Although some people regret having children, there are still some that have things to be grateful for about being a mother. These five Nigerian women share the best thing about being a mother.
My favourite part of being a mother is the fact that I have little people that think I am the best thing since banana yoghurt. The way their faces light up when I walk in to a room, the way they try to impress me, I love it so much. Also, being able to impact another human being is nice.
There is something so great about watching a child grow from a tiny baby that needs constant care and help, to an adult that still somehow needs care and help. Watching them and knowing you were a major part of their lives almost makes everything worth it. Almost.
I think the best thing about being a mother, is that I am always learning from my kids. They see the world differently and are completely open. Being a mother has made me a better person in so many ways, and has helped me with knowing who I am. My children are also very entertaining and funny.

I was raped when I was 16, and I decided I was keeping the baby. I was alone in my head all the time and I thought a baby would change that. Did it change that though? No. I am still very alone in my head. The only difference is that now, I always know I am loved. No doubts, No maybes, No what ifs. Just loved.
It is hard to pinpoint one thing because I have really awesome children, and although they can be annoying, they are good. So, the best thing about being a mother are my awesome children.
