What I Love About Being a Parent: Kim Rowe

It’s hard to believe that it’s already April 23rd, isn’t it? Throughout the month of April, I’ve been teaming up with my friend Jennifer Cooper of Classic Play to celebrate the joys of parenting. We’ve been preparing for Mother’s Day by asking some of our friends to share what they love most about parenting. Each week, we’ve been hearing from a different mom. This week, my friend Kim is sharing her heart with us, and I love what she has to say.

Kim says, “What I love about being a parent is how it has stretched and pushed and smashed me into the very best version of myself. And what I love too is how it continues to. I mean the reaching and growing is never ending really when my teachers, my beautiful daughters, are ever-changing themselves.

And that’s the stuff. I love it. I do.

Because now I know important stuff. Like, I know me. So I’m in love with my role as parent and pupil and thankful for each lesson my Little Teachers give.”

I love that, Kim, because it’s so true! We often think that we are the teachers, but we are constantly being taught along this journey. It’s beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing that, Kim!

Come back next week for another What I Love About Being a Parent post!

Kim is a licensed and certified speech-language pathologist and adoring mother. You can read more from Kim at her blog, Little Stories.

    You know what, I feel like becoming a parent made me know ‘me’ better too! It also made me strive to be the best version of myself. I’m two growing people’s role model now. Eek!
