Motherhood is not always as sweet as a Hallmark card.

From babyhood to the terrible 2s to the drama of the adolescence and the joys and trials of adulthood, the experiences of raising children evoke a roller coaster of emotions for moms.

What have your experiences been like? We're asking moms to share their reflections on the realities of motherhood -- as fulfilling, satisfying or challenging as they are -- in short essays. The PG will choose several to be published on Mother's Day, May 12, in the Sunday Magazine print edition and on

Please send essays of between 250 to 300 words by email to (include Mother's Day in the subject line) or by letter to Virginia Linn, Features Department, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 34 Blvd. of the Allies, Pittsburgh PA 15222. Include your name, address (with city neighborhood or suburban community) and daytime telephone number. Writers' names and towns/neighborhoods (not full addresses) will appear with published essays.

Deadline for submission is Monday, May 6.
