My Favorite Things
By Lisa Bullard
Sometimes I like to think about some of my favorite things about being a mom. We know it can be a hard job, and for me, it’s important to think sometimes about the positive parts. Here are a few of the things I’ve thought about lately:
Watching my baby’s personality develop. I absolutely love learning about this little person! She is different than anyone else that I know!
Seeing my baby play with her Grandmas. My mom and mother-in-law make the two best Grandmas I could ever imagine. Ember is so very lucky in that way. My heart swells as I watch Ember and her Grandmas interact and enjoy each other’s company.
Watching my baby’s desire to learn and grow. We just came back from vacation, but I realized, there is no vacation when you’re a baby! She didn’t stop checking things off her to-do list – she learned some new sign language and words, worked on climbing up and down stairs, practiced eating with a spoon, and on and on. I am amazed and inspired by her drive to learn and improve!
The cute factor. I feel like I'm always surrounded by cuteness. Chubby cheeks. Fat rolls in her thighs. A four tooth grin. Baby clothes! I love the tiny clothes, the little shoes, the hats, the miniature socks! So much frickin' cuteness every day!
What are some of your favorite things? You can share at a NBNP Mother's Circle. You could also share on the Café Mama Facebook group. (Note: you may need to friend Donna Bruschi, first, to be added to the group)
One of my favorite things is how much my kids LOVE me. Motherhood was the first time in my life where somebody loved me unabashedly and without fear. I learned how to be that way from them.
