I’m not going to lie and say being a mother is easy, far from it.
If anything being a mom is one of the hardest jobs in the world and one of the most undervalued jobs.
However, that doesn’t take away from how important it is, and how rewarding it is.
But it’s not all bad either.
Whenever most women going into motherhood think about what their new role is going to be, they think about having to deal with colic, sleepless nights and tantrums.
But that’s not always the case.
Here are 14 reasons why being a mom is the best job in the world!
Whether they need comforting, they’re sleepy or just fancied a cuddle, it’s pretty awesome to always be at the very top of someone’s cuddle list.
Meeting your newborn
Honestly, nothing beats it.
When you hold your newborn baby in your arms after nine months of discomfort, not to mention childbirth, it is incredible.
Eat cake every day during pregnancy with the knowledge that you can worry about it at some point in the distant future. Also if you breastfeed you can keep it up even longer!
Sharing your passion
If you like baking, football, painting, or even nature books you can share your passions with your children. Who knows? It may even become a shared passion!
The first time they read a book to you. Their first steps. The nursery nativity. Going off to uni. Whatever stage you’re child is at you’ll always be their number one fan.
There’s nothing boring about parenting.
You learn so much about yourself, how to interact with other people, how to control your temper and, yes, you even learn how to persuade people to do things they don’t want to do! It’s a handy trick to learn.
A year off of work with the world’s smallest boss? Yes please!
You get a small break away from deadlines and presentations. What can I say? It’s a perk of the job!
Being a mom is filled with those special moments with your child that you wouldn’t get anywhere else. Taking a trip to Disney Land is magic, but it’s even better when your child is with you!
When your pregnant with your child, as long as it’s not something you can’t have, you have the best excuse to eat whatever you want. Just put it down to a craving… No one will ever know!
Behaving like a kid
This may stop one day (though I hope not), but it’s just another fun way you can bond with your kids. Whether it’s by helping to collect sticks, count ants, or help them color a coloring book. Bonding with your kids is the best!
Greatest excuse of all time
Having children provides a good excuse to many things. From not washing your hair to staying in on a Friday night.
Hell, now you’ve got a good excuse to crack open a bottle of wine!
