Top Ten Reasons I Love Being Mama

on April 28, 2007

Tracy at Rambling Thoughts of the Neverending Mind made her list of ten reasons being a mother is worth it, and asked if anyone else would like to share so here is my list.

  1. I love how my little Sweet Pea will tell me a million times a day how much she loves me.
  2. Every morning I go in to get my Chunky Monkey he always has a smile on his face and gives me a kiss.
  3. I love watching my two play and laugh and giggle over the silliest things.
  4. Anytime Sweet Pea sees that I’m sad she’ll come over and give me the biggest hug and kiss and say that I’m the best Mama in the world.
  5. Anytime Chunky Monkey has a boo-boo he’ll come straight to me arms out saying Mama, and lets me hold him close.
  6.  Whenever David and I come home from a date Sweet Pea runs up and hugs me telling me how much she missed me while I was gone and that she’s so glad that I’m back.
  7. Every night before she goes to sleep I get a ton of hugs and kisses, and then I tell her to dream with the angels, and she’ll tell me “don’t let the night time bugs bite.”
  8. My little Chunky Monkey will give me raspberries out of the blue and the more I laugh the more he laughs and continues doing it-slobber and all.
  9. Still being able to hold my little girl in my arms and telling her how much I love her.
  10. When my little guy wakes up in the middle of the night I lay on the couch with him and he just nuzzles his face in my neck with his hand on my face.

I thank God everyday that he gave two beautiful and sweet precious children.  I love them more than words can express, and I know how much they love me.  I would never turn the clock back to the time before I had children because they are the best thing that has ever happened in my life-right next to my hubby David.

  1. I love this post! I may just have to steal this idea! I will let you know if I do it!

    Those are some great reasons! As much as mine drive me crazy, I know I am SO lucky and blessed to have them!

    I love your list! I’m so glad that I’ve inspired other mom’s to stop and take a look at the good things that come with being a mother. That list just came out of the blue for me. I was sitting at my desk, searching my head for something to write about and saw my kids sitting there in one of their sweeter moments and it came to me!
    Isn’t it nice to be able to focus on the good?

    Again Tracy thank you for the inspiration on the top ten list. You’re right it’s great when we can focus on the good, the bad just doesn’t seem that bad when we look at the good.
