I love being a mother, and I love it even more that I can stay at home with them everyday. I love many things about being a mother, it is hard to choose what I love the most. But if I had to choose, it would be watching them grow. They grow more and more each day, and it is amazing how time flies. But, I wouldn't change it for the world. So, what do you love about being a parent the most?

I love everything about being a mom. The good, the bad, the ugly, the stinky...... it is all a wonderful part of having them in our lives. I love all the laughs and watching him learn something new every single day. Being a mom is the greatest thing I have ever done in my life.

I've been fortunate enough to be a stay at home dad for the last nine years and I've got to see every moment of my kids life. I've loved watching them develop their own personalities, likes and dislikes. Sure, they have some similar personality traits to us, their parents, but each and every day they become their own little individuals. I have 2 of the brightest, most polite kids I've ever seen (I know every parent says that, but we are constantly complimnted on their behavior) and it's kinda cool to know that you've played a part in creating that...I absolutely adore my kids..they make my life complete

I love being a mom the most when it comes to night time. Usually, it's our "tickle time". We say goodnight to each other and I ask for my goodnight kiss. Then, we would be quiet for a few minutes. But he would be waiting for his "attack". We would be smiling like fools froms ear to ear and I would suddenly launch my "tickle attack"! He really loves this special time. It's a special bond between us as mother and child. It's like everytime we do this, it clears every bad thing that happened between us in the day. Sort of like a peace talk. And everytime we do our "tickle time", my heart just fills up with my love for him.

Hard to pinpoint what I love the most. Im lucky enough to be home with my kids and they do something different everday. (girls, 1 and 2). I think I would have to say the interaction. My 2 year old is a very good talker for her age and she can actually carry on a conversation. shes so funny! And the other one doesn't talk but she is such a sweetheart and loves to be around me and play with me. (She was a booby baby, so I'm her favorite) I love seeing her face and how happy she is when I react to her.

Cearly you only have a couple kids ir maybe less, and the do not have ADHd are any there things wrong with them. For some one like me with six kids, And four of them wioth ADHD. good times are hard to pick out. But for time to time I will let one of the kids stay up later, and i injoy that time. When life is not just one biug ceasy day its is injoyable. There are alot of speclle times I have with the kids but its always at night when thing are com that I think about them .
