7 ways to enjoy motherhood

I'm totally overwhelmed with my four young kids, and I've been thinking a lot about ways to ENJOY motherhood, instead of simply enduring it. In fact, I wrote my latest parenting column about it for Utah Valley magazine. Here's the link. http://utahvalley360.com/2013/12/09/enjoying-moth…

I'd love suggestions from other moms on what brings them joy.

      Nice article.

      I think accepting where your children are instead of trying to put them (a square peg) in a round hole.

      I love my children's smiles and laughter. I love seeing how my children interact with each other and help each other without being asked to.

      Don't compare them to other kids. Don't compare yourself to other mothers. Both rob us of our joy in mothering.
