Mothering Monday: Top Ten Things About Being a Mom

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

Even though parenting can be frustrating and tiring at times, most of us wouldn’t trade the joys for anything. Here are some of my favorite things about being a mom. 

1. You have someone who is always ready and willing to cuddle.

2. If you can bake cookies, you’re a genius – a master chef!

3. You get to put playdates and lunches out on your agenda.

4. Hearing your child say for the first time, “I love you mommy.” 

5. You get to be in charge, sort of;)

6. Watching your kids sleep peacefully.  Ahhh. Enjoy the silence.

7. Being able to see ordinary things through a child’s eyes.

8. Learning to slow down and enjoy the moment.

9. Unconditional love. Your baby doesn’t care if you sing out of key or even forgot to brush your teeth.

10. Being able to see your hard work played out in their lives. 

11. Baby toes, soft cheeks, pudgy feet and bellies that poke out and just beg to be tickled.

12. Getting to re-read all your favorite books you loved as a kid.

13. When your 9 year old knows how to operate the Senseo. And serves you coffee.

Oops. That was thirteen. :)

    Great list Carrie. I agree with your list and to add my own thought I love being a mom for those moments when my son comes up to me (for no reason), wraps his arms around me and says I love you.

    What a wonderful list! Can I add one: You have somone who thinks your are the most beautiful person in the world, regardsless on if you brushed your hair and put on make up.

    Well, at least until your baby has grown up to a 10 year old or so – than it doesn’t matter how much make up you put on… :-D

Got something to say?
