Feeling a little worn out from being home all day with the kids? Here's a boost: A reassuring reminder about the many, many benefits of being a mom.

  • Mother's Day, obviously.

  • Also Father's Day, because when else are you treated like a national hero for making pancakes and frying bacon?

  • There's no shame in needing to be needed (it does feel nice) and you know what? That kiddo does need you. For food, for comfort, for love.

  • A baggie of Goldfish in your purse at all times. Handy! Delicious!

  • One word: "Ma-ma."

  • For better or for worse, your name is the first they call when they have a boo-boo or a fever. This will be true probably through college.

  • You've got an absolutely reasonable excuse to go to bed at 9 pm.

  • And think of all the money you're saving by not going out!

  • Petting zoos. C'mon, the llamas are pretty much the most entertaining show in town.

  • Maternity jeans. As if they're just for pregnancy.

  • "We are now boarding first class...and families with small children."

  • The excitement of finding boxes of toys in your parents’ home from when you were a kid—which become your child’s new favorites.

  • Did you ever think you'd be able to order cheese-fries again after age 17? And yet...fries with calcium on top seems like a good idea with a kid around, especially one who wants to share.

"Wanna snuggle, Mommy?"

    Rated 0 out of 5 by I love boarding planes with the kids, even if there is the exciting part of awkwardly changing their diaper in the smallest possible bathroom space know to man. Hilarious memories that are only possible with kids. August 8, 2014
    Rated 0 out of 5 by Being a mom has its ups and downs but overall it is the most rewarding job you can have. You discover the true meaning of life itself and the joy of the little things. You tend to find every new thing they learn to be heart warming and the pride that goes with it everlasting.A mom also discovers her talents through the journey.. like how many items she can hold and multi task (a car seat, diaper bag, groceries, purse and gosh forbid the keys to open the front door) May 25, 2013
