Raising our kids is both challenging and incredibly enriching.
I don’t think any of us could have predicted what it would truly be like to be a parent. But now that we’re in it, what do you really love about it?
How has your life changed in a positive way? What do you experience as a parent that you couldn’t ever experience without having children of your own?
There are many wondering things! Today, take a moment to reflect on what you love about being a parent.

I love the connectedness my children and I have, I love how we can just lay together and be some comfortable in each other's company.

parentwellbeing that is sooo true! My son is 22 months and his language development is snowballing. Every day a new word/s pop out of his mouth and each time my breath is just taken away. And my daughter amazes me with what she's absorbed every single day

I love seeing the world through my girls eyes. They remind me that the small things do matter and are worth celebrating.

I love watching my son learn to communicate & discover his abilities every day. No words yet but his body language & facial expressions etc melt my heart. Everyday is new & amazing to them

Gosh so many things I lov about being a mom, but I guess if I had to choose one, it would be that my children are mine and that I had some part and privilege to bring them into this world and giv them a life. That they belong to me and that I can so proudly call them my own but that they are also their own unique individuals and here to enrich my life & give it a greater sense of purpose:)
