Motherhood

I was invited by Emily at Wide Open Spaces to share my 5 favorite things about motherhood. I thought what a perfect time because three of my favorite bloggers are pregnant. Paige and Erika are expecting their first and sweet Jora is blessed with a third. I'm sure they can totally relate to what I'm feeling here.

1.) I love the look of surprise on their face when I share stories of my own childhood with them. They love hearing that Mommy was actually a kid just like them.

2.) I love looking into my husband's face when he's looking at our children because I know he feels exactly like I do. We're both shocked and amazed that we could create such perfect little people.

3.) I love it when they figure something out on their own for the first time.

4.) I love reading book after book to them, they like the stories but I love the closeness.

5.) I love sneaking into their rooms at night to stare at their sweet sleeping faces. They look like angels.
