I Love Being a Mommy

My greatest joy is being a mommy. I love this privilege, even when they are grown. My oldest baby (now 27) had surgery on her hand earlier this week. I had the privilege of spending most of the day today helping her out. I got to clean and play with the grandbaby and do laundry. It was fun and fulfilling. The thing I loved most is I got to pull my daughter's hair up in a pony tail. I know that seems weird or trivial, but I have not got to fix her hair since she was in her early teens. It brought back memories. I wish her a speedy recovery, but I also cherish the moments of caring for her.

It had always been my dream to be a mother and when I got pregnant it was the happiest of my life. However, I know I'm not a really great mom as my son grew up with me working and the nanny taking care of him most of the time. But I love him with all my heart.
He probably knows you worked hard to take care of him. And making sure he has a good caregiver is part of being a mother. Believe it or not, I know some mothers who just turn their kids loose and let them wander wherever. Or they let them stay with people who are not good for them. There is a lot that goes into being a good mother. It is great if you can stay home, but every mother can not. Kids are smart; they know when they are truly loved whether mom works outside the home or not.
