Trying to be positive and thankful today! My favorite thing about being a mom is the feeling I get when I look at my daughter and swell up with pride, thinking, "What an absolutely beautiful child we have created!" We are so blessed. I love kissing her hair and it smells like shampoo. I love that every age seems to get better!! And I love it that she stills goes to bed at 7:30pm every night so mommy & daddy can have some quiet time!
Re: What is your favorite thing about being a Mom?
I go ALL out for holidays for him. Any Christmas or Halloween event/pastime we can do I'll do it. Last year I wrapped up a Christmas or winter themed book for the 12 last days before Christmas. I let him "open" one per night and read him the story. I ended with "The Night before Christmas" on Christmas Eve.
I want to create this rosy colored cookie cutter childhood for him. So anything I can do that will give him that sense I try to do.
Anyway, everything. I love everything. I also have a great sleeper! He doesn't get up til 8 am!

Ditto!! My favorite thing is also looking at my daughter and swelling with pride! I am such a SAP at times, lol. I will tear up over everything she does (as long as she isn't being rotten, lol). I love watching her try and achieve new things and I love seeing her contagious smile that reaches ear to ear!!
TTC #2 since 1/2012
This is such a hard question because I really love everything about being a mom. I think the sense of pride is probably the best part. I know all parents are biased but I have a darn stinkin cute kid, and he's funny and smart to boot. When I walk into day care and he runs to me, all excited that I'm there, I scoop him up and think how lucky I am that I get to take him home with me.
And the hugs are pretty nice too.
