The top 10 parenting moments
10 priceless mom and dad milestones that you will never forget.
1. ‘We’re pregnant’
All the excitement, hope and trepidation in the world live in those 2 words.
2. The first scan
Seeing that little bean-shaped blob on a scan for the first time and hearing the trip of the heartbeat makes it real.
3. The birth
After a long labour or a swift Caesar, the moment you meet your baby is the start of something beautiful.
4. He slept through!
For most parents, that first night the baby sleeps through is like a precious gift.
5. The first words
Hoping against hope that he says your name first, you’ll be thrilled by every recognisable word.
6. Telling a joke
To hear that sense of humour develop is hilarious – even after the 10th knock-knock joke.
7. First day of school
Shining shoes, neat hair and a huge backpack – who wouldn’t want to shed a tear to see their baby so grown up?
8. A text from your kid
Nothing gladdens the heart more than a message from your child, even if it’s a text that says: ‘Mom pse ftch’
9. Licensed to drive
Put your child behind a wheel of a vehicle and you’ll feel instantly obsolete.
10. ‘We’re pregnant!’
Hearing your child say those words starts the cycle all over again. Priceless!
What are the moment you are sure you’ll always remember?
