Whether it be finding out who "The Wiggles" are or discovering the secret to soothing a teething baby, we all know that a day doesn't go by without us learning something new as moms.
ESSENCE.com asked readers what life lessons they've learned from their kids, and we loved the answers ....
Kimberly Bady: "I've learned about God's unconditional love. My 5-year-old son woke up in the middle of the night recently and said, 'Mommy, hold me in your arms.' I held him for a few minutes and he returned to his bed. That was all he needed -- to be held. God reminded me that in those times I want to be held, He is there, He loves me and I'm not alone."
Fiona Roberts: "That the only perfect thing in this world is her toothless, gummy 3-month-old smile."
Karyn Davis: "I have learned to set goals for myself even through I am in [my] 50s. [My daughter] has clearly written out her goals for the next 15 years and is presently trying to stick to them."
