    The best thing about being a mum? Looking at my tearaway toddler, and feeling the pride surge through me. I grew her. Me. There’s no better feeling.

    Best thing about being a mum is having your 5 year old say the words ‘I love you mum’.

  3. January 11, 2011 / 10:01 pm

    the feeling of “I made this” ever time my daughter says a new word, does a dance, makes me smile, eats all her dinner or generally makes me proud.

    the best thing about being a mum for me is haveing the chance as i never thought id be a mum.watching our little 1s grow from a baby to a child then a adult in yrs to come watching every special moment in their lifes makes it all worth being a parent as my kids make me proud to be a mum and im sure they always will.

  6. January 11, 2011 / 10:57 pm

    The best thing about being a mum, is leaving Baba somewhere when I am working and going to collect him, and hearing him shout from the top of his voice. “Mummmmmmiiiieeee” and running to me to hug my leg as he only stands as high as my knee that there is love! xx

    The best thing for me is that even with all the ups and downs that go along with it, I really feel being a mum has completed me, and I would be a lesser person without my children.

  9. January 12, 2011 / 7:55 am

    The best thing so far? Seeing the baby move around so much on the scan last week. I didn’t realise it would be so active & I was enthralled. S/he turned to the camera & waved… so the shy retiring type then… wonder who s/he takes after?!

    It’s hard to pick one thing… all the daily challenges and achievements and perhaps most of all seeing your child’s own personality emerge makes being a parent the most amazing thing.

  11. January 12, 2011 / 9:28 am

    It’s so hard to pick a single best things about being a parent. It makes you a different person, a better (though more tired) person & you experience things through them. Being a mum makes me happy.
