priceless moments of parenthood

What is it that keeps us going in this crazy ride that is parenthood? In-between the tantrums, tears and need to hide in the cupboard and scream are some amazing every day moments and beautiful family memories that make our hearts melt and give us the strength and courage to march on another day. It is these highs that outweigh the lows, these beautiful everyday moments that we wouldn’t want to change for the world, that we have sacrificed so much for.

priceless moments of parenthoodGood luck everybody!


  1. Awww love this post. So true. Mini R is just starting to put two words together and I’m so proud of him.

  2. Aww I can’t wait for lots of these things! Aria has just learnt how to do kisses, she opens her month really wide and tries to suck my cheek but it is soo cute! Jemma x #coolmumclub

  3. Awww those lovely moments worth cherishing! First time Reimer went to school was a bittersweet moment, can’t explain how I felt that time. #coolmumclub

  4. This is so true! My favourite moment ever was when my three eldest came to the hospital to meet our youngest. That first moment of all four of them being together has been my favourite thing ever! #coolmumclub

  5. Gorgeous….can I add the moment your tantrumming toddler falls into a blissful, peaceful slumber after a tearful apology. Yep, loving that dream this evening…

  6. I laugh at funny pieces about saggy boobs, sympathise with sad mamas and join in with fun debates but NOTHING beats reading a lovely, positive piece like this. No, it isn’t always amazing (sometimes it’s downright shit) but I fundamentally LOVE being a mama and I think we should celebrate this awesome gift!

  7. Reading these just bought a tear to my eye thinking about how quick my two babies are growing! They amaze me daily and every moment them is so precious! Lovely post #CooolMumClub

  8. The awww….moments. I love it when my daughter “does” my hair as we chat. Or when any of my children put their hand in mine very willingly and they’re the one helping me across the road or when one of my children shares their cake with me. Yes, it does happen and I know I have hit the jackpot when they do that! #coolmumclub

  9. I am looking forward to every single one of these! I got made a pretend cuppa this week which I obviously thought was the sweetest thing ever. It can be so easy to talk about the challenges, but we love it really – and these are the reasons why #coolmumclub x

  10. What a beautiful post! It’s so important to take a moment to focus on the wonderful, positive parts of parenting (especially on those super stressful days!). Thanks for sharing 🙂 #coolmumclub

  11. Seeing my baby learn something new and do/say something for the first time; every cuddle and kiss; just too many precious moments x

  12. My favourite moments are when Leo snuggles into me and I ask ‘Who is your best friend’. He always says ‘You my best fwend’ It’s so sweet and makes me feel all warm inside!
