Hello February, the month of love and all things red and heart shaped!
Motherhood isn’t just about sleepless nights, piles of laundry and tantrums. It is actually pretty awesome and there are a lot of reasons I love being a mother.
There are always sweets in our home. Often they are hidden so well I can’t find them but I love that when the sweet craving hits, I can always find something, somewhere.

We spend a lot of time in the car between extra muruals (yes we still do, even now that we are homeschooling). I don’t enjoy the racing around but I now really enjoy the time with my older two. They both have a really great sense of humour and we have often over the past few weeks laughed so hard we have cried.
I love that I get to got to bed early. I moan a little (ok sometimes a lot) about our bedtime drama but in reality I love being able to go to bed early every night and not feel guilty.
No one judges me if I binge watch Disney movies all weekend.
My love for superheros is always explained by the fact that I have kids!

You know that moment when you arrive at school or a sports match and your child spots you for the first time. It is a few seconds of eye contact but their whole demeanor changes, they relax because they have just spotted their safe place. It doesn’t matter how old they get, in fact those moments come to mean more the older they get. When they are teens they can’t run across the parking lot, excited to see you, so the eye contact conveys so much. It is in those split seconds that I love being a mother the most because it is then I realise just how strong the bond is that we share and just how absolutely amazing being a mother is.
I would love to hear some of the reasons you love being a mother.
