Things that make being a mom worth it

I love being a mom, I feel it's what I was born to do. That doesn't mean I always do a good job though, like every parent I make my share of mistakes. Luckily kids are very forgiving and I haven't screwed them up too bad so far :) Plus the rewards far outweigh any costs.

* Sleepy cuddles

* Slobbery kisses

* "I wub you Mommy"

* Tickle attacks

* Squeals and giggles and belly laughs

* Pride in their accomplishments

* Their joy in the simple things

* Laughing in their sleep

* Seeing Hubby be such a great Daddy

What other rewards do you just love about being a parent?

Oh, I LOVE this list! You are right on the money with this one. My 18mo has learned that he LOVES to give hugs and kisses. It's the greatest!!!
