How do you like being a mom?

This evening we had a guest over for dinner and at some point during the evening, he asked me “How do you like being a mom?” That’s such a heavy question isn’t it? And funnily enough it’s one that I’ve been asked a few times before.

It took me a few seconds to gather my thoughts but this was my response.

I love being a mom. For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to be a mom and so for me it’s a dream come true. But, it’s hard work. Being a mom is hard work. You have this blank canvas and it’s your job to do what you can do to bring out the best in this individual so it’s also a huge responsibility and immense pressure. You are in charge of raising and creating who this child becomes. You want to give your child everything you can and expose them to all the right things. And that’s a tough job but at the end of the day you just have to be the best parent you can be and hope that reflects in them in a few years time. No matter how tough things can sometimes be, that smile in the morning, the cuddles, the cute things they say and do, make up for it all. So in answer to the question, I love being a mom!

If someone had to ask you, what do you love about being a mom, what would your answer be?
