I love every aspect of being a mom! I love it when my kids cry and I am here for them,I love being here for every accomplishment and disapointment they may have, I love crying on the first day of kinder...lol...I love watching them walk for the first time, I love it when they come up to me with a joke that doesn't make sense...lol.....I love how they expect me to know every answer to their questions....lol..I love how they grow to appreciate us and no matter what mistakes we have made in the past,they will never come to judge us.....although I am a single mom who struggles to make ends meet everyday, I know that without my children I wouldn't be the person I am today.

I guess the best part of a mum is when ur child hugs u and u feel that they really need u... Every little action they do that makes u feel so appreciated and loved... I guess when u feel down on a day and ur children hug u, u will feel that everything will be fine and alright... Though im not a mum yet... But the way i see my niece... I already felt very blessed,,,

The best part of being a mom for me is to be loved unconditionally by my children and for the wholehearted trust that they have on me. I love the way they say I love you and I love that they long for me to be with them. No matter how close they are with my parents and sister, they always want their Mamay with them. I also love the fulfillment to see them grow and be the person that they can be. But the best part really is that I see the best part of myself, my strenght, my hopes and immortality in them.

I think the best part of being a mum is what you get in return from your children... the little hugs, the joy of hearing their laughter and happiness, the little daisy head they pick and hand to you with such pride, (or sometimes it's a dandelion) lol. I love it when they get dirty, and look at you with sullen face and eyes looking up at you, as if to say, "You're not going to scold me, are you, Mummy?". I just love everything about motherhood because I adore kids and their cute, thoughtful little ways of showing love and happiness. Brightest Blessings.

the best thing about it for me is when one of my babies comes to me out of nowhere and say mommmy i love you there isnt anything better then to hear those words flow form your childs mouth and know that it is the truth. my kids drive me nuts and i get frustrated and and just well words cant explain but if i just take a moment and look into anyone of their eyes i calm down and i know that it is worth it every crazzy stress filed moment.

Everything. i never knew i could love someone so much. it's a lot of work but rewarding. my baby girl is only 8 months old that's why im looking at the new things that she learn everyday and watching her grow into her own person. i love everything about my baby girl... i think the happiness and fulfillment that my baby brings me is the best part of being a parent.

I think the best part of being a mom is all the little things. Like babies smiling and laughing or rolling around with you on the floor. I love when my older kids say I'm the best mom in the world,and how they love me so much. I love my sons artwork and little projects that he brings home from school. It just makes me melt. I dont wnt them to grown up because they lose their innocence so fast.

I love being a Mom, I love helping my kids find solutions to their problems. I love seeing my kids succeed in things. I love seeing new things in my kids, 1st day of school, 1st words, 1st steps, 1st teeth coming in and losing 1st teeth. I have a 5 yr old and a 9 month old.

I have only been a mother for 11 months now but the best things for me are, like you said hearing my baby cry and I get to comfort her. She is also at the stage where I am the favorite cause I am mommy so that is great too. Being able to teach her things, like numbers and colors and animals. It is tough cause it's like me and Mike and going to shape how she turns out as an adult. but it is thrilling at the same time. I guess soon enough I will know the other things you mentioned.

The best part of being a MOM for me is watching the joy my kids have in the things they do. It is so rewarding to see my kids happy. Especially when they will come up to me for no reason and say "Mommy, I love you!" It makes my heart melt. Having kids is the best gift anyone could ever get. Even through the rough times with temper tantrums and having to disipline them. In the end it is well worth it.

I love everything about being a mom. My kids jokes like you said and all thier funny little things. My favorite thing is when a baby like 3 months old starts laughing. It is the best thing in the world. I just love it their first laugh don't compare to anything. I too used to be a single mom until I met my husband and I struggled too. I hope you keep up the good work.

I love it that even now that they are in their 30's, my children still call me and ask for advice, and they call me when they have good news about anything in their lives. I love it that they still include me in their life.

I love every aspect of being a mom. I love the sloppy kisses and snuggles at night. I love that at only 14 months old he looks up to me and depends on me. I often look at him in amazement. I can't believe I created such a beautiful little boy. I'm blessed and being a mom is HANDS DOWN the best job ever. I wouldn't trade it for the world.
