  • To be there for your LO. Anything that kid needs is your job. Whether it just be the essentials like food and drink or if the kid needs you to kiss a boo-boo.

  • To love your child with everything you have. If you do that everything else they need will fall in place.

  •'s knowing when to do all the important jobs of a mom.
    Seriously though, I can't really pick one over the other, but sacrifice was the first thought.
    I've been a mother for 14 years almost 15 and sometimes the hardest job is knowing the right thing to do, with that right thing always comes some sort of sacrifice, even if it is that little piece of you that slowly breaks to pieces because you know your child/children are growing up, or they have to learn the hard way. Sometimes the only thing as a mother that we can do is learn to sit back and shut yea Sacrifice is my answer.
