I am going to indulge myself and post this.

I LIKE my kids. I know that tomorrow I may feel completely frustrated so for right now, I am going to indulge myself and bask in the glow that is this pride in who my kids are.

I don't mean the love I feel for them as their mom. And not exactly the pride I feel for how smart they are. I like who they are as people. A good deal of this is just who they were born to be, but also a result of who they chose to be (or are expected to be.)

They are funny, kind, normal kids. I enjoy having them around, being in their company. I feel very very lucky for it. I know plenty of grown ups who don't like kids in general, and as much as they love their own, they don't seem to enjoy being around them.

ok, not trying to get up on a soap box, just had to get this off my chest.

What better way than to share with my favorite go-to peeps?

Aw. I love this, mamma. I also say I'd think my girls were awesome even if they weren't mine. Because they are.

I'm loving getting to know the people they are becoming.

For now I'll just enjoy the adorables:

DDAlmost4: Thank you for making me, mummy. This is exactly the skin colour I wanted.

What a sweet post! I feel the same way with my adult kids, even though they (one in particular) drives me crazy and breaks my heart pretty regularly, I do love them so much. They make me smile in their uniqueness, their silliness, their individuality, and so many other things.

SBB, that is just precious.

What is hilarious is she was sitting there quietly in her carseat admiring her arms like one would precious jewellery or a fancy dress. I asked her what she was doing. That was her response. GOLD!!

I love this thread

I chose not to have children very early in my life...not because I don't love them or appreciate them but because I knew I wouldn't be a great mom.

I mean, anyone can be a mediocre mom but I wanted to be a great mom, which I just don't have in me

Children are such a precious gift and it pains me greatly when I see a parent yelling at their kids or just overall being really obvious that they'd rather not be around them. I always feel like walking up to them and asking what is so irritating about their own kids that they have to scowl and yell at them

I'm happy to read all about your GREAT moms!!

This is a nice thread to read.

DS, you're mommy to 40k kids, and you're helping to raise, mold, and guide us through our issues that brought us here. You're a fantastic mommy.

My girls have about 10 'aunties' - GFs of mine who have no children mostly by choice, a few by circumstance.

These aunties are a very important part of my girls lives and vice versa. I want them to have lots of strong, smart, independent role models in their lives.

It takes a village to raise a child - I for one am grateful for everyone in my little village.
