It is very educational to be a mother.......<br><br>
My daughter had taught me # 1..Patience.<br>
Also she has taught me to be more curious...... to laugh at things that I would usually get mad at (today I accidently hit our ceiling fan with a blanket, while making the bed, and broke the thing, and she laughed at it.)............and she has definetly taught me that I can actually love someone or something sooooooo much!!! Unconditionally...............<br><br>
How about you?? What has your child taught you?????? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/luxlove.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="throb">

Great thread. My dd had taught me so many things but I think that the most important one is that I realized that I never knew what was really happiness until she came to my life <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/heartbeat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="heartbeat"> .

I hate to admit that I didn't know this before. But...they taught me that children are wonderful, awesome people who deserve the utmost respect.

that my love for him is incalculable <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
... he is also my constant evidence that having fun with a baby is much, much more important and rewarding than a tidy house will ever be!

my ds has taught me to live in the moment, to really concentrate and enjoy completely what we are experiencing at any given time. this is something i have always had trouble doing, always thinking about what will happen next so musch so that i didnt appreciate the present

well, from the moment I concieved him after several miscarriages, DS taught me that if all I have is this moment with him, I will be so thankful for the rest of my days for it...<br><br>
and each day that he is here with me, I become a better person--more giving, more compassionate, more loving, more understanding, less selfish, less absorbed in things that don't matter, more disciplined at being the best person I can be to set the highest example I am capable of, and to hopefully give him the best chance to let his little light shine in this lifetime, as all children deserve. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

when I look at the world through her eyes, everything is so much more interesting, even a blade of grass, I have learned to be excited about simple things again, even if it is just seeing a bird or a worm

My babies have taught me how great and pure unconditional love really is. Even with all my misakes in parenting, and those times when I accidentally hurt them (you know, walking around a corner with the sling on, buckling some baby fat into the carseat), they still forgive you and love you. When my dd2 was younger I had to insert feeding tubes down her nose. It was awful and traumatic. And yet, even though I was the one doing it to her, she still forgave me and loved me and wanted only me when she was hurting. So great is the power of love that babies have for their parents. Even though we may say that we love someone unconditionally, don't we still harbor small grudges against them in our hearts? We could learn a lot from small babies.

That no matter how big or bad the bo-bo, chocolate will always make it better! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Patience, to me, is a work in progress thing! Just when you think you have enough, DD passes another milestone and presents me with yet another challenge! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/luxlove.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="throb"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/luxlove.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="throb"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/luxlove.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="throb"> my little girls!

Getting married to dh taught me patience.<br><br>
Having ds taught me how to have superhuman strength where he is concerned.<br><br>
DS has taught me that there is a love out there bigger than life. He has also taught me to be thankful for everything good in life. I wished for the best things-money, comfort, etc-thinking that was the key to happiness. Boy was I wrong!! He has also taught me that waking up early is great when you're greeted with a big smile! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">
