Being a mother is hard work, but it’s incredibly awarding and I can honestly say I’ve never been happier. The love you feel is overwhelming and when you hear your baby laugh or see them smile at you…it’s indescribable. When I’m in a bad mood, my son will reach out for me and I remember that I am the most important person in the world to him and that I have purpose.

Some days are harder than others (like today), but it’s so easy to forget that at the end of the day. My DS was crying almost all morning and later on he was all smiles and giggles and I forgot all about it! I

I love talking to DS, he’s 3. He says the funniest things and constantly entertains me, also I can tell how much better of a person I am for having him. Much more patient and motherhood has mellowed me for sure. I think having kids is challenging, but the pros far outweigh the cons. But when you having a child screaming their head off and rushing around like a blur, it can be difficult to dig up those warm happy thoughts lol 🙂 Also I love watching him discovering the things that I now take for granted because I’m used to them. Gives you a fresh outlook.

my baby has been teething and quite fussy for the last couple of days. I’ve night a couple of hour at night huts walking with her and comforting her to get her to sleep.

For that time, I leave any stress, worries, unfinished chores out of my head and just be with my baby. I try to relax as much as possible and just be there present with her – and this helps calm her down a lot.

Of course I hate seeing my baby uncomfortable and in pain, but being able to just have that time completely to ourselves, without any other cares and be that person that makes everything better for her and see her drift off into restful sleep is incredible.

I have 2 girls, one 19 months and one almsot 10 years old.  They are at vastly different stages, which is super fun.

My younger daughter Tabitha is really starting to talk.  She came up to me recently and said “Hi mommy, I’m Tabby!”.  As if she needed to introduce herself!  Cracked me up.

I love being able to introduce my kids to things for the first time- showing the baby bubbles, or teaching the older one how to cook.  Everything is new to them- it is fun to watch them discover the world!

My son was a difficult baby. started with a nicu stay, reflux, was and still is a bad sleeper. But when he just smiles at me anwithin his eyes too, it melts my heart and makes me forget that I haven’t slept longer than 4 hours in 11 months. Seriously, it’s his whole being that is just wonderful.

I have to agree with PP, it is hard work. but there’s seriously no better feeling than the love you have for your child. It’s amazing to watch them learn new things and to grow up. Dirty Delete was an awesome baby, hardly cried, slept through the night almost right away. She is now 19 months and I love everything about her and what she does! It’s so fun to watch her learn, hear her talk and just everything she does. Those times out weigh and stress there may be caused. In the end, everything you go through is well worth it!

There’s no love like baby love. Watching them grow & learn. Dd did everything early, miss her being a baby. 

 I’ve spent my morning cuddling with my 4yr old. Last night I was in a crappy mood, she drew me a picture of me, her & daddy. Then made me pretend dinner in her kitchen & brought me treats from her easter basket♥. So loving & compassionate. Shes hilarious,  she has comedic timing.  Nothing compares to that. Some days its easy, other days its hard. Yes her preschool is as much as our rent. But she’s worth it.

The best thing about having my baby was getting to know him.  I was already in love with him before he was born, and I was so happy to meet the little guy at last.  I was enthralled and in love with my baby, and very much in tune with him.  We still have a strong connection and he’s now 20.  🙂   His babyhood was a blissful time for me.

It depends on what part of their childhood you ask me this in.  My daughter is 15 and looking at her takes my breath away most of the time.  Really, she’s the most gorgeous thing I have ever seen.  My son’s smile is amazing when it comes out, which isn’t all the time.  He has aspergers and has a tenancy to be really reserved in showing his emotions.  unless a science discussion is happening.  Really, watching them discuss math, that would be a fun afternoon?

My baby girl is 4 months old and she is the best thing ever! She smiles and giggles so much, and the simplest things make her so happy: playing with her toes, looking at a clock, being read to.  I love seeing her discover new things, like learning that she can make shadows. Every time she sees me or Darling Husband when we come home from work or when she wakes up from a nap, she gives us huge smiles.  

She is definitely not an easy baby though!  She has reflux and cried nonstop for her first 3 months.  She’s very fussy and yells a lot (she seems to always be either really happy or really upset).  Most of the time I feel like I’m drugged because I’m so tired.  But I can honestly say that I love being her mom so much more than anything I’ve ever done in my life.  Even after she’s been crying and fussing for hours, my husband and I still look at each other every night and say… she is the best baby ever.

With my first child, it was the truely euphoric feeling of seeing him for the first time and the realisation that I was this beautiful boys mother. Best thing about my second childs birth was bringing him home for the first time, as I had stayed in hospital for a while with him. Best thing with my third child, was being able to breastfeed him so easily, as I was unable to do so with my first two.
