Growing up I always wanted to give my children more than what I had growing up, so some spoiling seems inevitable. Growing up I didn't have even the simple things like pictures of myself as a child so instead I capture hundreds of pictures of my little princess. After experiencing such a hard time getting pregnant and then a troublesome pregnancy I have learned to really appreciate every single moment I have with my daughter. Most people on my Facebook timeline are part of the Thankful project for the month of November. At first. I thought that I may take part in the thankful project and then I began to really thinking about the things that I am truly thankful for. Above all I am truly thankful to be a Mommy! Becoming a mommy gave me a purpose. I became a better person because now I look at life through two little eyes that are watching my every move. Children have a way of making life seem as simple as it really is. It’s easy to get caught up in the little annoyances that can feel so big to an adult — but life doesn’t have to be that complicated. So instead of doings a daily thankful project, I decided that I will write about a dozen reasons why I am thankful for my daughter.

1.  I am thankful for  having cuddle buddy.
2.  I am thankful for training my resistance to patience.
3.  I am thankful for helping dig through my creativity.
4.  I am thankful for all of the laughing moments that you give your daddy and I.
5.  I am thankful that you think I am perfect just the way I am.
6.  I am thankful for being happy with the little things.
7.  I am thankful for you celebrating when I go to the potty.(lol)
8.  I am thankful for testing the level of my sanity with your endless tantrums.
9.  I am thankful for helping me define unconditional love.
10. I am thankful for all of the little hugs and kisses.
11. I am thankful for the opportunity to watch your dad be the best daddy a little girl could ask for.
12. I am thankful for you allowing me to be your mommy so I can watch you grow into a beautiful woman.

Just because you give birth to a child doesn't make you a mother! Being a mother means taking care of your kids, cuddling, watching them grow, watching them play and argue, being there for the good and the bad, and most importantly showing them your unconditional love every second of EVERYDAY!



  1. I can so relate even though I have no kids as yet because I do plan to be a mom someday. I think your approach is awesome. She will appreciate the many photos and all that you give when she is grown. Good job!
