As mothers sometimes we get stepped on, puked on, peed on, pooped on, toes ran over by bike/scooter tires (yes, its true), things spilled on us and an occasional slap in the face by kids while all are in my bed. We have to know how to pitch a baseball, duct tape a wiffle ball back together, dress barbies, Polly Pockets, listen to Dora the Explorer over and over, watch ESPN, know who all the Astro players are and some stats and Band-Aid all boo-boos.
And of course, my favorite days are the days when we get hugged, kissed, snuggled, told we are loved, an occasional "thanks, Mom" and you are special mom and a "here are some flowers I picked just for you".
I love being a mom. It is one of the greatest joys of my life. I never knew that being a mom could be so rewarding. My kids are my life, and as God planned, my responsiblity. Yikes...thats scary! HA Being in charge of someones little soul is sometimes more than I can bear but with lots of prayer and God's help, I might make it through. :) My children are a blessing...they make me strive to be a better christian, a better mom, and better wife....I love them so much.
I am the mom I am today because my Mom loves me and my siblings so much. She always has showed us that unconditional love that I hope I show my children. I know for a fact that I gave her a few gray hairs. I better not rehash my teenage years. I don't know what came over me! HAHA But, I think that's normal. I hope. I'm sure I will get back what I deserve. :)
