What I Love about Mommy'ing

Since Mother's Day is this weekend, I have been thinking a lot about all the amazing little things that motherhood brings. Here is a brief list of the things I love the most..

  1. Reading bedtime stories
  2. Eskimo kisses
  3. Baby lotion (the most perfect smell on Earth)
  4. Holding hands
  5. Chocolate milk
  6. Baby breath
  7. Footed jammies
  8. Breastfeeding
  9. Watching him sleep
  10. Cuddles
  11. Gummy grins
  12. Firsts
  13. Hearing "Mommy!" with the utmost excitement
  14. Playing like I'm a kid again
  15. Seeing my husband be a dad
  16. Delirious kid laughs
  17. Baby blankets
  18. Watching the light bulb go off in his head while he's trying to figure something out
  19. The zoo
  20. Bathtime
  21. Hearing him say "I love you"
  22. Singing to him and rocking him at bedtime
  23. Finding the beauty in the little things again
  24. Giving in to an all encompassing, bigger-than-life love
  25. Realizing that no matter how much I thought I would love being a mom, I really had no idea how deep that love would run
Hope you have a wonderful weekend and a very happy Mother's Day!
