Parents Share the Reasons They're Lucky

Becoming the mother of two ultra amazing, super hilarious, often annoying, uber adorable boys has made me the luckiest mom in the world. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t praise the heavens for blessing me in such an unbelievable way.

If you’ve ever gazed lovingly into your child’s eyes and wondered how you got to be so lucky; this is the post for you.

In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day I asked the Babble readers for what made them feel lucky to be THEIR child’s parent. Your answers were filled enough sublime gratitude to melt my heart like buttah.

Let’s celebrate the gift of parenting with the touching reasons why our Babble readers are lucky to be their child’s parent:

    "At the risk of sounding cheesy - I wonder all the time why God felt I was worthy of being my daughter's mom. Truly. She's such an amazing little person. Bright, funny, sensitive. She's a wonderful gift, for which I am so grateful."
