51 Reasons Why I'm Thankful for My Mom

Before I became a mom, I was in my own world. I got to do whatever I wanted with no care or worries but for myself and my agenda.

Of course it changed after I had my baby. My life revolved around her. Making sure she was fed, changed and happy. I cared about her development and how I can improve her skills like cheering her on to make the first steps, or getting over the fear of sitting on grass or choosing the right sippy cup so she can move on from the bottle.

There’s so much I’ve learned becoming a mom that made me appreciate my mom even more.

I thought it would be fun to make my version of reasons why I love my mom, some you may relate. This can be a good idea to make your own list to gift your mom this Mother’s Day. Enjoy!
