We signed up for parenthood, is this what we wanted?  Last week I wrote about when being a parent is not so much fun (Last week's Blog), but there is a definite flip side.

Here are 10 special fleeting moments of being a parent...

  • mum  kidsThe ‘I’m not awake yet but goodmorning’ cuddles.
  • The spontaneous giggles - infectious!!
  • When they say a word incorrectly – my teenage daughter still says the television is fuzzily, not fuzzy, it was too cute for me to ever correct her hehe.
  • When they try and cook you breakfast in bed – yummm, 5 sugars in the coffee and pancakes with tomato sauce!?!?
  • The snuggle in of a sleeping child when moving them from the car into their bed.
  • When they ask the dog a question and look at him long enough expecting him to answer.
  • The expression on their face when they try a new food that isn’t so tasty yet.
  • When they literally jump up and down with excitement.
  • When they smile, use the word ‘mummy’ and look you right in the eye (melt!!).
  • When they are reading their teddy a story.

Being a parent is a privilege, not everyone appreciates those tender moments that happen so quickly.  Next time this happens to you, stop, smile, and recognise that very moment as the gift it is.

From the initial quote and booking to the baby sitting service, Cherished Cherubs have been outstanding all the way through!! It gave us complete peace of mind knowing our son was well looked after. - Christina, 3/3/20

We had Riana look after our 1.5 year old son for a few hours while we went out for dinner. From the moment she walked in the door both my son and daughter were obsessed with her. - Michelle, 31/8/20

Our babysitter Erica was fantastic, she went above and beyond to make our little people feel safe and happy. Strongly recommend her to others and will use again in the future. - Dale, 19/10/20

My children felt at ease with Ema straight away. She read them stories and settled them into bed. Booking and communication process was very straightforward and easy to use. Highly recommend - Hannah, 1/12/20
