Being a mom is like taking a crash course in, well, everything. From learning new languages (baby talk counts as a language, right?) to learning how to get a ketchup stain out of white carpet, everyday is an adventure. Our kids constantly challenge us to be the best we can be, whether they are trying our patience by taking 40 minutes to eat their dinner, or teaching us generosity by asking us to share the last brownie. But above all they teach us what love really is—getting up at 3 am to sooth a crying baby when you only went to sleep at 1:30 and holding someone’s hand while they have a poop. This is my favourite part of being a mom—learning to be more compassionate, more patient, and more kind then I ever knew I could be.
