Like any family, we have our good days and our bad days. Lately, it’s been more of “those days” than the good days, but we are going through teething hell. I say we, because it’s BOTH of them. Jellybean, always ahead of the game, is cutting her 12 year molars, and Scooby, poor thing, is cutting his 2 year molars. I am very lucky right now to get 2 solid hours of sleep straight in a row. This means I am less than my best as well (and drowning myself in Sour Cream & Onion potato chips, this months insatiable craving).

When it’s all said and done though, it’s not hard to find reminders of why I love being a mom and wouldn’t trade it for anything else in the world.

5. It’s constant laughter.
4. Every day brings a new learning experience, especially from Scooby’s perspective.
3. I can talk to myself in the car and not look like a crazed loser.
2. Hugs, lots and lots of hugs. And goodnight kisses.

But the number one reason I love being a mom?

“Lubbalubbablublala” in high crescendos and low basstones. Rinse, repeat. The sheer joy of flicking your tongue vertically from lip to lip as fast as you can while making lots and lots of noise songs without words. Then watching your 2.5 yr old mimic you, and falling on the floor together in a fit of giggles.

You just can’t beat that.

What things remind you of why you love being a mom?

  1. >My three year old has this amazing belly laugh and when he gives it to me for something I've done – all the sleepless nights are worth it:)

  2. >So cute!!!! I agree with every day being a learning experience.Teething is the worst. We lucked out with our 2 year old. We were at the dentist about 2 months ago and he told us she already had her molars. I was like, "uhhh…really". She was the worst teether as a baby.

  3. >Great post Drama Mama! Some of the things that bring me back to center and remind me of why I love being a mom are:-handmade birthday cards-"flowers" hand picked from the garden-a refrigerator full of artwork and -a laundry room full of dirty clothes lolThanks for the great post and for stopping by my place. Enjoy the garlic grilled cheese sammies! Let me know how the kids like it. Have a great day.Kristi, Live and Love…Out Loud@TweetingMama

  4. >We are lucky to have missed out on tooth pain for both kids so far (knock on wood). My favorite thing right now is Bella saying, "I jus yub…" fill in the blank. She pretty much "yubs" everything. šŸ™‚

  5. >Oh I love this post! I just stopped by from SITS to say Happy Saturday and am glad I did. My daughter is three and my latest post is about how wonderful I am finding this age so I totally appreciate what you say about playing with your 2 1/2 year old and those 2 year molars are THE worst to deal with. We didn't have sleepless nights with them, just hell filled days for about a month!!
