I am a super Mommy!!

Thought I would get something light on the message board today!!

Last night I felt like Super Mommy because my little man (19 months old) was whimpering in his sleep, obviously uncomfortable. I did a light back rub but moments later he was awake and whimpering....a closer look revealed a rare, leaky diaper and soaked through PJ's......in the dark, I took my little one into my arms and laid him on the spare bed....in moments he was changed and snuggling happily in my arms....I put him down in his crib and he fell back into dreamland with no problems. It is in these small moments that I realize how proud I am to be a Mommy; it is so wonderful to be so responsible for the well-being of such a small person. It amazes me that something so dreaded at times (most often I am faced with a "Oh-great-you're-here-can-I-get-up-and-play" toddler standing in his crib at midnight) can turn into such a heartfelt memory. And I know my son thinks I am a super Mommy because every night when we say our bedtime prayers, he will hold my chin and gently kiss my lips goodnight; now that is a reward!!!

I hope you enjoyed what I shared; I can't wait to read what makes other Mommy's feel super.

Cheers to Motherhood!!

How can you be Super Mommy? There's only room for one of us and I'm sorry but I've got you beat. Roxanne is 24 months so I've clearly been at this MUCH longer than you! *giggles*

In all seriousness, thanks for sharing. You're absolutely right. Roxanne comes up to me at the most random times of day, face to face, grabs my cheeks with her lil' chubby hands, looks at me with the most adoring eyes and says, "mommy, I wuv you!".....it's enough to melt anyones heart.

I am 6 months pregnant with my 2nd & feeling like Super Mommy because I still manage to do all the little things that keep our lives ticking over & keep a smile on my gorgeous daughter's face everyday.

My 'moment' came the other day when my daughter (2 & 1/2) who is VERY excited about having a little brother & talks to him through my belly all the time came up, hugged me, kissed my belly & said "Hello baby. You're my brother & Mummy loves you just like she loves me". I couldn't speak for about an hour. It still brings tears to my eyes to think that I brought that wonderful little person into the world.

a heart warming story. its good to read good things sometimes. i had PPD when i had my daughter and when she was 6 months i looked at her sitting on the floor one day and she smiled at me the biggest most beautiful smile in the world and i looked and thought 'thats my baby' i picked her up gave her the biggest hug ever and we have been like 2 peas in a pod since. it lifted as quick as it decended. i too think since then i have been a great mum to my kids and it is the most rewarding job in the world.
