Connecting through 80 Clicks

This is a tag from Art - who got it from Boo who got it from HBM who is hoping to connect blogging Mothers all over the world in 80 clicks.

Here are the rules:Just write a post of your own (5 things that you love about being a mom) and find someone to link to and tag - someone from your own country, if you like, but definitely someone from another country - and link back here and leave a comment

Things I love about being a MOM.

I love how motherhood has changed my perspective. Vk comes ahead of my preferences’ these days. Even when shopping, I first look around the kids section before looking for anything else. My eyes always wander for good deals and discounts. Now I still look for these but I look around for him than for myself.

I am too scared/ shy to sing or even hum lyrics when in a group. For a long time Hubby kept pestering me to sing but I never budged and he eventually gave up on me. However these days I don’t care if I am in a group or in a public place... If VK needs to be pacified I sing to him. Every night I sing rhymes to him loud enough for Hubby to hear and I don’t care that it sounds bad… as long as it puts my little one to sleep.There goes my shyness flying out of the window!!

Motherhood had made me a more tolerant person. I hated a messy house. These days my house is messy most times with balls of different shapes and sizes scattered all over. I now contribute to the mess with getting balls in every shopping trip and also throwing them around the house and playing with him.

I have loosened up and dont worry anymore about plan changes and being in control. I have learned to enjoy each moment as it comes.

I love the fact that I am the most important person in someone’s life.( I know its sounds selfish !!!!) . Its give me so much pride that this little human depends totally on me and it’s my responsibility to nurture and protect him.
