I knew I'd be tired in the morning. I knew I would be washing and folding multiple loads of laundry in the morning. But you want to know what, I didn't mind one bit.
This is what being a mommy is all about.
Sure, I would have loved to have slept uninterrupted in my bed last night sleeping in until 7 or 8 this morning. I would have loved to avoided the mess and laundry. But my girl wanted me; she needed me. And although motherhood isn't always glamorous it sure is more than anything I could have ever wished for. To say being a mommy is amazing, gratifying, humbling, life-changing is an understatement. I am beyond blessed to be the mommy to these sweet little peanuts and couldn't imagine life without them.
Mother's Day 2011... nice lazy day with my loves.
To Paul's mom, Cindy -- thank you for raising such a great son! He is an amazing father and husband who I am extremely thankful for. Thank you for welcoming me into your family with open arms. We love and miss you!
And finally to our grandmas -- each of you are so special to us and we are blessed more than words can express to have you at the helm of our families. You are amazing mothers, grandmas and now great grandmas. Thank you for all you are and do. We love you!
Happy Mother's Day to all the amazing moms I know! I hope that today you each had a chance to relax and feel appreciated for all that you do. :)
