Top 3 Thursday
The Unexperienced Mom's Top Three Thursday Question this week was interesting to me today. So I decided to play along.
This week's question: What are your Top 3 favorite things about being a parent?
1. My favorite thing about being a parent is those hugs and kisses for no reason. I love seeing the unconditional love a child give their parents and a parent gives their child. I love the fact that I have shown my sons this love and they in turn now show it to me.
2. I love watching my sons grow and learn. I love the fact that I can help them grow and learn to be productive members of society. That I can help them grow into confident strong me.
3. My 3rd reason is the fact that I feel like I've found a new me. I think being a mother has been a completion of who I am. As a teacher, I felt like I mothered a lot of the children in my classes, but couldn't be their real parent (for soooo many reasons). Now as a mother I feel like I am that parent that I couldn't be for my students. I feel like my sons are a huge part of me and help me feel like I'm the whole me.
