Wow, you guys, we loved seeing all of your happy moments for our ‘What makes you happier as a parent challenge’. I don’t think you need to be a parent to appreciate them — they are just these wonderful, inspiring, funny, simple, and awesome snippets of life you captured about your kids.
As I was browsing through them, I realized that as parents, there are some common things that makes us happier. We are different, our kids are different, and yet, we all have a lot in common. So, inspired by your happy moments, here are just a few things that make parents happier:
Celebrating kids’ small triumphs
Watching kids invent new ways to do things
Coming up with fun family traditions to make routines happier
Getting unexpected compliments
Seeing kids become awesome humans
Having their own comedy act on call
And without a doubt, at the end of exhausting, busy, hectic days of juggling a bajillion things and trying to keep their sanity, all parents I know love and appreciate one kind of happy moments:
Watching their kids sleep
Thank you for sharing your parent happy moments with us and the Happier community!
