Being a Parent

See, here’s the thing.

What makes it worth all the pain in the ass-ness of being a parent—the diapers, the crying, the tantrums—and don’t underestimate how difficult being a parent is, what makes it all worth it?

I make it all better.

Whether it’s a cut that I kiss, or just being there after a nightmare, or anything that frightens him, I make it all better.

Tonight, like most nights, my son had a nightmare. I walked in and sat down on his bed, and he went back to sleep because deep down, he knew he was safe.

It’s magical, that moment.

    Ahhh, those moments are really what life is all about. As a mother to a 13 year old, these moments are fewer and fewer but I think that makes them even more special.

  2. I have to agree. And it only gets better as they get older. (yeah right.. ha. enjoy it while it lasts) KIDDING. It does get better. Just ask my 17 and 16 year old!
