What is it that you love about your kids? I know for me its the smiles my 8 month old daughter gives me when she first sees me in the morning. The way she loves to cuddle with me. I love it when she says momma. I love everything about my little angel!Feel free to do what you love about your kids and the things they do to get on your nerves!

My one son, out of 4, has a problem with touching and being touched, just being affectionate is an issue because of possible Asperger's, so I hold it in my heart everytime that he comes and gives me a heartfelt hug and tells me that he loves me. He has been a handful growing up and he is only 15 and has been through so much so far in his life. I have one son that the others call Mama's boy because he likes to be around me and tries to make me happy when I am upset. He is only 12 and my baby. My now 18 year old, when he comes over to visit me and when we have time to goto lunch together and get caught up with each other. And last, my 17 year old loves me so much and just does little things to make me happy also. He is now learning how to drive and that makes me happy because when he is driving he talks about his future and how he wants to work for NASCAR fixing the cars.

Thanks. It does take a lot out of me. I have 4 boys and two are bipolar and as I said one of them also has Asperger's, they (docs) think. We get through. My house is not the most orderly around, but there are so many other things that are more important to deal with. When they grow up leave home, my house will be in more order. But I don't see my one son living on his own. Lots of prayer as gotten me through. You also have a very special little one there and enjoy every minute that you have. Keep them special times locked in your heart forever.

I have two beautiful daughters, one is 6 years old and the other only 7 weeks and i get so much joy out of the pair of them, i different ways. Firstly my eldest is so grown up and so keen to help, especially now she is a big sister! We found her the other day changing her sisters nappy (a wet one may i add, doesnt do dirty ones LOL), she had just took it upon herself to do it as it was heavy she said. Neither me or my hubby had taught her, yet she always watches, so we were so proud of her and it was very funny how she handled her wriggling sister and how she had her tongue hanging out whilst concerntrating!! Our 7 week old, well shes at the stage of giving little smiles and yesterday whilst i had her sat with me she was giving me to most georgous ones that much it made me cry. ( hormonnal still i think LOL) I was never really maternal until i got to 23 and my best friend had a baby, well when i held her for the first time that was me all cooey and something snapped, was strange, but a great feeling, so much i went straight home and imformed my hubby i wanted a child, now!!! Yes he didnt complain lol I just love everything about my girls and am so very proud to be their mummy. xx

i don't have child yet so i would have to respond to this pertaining to my nephew if that's ok... well basically my wife and i were the surrogate parents of my nephew since his dad (my brother) is in rehab.but the thing i love most about my nephew was the times when he tugs my hand ... and take me to his room to play with him. everytime he sees me reading a book or im on the computer -- he would just grab my hand and pull me to his room to play. i think it's very cute. he's our shock absorber!

The thing I love hte most about my kids is their hearts. As much as they want to kill each other at times, they can also be the most loving kids I've ever seen. My oldest son (who is 14) is my biggest defender. If I don't have a happy face on, he will hound me until I tell him what's wrong and he does everything he csn to make me feel better, which amazes me because I don't see a lot of teens around these days who show genuine concern. My daughter (who is 11) is the same way. It is so touching and cute when she puts on a serious face, puts her arm around me and says "Mom, what's wrong? And don't you tell me nothin cause I know there's something. Talk to me". My other son is only 16 months old, but he is very loving as well. He is always throwing his arms around my neck giving me big hugs. If I say "Thank you! Mama loves hugs!" he squeezes tighter. It's these actions that make me feel so loved and make me love them even more.

It's weird how different children raised in the same environment can be so different. I have 3 biological children (that I mentioned in my previous post) nad 4 step-children. My husband and I don't pick favorites and we treat all of the kids the same. Maybe it's because they're not mine (or they have a lot of influence from their mom) but my step-children are the complete opposite of my own. It's not just with me, either. They are very selfish and self-absorbed. If it doesn't directly affect them, they don't care. One recent example is I had that bad flu that was going around. All I did was cough and could barely breathe. All my step kids were worried about was whether I was still making dinner or not (I did). My husband caught it as well nd my step-daughter (his biological child) said "Well, I hope you're still taking me to PetSmart to get food for my Geckos". Amazing.

The picture of your daughter is adorable. I have a four year old son and I would have to say one of the things that he does to make me happy is first thing in the morning. He seems like he is happy to see me and greets me with a big smile. It's those things that really mean something. Sometimes he whines for no apparent reason. That can be unnerving but other than that he is a good kid.

I love so much about my kids I would not even know where to begin. My 11 year old is total boy so no more cuddles but I love how he still lets me tuck him in bed. My 7 year old girl has the biggest smile that can make any one feel better. My 15 month old cuddles, laughter, stubborn, lovable. Those are just some of the things I love about my kids.
