Happy Mother's Day


it's hard to believe that I AM A MOTHER. i know, it seems silly. i should be able to grasp the idea that I HAVE CHILDREN since i do have two of them. um, you'd think it would have set in by now. yes, i spend my days caring for and catering to my two munchkins. and some days it seems that's all i do with not a spare moment for myself (unless you count my shower). anyway, i wouldn't have it any other way. i love being a mom. and each day there are little rewards. like, when i peek in on isla in primary and she's sitting there with her arms folded looking ever-so reverent and giving the naughty girl behind her the stink-eye for being disruptive. seriously, that's my daughter? oh yes, it is. and then i have this 26 pound slugger for an 8 month old son...i have to put him in a stroller to take him anywhere because i feel my back is a precious commodity, oh and i don't like the arm cramps after holding him for 3 minutes. so, there you have it...my two precious gems.

And Happy Mother's Day to all the rest of the mothers out there...to my mom, mother-in-law who take care of me and my family as if i am still their child. and to so many other women in my life who mother and take care of me. to my sisters, kjrsten and keirra, who are the best examples of motherhood and love i could ever hope to be. and to my dearest friends who mother me and take care of my children when i am too casual and laid back to notice that they need something. i love you!

That is one hunk of a baby! I think that you can get your workouts by carrying him. Be glad that you got the reverent kid and not the kid that deserves the stink-eye for being disruptive. I'm sure that you are just as good as a mother as your sisters!
