I know every parent gushes about their little one. It doesn’t matter how much of a stinker he or she may be, the parents still believe with all their being that their kid is 100% the best.
And I am no exception.
Being a stay at home mom was a hard decision. I loved my job, my coworkers, and my routine. So trading that for being at home with my boy was difficult at first. But it’s been the best whirlwind adventure of highs and lows, uncertainties and tears, joy beyond belief, and lots of love.
And on days like yesterday, where I felt a little overwhelmed, a little sleep deprived, and a little unworthy, my sweet boy toddled up to me, put his heavy head on my shoulder, and patted me on the back and whispered, Mama in his sweet, raspy voice.
That’s all I needed to hear. That’s all the encouragement I needed. It was a good day, even though the laundry was half done and my to-do list continues to grow without much being crossed off. So, yes, I am one more parent saying that my kid is 100% the best around.
