19 totally awesome things about motherhood

1. Cuddles, so many cuddles. How did I survive without all these cuddles?

2. Responsibility. Get up early, get out the house, don't drink vodka (much).

3. Play. We forget to play and it's so good for the soul.

4. That learning to ride a bike feeling - I'm doing it, I'm doing it, I'm really doing it!

5. Finding a new tribe. Mums rock. Fact.

6. Understanding your parents better (I'm sorry.)

7. Time alone feeling like a holiday.

8. Being an inspiration.

9. Being forced to think about someone else.

10. Knowing you can make mistakes and it will all be okay.

11. Having a reason to try your best, even when you really really don't want to.

12. Seeing the best bits of yourself in someone else.

13. Having a reason to say no to the things you just don't want to do.

14. Being with someone who sees the ordinary as extraordinary.

15. Discovering a whole new branch of the internet and all the lovely people that live there.

16. Learning new skills every day.

17. Understanding yourself on a deep and sometimes painful level.

18. Believing that if you can do this, you can do anything.

19. Love. Loving someone so much it hurts.
