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.

9. When they tell me about something they love. I love watching their eyes light up and their gears start working when I ask them about something they’re really into – like superheroes. They are so excited to explain to me how The Flash got his powers and what happened to his parents and what the bad guy’s deal is and every other detail of the universe, all with such energy and passion.

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!
