7 of My Favorite Things about Being a Parent ...


While it is true that your life completely changes after you have a baby, the best things about being a parent are what make it all worthwhile (and, of course, that little adorable and sweet face makes it pretty awesome, too).

While there are tons of things that I simply adore about being a mom, I want to share with you what I think are the best things about being a parent.2

So if you’re about to assume the role of a parent, get ready, because you’re in for the ride of your life.

1. Hugs and Kisses

Hands down, one of the very best things about being a parent is all of the hugs and kisses.

I just can’t get enough of them!

I turn into a big ball of mush every time my little guy runs up to me and gives me a big squeeze and a smooch.


I’m squealing with delight just thinking about them!

2. I Love You

This could really go with hugs and kisses, but hearing “I love you” from my son is on a level all its own.

The first time he said it, my heart melted into a pile of goo and it continues to do so each and every time he says it – and it will for the rest of my life.

3. Just Looking at Him is Amazing

There is something so magical about looking at that little being that I gave life to.

At least once a day, I stop everything and give him a good once over and I am awed.

He is this perfect little being that is so cute, so smart and so beautiful and I just love appreciating all of that.

4. The Laughs

There is nothing better than a giggle fit with a little one.

When he starts laughing, the whole house starts laughing.

I could be in the worst mood ever and when he starts to laugh, everything is suddenly right and I’m doubled over with laughter myself.
