Hi to all mothers. As a mother, i consider myself to commit more to my family and become the best mom that i can be. I challenge myself everyday that i become more loving, caring and joyful mom. New Year! new trials and new resolutions. I'll play with my little girl more, do fun activities with her, spend quality time, and many positive things that i can surely consider joyful ways of being a mother. How about you moms out there? What are some things you do and considering this time to feel happy & joyful?

Hi money4moms, just talking or thinking about children is joyful for any mom. My most fulfilling moment was when my son was born. He is now two years old and a bundle of immense joy to me and my husband. Although I had to give up my well-paying job in order to care for him, I do not regret my decision even one bit. Just watching him grow every day, watching him try to lean to talk, hear his beautiful laughter is something that I would never trade for anything else in the world, not even if a million dollars were offered to me.

Thanks for sharing mom kalyani. Same here, i never thought before that i'll enjoy being a full time mom to my daughter especially when i needed to resign from my job. A tough decision i made 2 years ago but its all worth it giving up my work to give my best care to my daughter. I also do not regret it. I'm happy for you. Just give your best all everyday and i know we both know the feeling of being one of the joyful moms in this world. Happy mylotting.

I am not a mother, and I don't have a child of mine own yet. But I think that every mother love their own children to their deepest heart. I love my mom too, she wants me to be happy, and I want her to be happy the same way. She work so hard to cook and clean up the house, and my father and I have a comfortable home to live. She already done so much, and I can't ever repay her for it.

As a mother i enjoy spending bed time with my son. He's already 6 and he spends most of the day in school and when he arrives we would study and do his homework. So the fun time for us would be bed time. We would tell stories and he would read me a book and we laugh and play before bed time. During the weekends, i couldn't be with him most of the time because it's the day that i work hard. But when i'm free we usually go swimming and play games together.

Hi, of course to see one's kids grow up little by little makes a mom joyful. As a mother of 8 year old boy, i still can remember clearly the situation he just born. He is so small then, and as time went on, he learned how to crawl, stand up, then walk. After he went to school, i began to feel happy when seeing progress he made in study. Well,there are too many things to mention when it related to my son.It is really a blessing to be a mother. But being a mother is also a tough job. And it need knowledge too. In one word, it is a pleasant and also a hard job to be a good mother. Best wishes to you and your daughter.

Hi mom aprilsong. I definitely agree with you, being a mom requires a lot of patience. It is our duties to be a good and loving parent to our children. It is a forever responsibility that we will do as mothers. But is it also a big blessing that no one can ever replace. Happy mylotting. Take care of your son.

I TOTALLY MISS MY MOM!!! She used to do all those things before I left home because I needed to work somewhere. I'm gonna visit her a week from now. You are such a great mother, money4moms. Any daughter or son would be so lucky to have you. :)
