, her husband Dave's response?
"Your the strongest woman I know.Your are a f***ing motherhood rockstar. Our doctor said it was fine. And look at me with the bathing and the bottles and the late nights, babe if anyone's got this; it's us."
"Five was good. Six is Sensational," she concludes.
The 27-year-old mom, struggles going shopping, going out for dinner and keeping the house clean- but doesn't everybody?
Her main frustrations are with people's opinions about her family.
She has tried to ignore the comments, not let it get to her and smile and keep walking, but she has now found a better way to deal with people's unwanted messages to her.

Carter and her husband, Dave, are standing waiting for the store to open with 2 carts, containing 2 kids each and then the last 2 running around in circles around the family.
That's when a smug lady in her 40's comes over to the busy family.
"They are not all yours are they?!?!" she says with a smug disapproving look.
"Yep, sure are; born and bred from my uterus; surprisingly enough my pelvic floor is still fantastic - isn't it babe" (I look at Dave with a wink).
But it doesn't end there.
"Do they all have the same father???!"
"Well we haven't had them genetically tested but we're fairly certain the first four are this guy's"(gestures to Dave).
The questions continue.
"Do you own a TV?"
"Actually we own three; however who would pass up mind blowing sex for TV - are you nuts?"
But there's more.
"Is this man your husband?"
"No actually my husband's at home, he deserves a rest - this is my lover- Fernando.''
Yup. That actually happened.
"You're not having anymore are you?"
"I mean my husband has had a vasectomy if that's what your asking but Fernando, my lover, has not so I guess we're just throwing it to the wind."
It's not the first time someone has passed judgement on how many children a family should have. This mom was shamed for having 3 children while out shopping at the store.
These stories have to end, because it's no one's business how many children a couple has as long as they are loved and cared for.
Good for this mama to speak up!
