2. “Today in an auditorium full of parents my son scanned the room looking for me.
When he saw me his face lit up the room.
He wasn’t looking for the perfect parent.
He was looking for his mom.
Don’t ever forget the power of simply being their mom.”

4. “Sometimes the smallest things take up the most space in your heart.” – Winnie the Pooh

5. “Attachment does not hinder independence, it fosters it. Cuddle those babies. Carry those babies. Let those babies sleep in your arms and on your chest and be with you all the time. They will start taking steps away from you when they’re ready.” – Emily Holdaway

6. “Making the decision to have a child – it is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” – Elizabeth Stone

7. “If I had my child to raise all over again,
I’d build self-esteem first, and the house later.
I’d finger-paint more, and point the finger less.
I would do less correcting and more connecting.
I’d take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.
I’d take more hikes and fly more kites.
I’d stop playing serious, and seriously play.
I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars.
I’d do more hugging and less tugging.”
― Diane Loomans

8. “We’re all imperfect parents, and that’s perfectly okay. Tiny humans need connection, not perfection.” – LR Knost

9. “Strong mothers raise strong daughters.” – Jessica A. Lane

10. “Sometimes the strength of motherhood is greater than natural laws.” – Barbara Kingsolver

11. “The phrase ‘working mother’ is redundant. ALL moms are ‘working moms’ because motherhood is a full-time job.”

And then they are parents, resembling a you, you once were. So take it in, mama. Let them climb into bed with you any hour of the night. Sing that song they requested for the 10th time. Hold them a little tighter when all they want is to shower with you and feel your skin against theirs. Maybe in raising children, you lose your mind a little bit. But, boy, do you find your soul!” -Sharon Hakes

It is always about happiness, love and satisfaction in life. It brings out the best and the worst in us. And we will always love our children unconditionally.”
