When I became a mom at the ripe age of seventeen, I had no clue what I was in for. I just knew from the moment they laid that baby boy in my arms, my life was changed forever. People, even family will still throw their remarks about how I messed up my life becoming a teen mom, but I know he wasn’t a mistake he made me a better person. I am going to tell you my t 10 reasons being a mom is awesome.
1. Their little faces light up as soon as they see you!
When I’m having a bad day and I go pick my kids up it’s like the world melts away. Hearing that screech come across the playground “mommmmmyyy!!!” That’s the good stuff right there.
2. Watching them meet goals/milestones.
Watching them walk for the first time, lose a tooth, ride a bike and here’s the best one being polite without being told!
3. Watching their personality grow.
Its funny how they go from looking like little old wrinkly men at birth and then turn into respectable, funny, good lookin children!
4. To always be needed.
It doesn’t matter what it is or how old you are you always need your mama!
5. Kids say the darnedest things.
We all have a story where we wanted to secretly bust out laughing and crawl under a rock at the same time. Kids are great for that.
6. To be responsible for another human.
To know that I am raising a part of the future. To know that I am helping shape the future. Hoping they will be the change they want to see in the world.
7. To have help with chores!
I really hate unloading the dishwasher, they love it. It’s a win,win.
8. To have someone to stay strong for.
When life gets tough and I want to give up, I remember who is watching me.
9. To watch them overcome.
As parents we want to fix everything, but the best part is watching them overcome all by themselves.
10. Someone will always love me, no matter the time of day, or what I do I will always be their mama.
There is no greater gift than the love of your kids and being their parent.
So love them babies extra tight, call your mom or dad tell them you love them.
But don’t screech “mommy!” That might think something’s wrong.
