Heart in My Throat: More Momku

Motherhood is all about heart. Why else would we do this to ourselves?

Only love would motivate us to such extremes. Why we bother learning to swaddle that baby burrito just right, why we attempt patience when erupt into tantrums… and why our heart rate accelerates when our little daredevils are in peril.

Personally, I blame said peril for my grey hair. Each and every single one of them. I’m not the only one, right?

Heart in my Throat

Tree Climbing

Adventurous one

Climbed to the top of the tree..

Just don’t break your neck!

Safe and Sound

Becoming a mom turned me into a complete worry wart. Guess it’s karma though: my kids climb trees almost as high as I used to.

We’ve all been there, and kids are especially creative in finding more ways to cause us moms to panic. How have your kids caused your heart to leap into your throat?

Momku continues with more wild adventures in motherhood, coming Friday. Will it be trying to bundle up an uncooperative toddler? Or baking up a storm? Stay tuned to find out.
