7 Times Being A Mom Is Unexpectedly Awesome
As parents it can be easy to focus on the negative parts of parenting– the sleepless nights, the battles over dinner, the constant worry that you’re failing at raising your child. But there are plenty of great things about being a parent. It’s not just the deep sense of love and affection thatÂ existsÂ between a parent and childÂ (though that’s pretty fantastic).There are lots of unexpected perks that will make you love being a mom even more.
1. When I’m hungry.
Kids are famous for eating snacks constantly and never finishing the food you order for them. When my burger has already taken the trip into my gullet and I’m still feeling a bit peckish, there’s bound to be a rejected chicken nugget or two nearby.
2. When I really don’t want to go to that party.
Even though you were all for it at the time, now that the day for your co-worker’s BBQ has finally arrived, you just don’t feel like packing up the family and going. Saying your child isn’t feeling well is the perfect excuse that lets you stay home without hurting the host’s feelings.
3. When they fall asleep on me.
Few things on earth make me feel the warm fuzzies like when my kids snuggle up on and start to snooze, because it it provides me with the perfect excuse to ignore that pile of laundry in the basement just a little longer.
