Naturally I could say that my favorite thing to do is take photos or travel... or this... or that...but I won't.
The reality is this: right now my favorite thing to do in my world is be with her (My Daughter).
“Sometimes when you pick up your child you can feel the map of your own bones beneath your hands, or smell the scent of your skin in the nape of his neck. This is the most extraordinary thing about motherhood - finding a piece of yourself separate and apart that all the same you could not live without.” ― Jodi Picoult
“Motherhood is a choice you make everyday, to put someone else's happiness and well-being ahead of your own, to teach the hard lessons, to do the right thing even when you're not sure what the right thing is...and to forgive yourself, over and over again, for doing everything wrong.” ― Donna Ball
“Children aren't coloring books. You don't get to fill them with your favorite colors.” ― Khaled Hosseini
“The only love that I really believe in is a mother’s love for her children.” ― Karl Lagerfeld
“Don't handicap your children by making their lives easy.”
― Robert A. Heinlein
“Accept the children the way we accept trees—with gratitude, because they are a blessing—but do not have expectations or desires. You don’t expect trees to change, you love them as they are.”
― Isabel Allende
