'It’s the Little Things that Make Being a Mom So Great'

Part 3 of our month-long Mother’s Day series.

Us Mom Squad Moms think motherhood is the best, most rewarding job in the world and we are so proud to be Moms. We love watching our children grow and delight in their accomplishments.

We are there to scoop them up and shower them with kisses when they get hurt, but we also know when to just let them do things on their own. It’s our job to teach them not only how to eat, talk, and walk, but also to be kind and well mannered, to share and to have empathy for others.

Moms teach children how to be little people from “scratch.”

Being a Mom means something a little different to each of us, so we asked Moms at all different stages of motherhood: What does being a Mom mean to you?

Each week leading up to Mother's Day, we’ll share their responses with you:

Joanie W:

Most recently, being a Mom means being covered in vomit. It also means having boogers somewhere on your person at all times. And, if there wasn’t some sort of slime or spit on me, then I wouldn’t know what to do. Most of my days are filled with wiping noses and washing hands and bottoms. Now, don’t let me aggrandize this for you... being a mom is AWESOME!

You are their EVERYTHING and that is a huge ego booster, not to mention intimidating as all get out. What mom doesn’t secretly feel a little bit of the ‘nanny nanny boo boo’ towards daddy when their little one reaches for you instead of them? Makes your heart (and head) swell, doesn’t it?

To be honest, it’s the little things that make being a Mom so great. Besides all the glamorous things I mentioned earlier, being there to share in all the small moments that make up their days is what makes being a Mom so great. Getting a good grade on their homework, finally learning how to write the letter ‘B’, being able to wave bye with their tiny little hand, those are the things I love about motherhood.

Being a Mom definitely makes you feel like you are a superhero. You are always on call and you can never take a day off. When my boys are sick, I am there to make them well. When my boys are happy, I am there to share in their happiness. When my boys are sad, I am there to comfort them.

You are constantly giving yourself to them. Your own body feels less and less like your own. It’s a jungle gym, feeding station and paper towel for your kids. But the minute they look into your eyes and hold your hand and tell you that they love you, it all makes sense and is TOTALLY worth it.

My kids are the reason I was put on this earth. They are the greatest thing to ever happen to me.

We all view our roles as mothers a little differently, but there is no denying how much we love our kids and our role as their Mom!
