i love being a mom bc no matter what happens i will always have someone who thinks im funny and pretty! (and vice versa)

Jamie said...

I already have the book, but the thing I love most is the unconditional love you get from those babies...I could be crying, yelling, or throwing things across the room and they still say ... mommy...you're beautiful and I love you...

I love being the one person in their world that can make everything okay! When Bubby comes running to me yelling "Mommy!!!" it's the greatest feeling in the world.

i love being a mom because i never knew i could love someone or something so much! my baby is my heart and is such a blessing. i now know what unconditional love means. i would do anything for that little guy. he gets me through the days and i would be lost with out him!!

I have the perfect excuse to stop at Scoops at any given time to pig out on yummy ice cream - hey, my son is 3 and he loves Scoops:) I would never stop there otherwise;) ha ha;)

One reason I love being a mom is because I love getting big wet open mouthed kisses, ecspecially when I don't ask for one :)

I LOVE making new discoveries with Gabe and Ella. I get more excited then gabe does when he does, tries, or discovers something new. My heart skips a beat and I am beaming for the rest of the day. (for example, when ella rolled over the other night my dad called me crazy bc i was so excited!!!!)I think thats why I picked the profession of teaching too. New discoveries are the best!

I LOVE being a mom because they love me no matter what! I love them with all my heart! They are God's speacial gifts, that I couldn't do without. Everything they do is special to me:)

Oh man just one thing? The best thing for me being a mom is being their "cheerleader". I Love the expressions on their faces when they have accomplished something new and they've worked so hard for..those are the bests smiles followed by High-5's, hugs and kisses and a few tears of joy from their mother!

Abby said...

I love being a mom, because it's a huge challenge.. I love accomplishing and discovering new things with my little ones and always coming up with new things to do and teach them..... It's great seeing the reaction on their face when I tell them our day is going to be doing something NEW! Staying at home with them sometimes make me feel like i'm not learning new things, but I have discovered that I am learning something new from THEM everyday.... They are MY teacher!
(love to read all the posts)I also love being a mom for the reasons of everyone else too, so had to write something different.. :)

Being a mom is such a great gift! There are so many reason's I love being a mom that it is hard to just pick one. One thing I love about being a mom is on those Saturday morning's when you want to sleep in, but can feel your little sweethearts crawling in bed with you just to cuddle. It is the best feeling! So I love being a mom for all the cuddling and I love you's;) Kids are amazing!!

I really enjoyed this post Leah!

I love being a mom for the same reasons as above. There is one more reason I love being a mom is I couldn't IMAGINE my life without them. I find myself waking up in the middle of the night to watch them sleep and whisper "I love you, see you in the morning". I my is complete with my childern and Matt...I life would probably be alittle boring without them.
Thank you for making us take a time out of our day to remember why we love being mommies.

All of those reasons are sooo true!! I dreamed of being a mommy my whole life. It is so much better then I ever thought it would be. My little girl is the sunshine of my day! All the wonderful hugs and kisses I get throughout my day! I get to see her grow up and do new things every day. it is such an adventure! I love being a mommy!wouldnt have it any other way!

I love just being able to spend time with my daughter, she is now 7 and the older she gets the more I realize how fast our time passes and I just want to make the most of each day. Savor it and wrap it up and put into my box of memories because I know how quickly they grow up....and this makes me just love being a mom!
