Being a Mom..

To me, being a Mom means..
*cleaning up spit up and changing dirty diapers w/out even thinking twice about how nasty it is.
*getting up in the middle of the night to a crying child and while holding and comforting them all the frustration disappears.
*watching Alvin and the Chipmunks over and over again, (and actually liking it!!)
*laundry, laundry, and more laundry.
*dishes, dishes, and more dishes.
*getting to bed late and getting up early
*cherishing every moment with my family
*helping w/ homework
*being understanding
*playing with my kids when I know there is cleaning to do; there will always be time to clean; your kids are only young once.
*watching my kids make mistakes and learn from them
*giving up my food if my kids are still hungry
*CONSTANTLY picking up toys around the house!
*putting my kids first
*reading bedtime stories
*listening to my daughter read
*getting upset with them and having their smile melt it all away
*watching them learn and grow
*wishing there were 2 of me; one to spend time w/ my family and one to do all the housework
*having good days and bad days

I could go on and on but I think you get the idea.

What does it mean to you to be a Mom?

First of all...

Being a mom to me means all the things you said. To watch and help a child grow to show them love and to put them above all else thats being a mom to me! It's the greatest gift in this world to be a mom!
