Ah, being a mom. There’s no greater, more tiring, more nerve-racking or more rewarding a job. From the first moment you hold your newborn to them learning to ride a bike without training wheels, being a mom is filled with more good, bad, embarrassing and proud moments than you can count.
The following are 8 moments every mom out there knows and loves (and wishes would happen more often).
Being woken up with breakfast in bed.
Having a moment where your kids are actually getting along.
Getting all your young kids to nap at the same time (equaling some much-needed “mom” time).
When your kid randomly gives you a hug. [Source: whattoexpect.com]
Watching your husband teach your child a new skill. [Source: crosswalk.com]
Seeing pure joy in your kid’s face when they experience something for the first time.
When your child actually likes doing a chore. [Source: nedstevens.com]
Getting everyone out the door on time, in one piece and without screaming.
In the moment, you may not realize all the good you’re doing as a mom or all the joy your kids bring you. But it’s moments like these that make you as a mom not mind all those sleepless nights, dirty dinner hours or running to and from soccer practice three times a week.
