On the joy of being a mum

The joys of motherhood:

  • when you finally drop off to sleep, only to be woken up by your little one having a nightmare.(aha!)
  • when they say the nicest things.
  • when they see the world so much more clearly than adults.
  • when they draw, paint, create and offer you their master piece.
  • when they first smile at you.
  • when you hear their babble.
  • when you see them persevering and finally succeed.
  • when they give you a cuddle.
  • when they snuggle up with you.
  • when they look at you in awe. I know, you’re going to tell me it won’t last.
  • when they try to cheer you up if you’re a little down in the dumps or not feeling well.
  • when they look radiant whatever the reason might be.
  • when their little faces lighten up.

And all these little things that fill you with joy and warm you up inside.
