Mom Love. Can you believe I sat stumped on this topic? This should be easy right? I even asked my husband what I should write about. I love my baby with all my heart, how can I not have a million things to say?

Maybe because it’s that simple.


I love my baby. So much.


That love is the reason leaving him when I go to work in the morning is so hard. It’s the reason my heart swells with joy when daycare sends a picture my way. It’s why seeing his eyes light up when he sees me at the end of the day or when I tuck him in feels so special.


Mom love is saying “you did it! I’m so proud of you!” over and over again the first time your little one takes a bottle. Mom love is cheering that same cheer when your little one goes to kindergarten for the first time or when they show you their first college acceptance letter. Mom love celebrates all the tiny moments along with the big ones, because we simply can’t help it. Our little ones are the sweetest people we are so proud to call ours.


The funny thing about mom love though, is that sometimes, because we love so much, our great love can make for challenging moments.


Whether you’re a new mom or a 70 years of experience mom, there are tough times. There are the times when all you want is your little babe to sleep – just for an hour, just to get a little sleep of your own. There are times when you cry because you cannot seem to stop your baby’s crying. There are even times when you just need to stop time, just for a minute, because they’re growing up just a little too fast.


These are times when it can be so hard to be a mom. But giving that special mommy love? That’s what gets us through the challenging times. It’s that deep love and caring for your little one that wishes sweet sleep on them, peace over them, and constant love when you’re not with them.


If there’s one thing I always want my little one to know, it’s that love.
