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.

1. And most of all, I think I am happiest when I go into their rooms at night long after they’ve dozed off, kiss them on their so soft cheeks, and tuck them into their warm beds. It’s so simple yet often overwhelms me because in that moment I am so grateful, so in love, and so happy.

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!
