One Lucky Mommy

"Of all the things both great and small a mother's love is best of all."

Some things that would make tomorrow a great Mother's Day:
Not being woke up by 5:30am
A shower
No diaper changing
No whining or saying "no"
10 minutes to pluck my eyebrows
Not having to do dishes
In all seriousness I don't care about any of those things. I am just so blessed that I have these two little faces to call me mommy! (Or mum-mum, mama, mom...)

There are so many people out there that would do anything to have a baby to hold. I try to remember this every day and know how truly lucky I am to have 2 beautiful, healthy children! After having kids I can barely remember life before them and I can't even imagine life without them.





Pretty darn lucky.
And so so so blessed!

And tomorrow....I don't care if I get a shower or my eyebrows plucked or have to change every diaper and clean every dish. I just want to make sure that I gets LOTS of hugs and kisses from my babies!
My mom once told me that I would never know how much she loved me until I had children of my own.
Well Mom,
I DO know how much you love me!
And it's pretty amazing.
Thank you.
I love you!
Happy Mother's Day!
Before I Was a Mommy
Before I was a Mommy,
I never tripped over toys
or forgot words to a lullaby.
I didn't worry whether or not
my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunizations.
I had never been puked on.
Pooped on.
Chewed on.
Peed on.
I had complete control
of my mind
and my thoughts.
I slept all night.
I never held down a screaming
child so doctors could do tests.
Or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes
and cried.
I never got gloriously happy
over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night
watching a baby sleep.
I never held a sleeping baby just because
I didn't want to put him down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces
when I couldn't stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small
could affect my life so much.
I never knew that I could love someone so much.
I never knew I would love being a Mommy.
I didn't know the feeling of
having my heart outside my body.
I didn't know how special it could feel
to feed a hungry baby.
I didn't know that bond
between a mother and her child.
I didn't know that something so small
could make me feel so important and happy.
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night
every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never known the warmth,
the joy,
the love,
the heartache,
the wonderment
or the satisfaction of being a Mommy.
I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much,
before I was a Mommy.
