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.
7. Parent teacher conferences. Man, it is awfully nice to hear from someone else that they just adore your kid. I’d give anything to be a fly on the wall on their first days of kindergarten, but it makes me happy and proud to know they’re growing into their own interesting selves.
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!
