Why Do You Love Being a Mom?

A Mother's Day reminder of the joys of motherhood

Mother's Day is this Sunday, just in case you were too busy being a Mother to notice. It got me thinking about how sometimes I'm so busy, tired, and stressed that I don't stop to appreciate why being a Mom is worth it. Some days it's easier to focus on the negatives and I ask myself why did I go through all of the pain, nausea, sleepless nights, insecurity, and the extra 10 pounds that won’t go away? So, I wrote a post on Why Being a Mom is Worth It that I wanted to share. But more importantly, I'd love to hear from you.

Why Do You Love Being a Mom? Please comment below and let's create a great list of why Motherhood is amazing. The reminder is a nice gift to ourselves.

I want to wish everyone a Happy Mother’s Day. I hope your day is special – filled with “Chocolate Cake Moments” where you are smiling, indulged, and enjoying Mommyhood. For some Mother’s Day fun, read my post “Is a Mother’s Day Card Really a Performance Review?” Finally, here are some quotes to make you smile.

“Making the decision to have a child – it’s momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” – Elizabeth Stone

“There has never been a day when I have not been proud of you, I said to my son, though some days I’m louder about other stuff so it’s easy to miss that.” – Brian Andreas

“Babies are such a nice way to start people.” – Don Herald


“It’s easy to complain about children. But when we want to express our joy, our love, the words elude us. The feelings are almost so sacred they defy speech.” – Joan McIntosh

“If evolution really works, how come Mothers still only have two hands?” – Ed Dussault

“It will be gone before you know it. The fingerprints on the wall appear higher and higher. Then suddenly they disappear.” – Dorothy Evslin

Happy Mother’s Day!

Being a mother has been the most wonderful gift i have ever received. My children make me a better person, I love seeing their perspective on things and their laughs are infectious. There is no greater resposibility & I take mine seriously. We Laugh alot, We Love always and We live life together. Enjoy every moment (even the hard ones) it goes by way to quick. Happy Mother's Day to everyone enjoy your BLESSING!

Motherhood...what is not to love? They are babies and we worry like never before. They grow to toddlers and we love how much we can teach them. They start grade school and before you know it they are teaching us. Being a mom is THE BEST, a day doesn't go by that I don't thank the man upstairs for this beautiful gift.

I love everything about my kids, Mya and Tig, including my daughter's sense of compassion and my son's huge African laugh. I also love experiencing life through their eyes all over again. Such a privilege to be their mom!
