Happy Mother's Day

We had a really nice Mother's Day. The kids, thanks to SuzAnne, got me flowers. And of course I got all the beautiful things they made for me at school. We were able to spend time with my grandparents and extended family as well. We made it home just in time for Mason to get sick. So far I've only been puked on once. Yes, I am a mother in the true sense of the word today.

This year is a little different for me than last. I can't even remember how I was feeling last year. I don't know if I was sad or not. I'm not really sad this year, just feeling a lot of pressure to be a mom and provide and all that goes along with that. Last year if I remember right, the only thing I was focused on was knowing in over a month, which ended up being less than two weeks, I was going to be having a baby. I was very focused on that June 6th delivery date. Who knew 9 days later little man would be here. He has been such a joy...they all have been to me. They have been great today. I've been trying extra hard today to soak in the hugs and kisses. I don't want to look back when I'm 70 and be upset with myself that I ever "wished" this time away. They're be grown and gone before I know it!

Happy Mother's Day to all of the mom's out there!

Happy Mother's Day to you. You are the best mom I know. You inspire me in MANY ways! I am glad you felt celebrated today and felt the joy of your children. God has blessed them MUCH with you as their mom! I miss your face, in person. These are crazy times for us right now but I think about you lots and want to get together once we are back in town and moved. Love you sweet lady.

Happy Mother's Day to you. Man, I admire you! You need to be celebrated everyday for all you do. Try and take it easy between being puked on and all the other things that have to be done :)!!

Yes, soak it all up. Even when Madi shows "attitude" and stomps her feet, or when Kyle screams at the top of his lungs and throws a tantrum. We only get this opportunity once. I guess I should take back what I said about trying to give Ryder away. Happy Mother's Day.

Happy Mother's Day. I, too, have tried to really soak it all in and not just wish for time to myself today - which was SOOO very tempting.
You are such a wonderful mom. I look at all you do and am amazed!!!!

oh the joys of being mom like being puked on and still wanting time to stand still. I will be praying for many more happy times in your life.
