10 Little Things That Make Me a Happy Mama

Written by Tiffany R.

I have two silly boys, ages 4 and 5, and to celebrate Kathleen’s new book, Happy Mamas: An Ode to Motherhood, I’d like to share some little things that make me a very Happy Mama.

10. When they laugh – like really laugh. A good, belly laugh, gasping for air and all. Bonus points if I am the one that caused it. Right now, I adore that I can make them crack up and am dreading the day they realize I’m not actually funny.

Everyone tells us, “Take the time to appreciate these moments for they won’t last long.” We hear it so much it starts to lose its meaning. I have to admit, though, writing all these things down has made me feel so very lucky and grateful that I think I’ll make a habit of it.

What makes you a Happy Mama? We’d love to hear from you!
