These are the things that matter to a mom:

food in her pantry
sloppy kisses from her children
an extra 1/2 hour of sleep
clean bathrooms
peacefully sleeping babes
combed hair
a shower longer than 5 minutes, and a bath if she can get it
feeling pretty
story time
tweezed eyebrows
love notes scribbled by the hand of her 6 year old
interpreting the requests of a silly 2 year old
bills paid
a vehicle in working condition
a good book
a good blog
macaroni necklaces
school picture ornaments
time to herself
good deodorant
a willing babysitter
a little bit of spending money
cute shoes
cooperative children
supportive husband
restful naps

I couldn't agree with you more! While I was reading your list, I was actually smiling! All of those things make a mother happy! Especially tweezed eyebrows! :)

Great list. I don]t get some of those things anymore (sloppy kisses) and get plenty of others (showers), but the memories of the ones that have gone are some of the best. Treasure them (and then find a napkin!)
