I love when my son wakes up in the morning and runs to our room. He climbs in the bed with us and always wants to snuggle with me for a while. He kisses me and often tells me "Hi. I love you." One morning he told me that he missed me when he was sleeping. Moments like that melt my heart and make me feel so lucky. The worst is when he is sick or not feeling well and I feel so helpless because I can't make him better.

Quoting Mary :

Mine are 6-girl & 4-boy....Bests are those sleepy snuggles when the just wake up or when they're finally getting tired around bedtime, watching them sleep (or sometimes talk in their sleep), and watching the 2 of them horseplay with their Daddy

Worsts....are those times when I feel completely overwhelmed whether it's the two of them arguing or fighting nonstop or like Lianne said the tantrums or the never ending housework...the very worst is worrying when one of them gets sick or hurt



my kids are grown (or at least they think they are :), mine are 27, 24,23 and 21, I have 5 grandkids...my kids were all little at the same time..as matter of fact my 23 and 24 year old were 10 half months apart...OMG...not even a year apart...so none of this is new to me, sometime you have to go by trial and error!



3 boys before I got my daughter...some home remedies for earaches that have been in my family and it does work..for earaches got a bottle of sweet oil, its a small brown bottle you can get at like walgreens or walmart...pour a couple little drops on a teaspoon, heat up the bottom of the spoon so its a bit warm, have them hold their head on a table and pour a drop at a time and massage the ear part under the lobe area to get it to go down and it will make it feel better, as it goes til it comes to the edge of the ear and put a cottonball in it so it doesnt come out,, another one sounds a bit weird but if you take and cut an onion and get the core out and cut it so it is flat, stick it in the ear for a little while and it draws the ear infection out!!!



 



for the not going to bed, nothing to drink after 7 or 8 pm, no sugar, cookies,pop, tea... nothing that will "wake" them til they dont want to go to bed. brushing their teeth also gives them and let them know after brushing its bedtime. Tantrums, IGNORE THEM til its over, the more attention you give them ,the more they act up...

I don't know. SOOOOOO many wonderful things about being a mom. the "i love you, mommy"s the smiles, the hugs, the kisses, the cuddles, watching the kids play nicely together, dancing, stories (made up and real), being excited about EVERYTHING, their innocence, the sparkle in their eyes, their giggles, their jokes, their never ending energy and zest for life (my kids wake up talking and with a smile),

Some of the things that bother me: "mommy, can I have. . . . ." constantly all day long (esp. after I have finally sat down for 2 seconds). and the noise. *i didn't realize before I had kids how loud they can be*

regardless of those negative things, the positives FAR outweigh the negatives and I wouldn't change a thing. I was born to be a mom. :-)))))

Best things are his smiles and cuddles and how funny he is. Worst things are the tiredness and endless mess.

Lol
I love this question, the easiest! I love being a mom when my son yells love you and says pees and thank you, when he giggles and how he really cuddles with me, how he's a total momma's boy!!
The worst part is how it seems to go sooo fast!!! time flies and I want my son to still be a baby ;). . .That and being sick when the kids are is a bummer cuz I can't help a ton :(

My kids are 5, 3 and 7 mo.



My favorite things are:



When my 5 yo son holds the door for me and does sweet things like give me kisses and put his arm around me when I'm playing the organ at church. (he likes to sit with me during the postlude and the organ is in the back of the sanctuary)



When my 3 yo says funny things that only a 3 yo would say and when she pretends to be a baby again because it means that Dad and I get extra cuddles.



When my 7 mo raspberrys at my breast mid feeding... and really just about everything she does because she's a sweet baby and I love this age.



My least favorite thing: is when I want to do something/go somewhere and can't because I can't leave the baby for more than 2-3 hours at a time, or because we can't find a sitter. But it's all worth it.

the worest for me is the 5 or 6 am wake up call from my boys! but when they see me it makes it worth every lil bet of sleep lost. also don't like the tantrums! i don't think any mom does. but for me those thing out way everything else for me.

The worst is his charming habit of spitting up less than 5 minutes after I change his sleeper. ;)
The best? Everything else -- the smiles, the laughs, the babbling, seeing his little hand clutch mine while I'm feeding him, seeing the wonder and delight in his eyes as he discovers his world, squeezing his chubby little thighs and kissing his chubby cheeks, having him conk out in my arms and knowing that this tiny little being trusts me so completely.

When I picked my daughter up when she was little and she patted me on the back with her little hand. There are so many bests that out weight the worse. The worse was the teen years. OMG, never again thank you.

Best thing is playtime, and when he wants to talk on the phone to everyone (he is 1). Worst thing is when he won't eat! or when he is sick.

best is the way she says "OOOOOOO" when something new and exciting is presented to her. well, that and the hugs. the worst is the lack of sleep and worrying about everything all the time. but even that is worth it.

i needed this one today. had a tough day at church with my boys today and when you multiply that by 7 kids....the worst is definitely days like today when noone wants to listen and i am tired and worn out from being pregnant with number 8.
the best would be when i tuck them in at night and they remember that i love them and to tell me they love me too. the sweet little presents they bring me from school or even just when they are playing outside. or the wonderful family giggle moments when they get a joke i tell them or play on them.

best thing for me is the love my daughter gives me all the smiles and hugs and things. i also love watching her learn new things and grow up so fast.
the worst thing is when she is ill and i cant do much to make her feel better. or when she has a tantrum.

Among the best things are her hugs and kisses! She gives the most loving hug ever and giggles after putter her open mouth to my lips for a kiss (a little sloppy, but soo cute!) Worst is the smell of a dirty diaper, now that she is on solids and soy mlk. The best and worst things change every few days, but those are what they are today :)

Lack of sleep is the worst by far....
The best~ dang its hard to choose... the I love yous, the hugs with their small little hands, the look on their faces when they discovered something new about themselves or the world... I could go on and on and on

Best of me are knowing that I can love so much, feeling that I am the most important for her, the most needed, beiing the first to face all her new achievements, being the one she runs to to be calmed when gets hurt, knowing what is on her mind anytime. The hardest: lack of sleep in the very begining.
