Nadya Suleman -- a.k.a. Octomom -- is quickly discovering that it's not easy raising 14 kids on her own.

The 36-year-old hosted a 21-minute chat on UStream Sunday night, where Suleman shared some of her biggest parenting woes.

"Is this easy? God, no! It's not easy at all! I'm not going to be trying to don any facade and say, 'Oh yeah, life is a piece of cake.' It's not. It's a piece of poop!" Suleman said. "Eight pieces of poop, all day long. But the rewards outweigh anything negative."

The California native -- who began in-vitro fertilization treatments when she was just 21-years-old -- also calls Noah, Maliyah, Isaiah, Nariyah, Jonah, Josiah, Jeremiah and Makai her "little miracles."

"They reached all their developmental milestones early -- earlier than all my others," Suleman gushed. "They were walking at about 1, and that's early for premature infants."

Suleman -- who has six other children, all conceived through IVF -- added that her 3-year-old octuplets are "so advanced" compared to most toddlers.

"Most of them can count to 20 or longer. I'm trying my best, in every chance I get, to do little flashcards and to teach them," Suleman said. "It's all going very well."
