Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day

Okay, I will forewarn you here....I am getting ready to get sappy.... I personally think Moms deserve more credit than one day a year. They should have at least a week, which is barely enough compensation for the 9 months we've spent carrying the said kids inside our bellies. Those 9 months are only the precursor for the next 18+ years of life lessons, nourishment, love, fixing dinners, cleaning scrapes, and so many hugs/kisses.

I love my Mom and my mother-in-law...........

- they both are the reason who I am ....and who Mike is today. Both I would consider one of my friends and confidants. Color me sappy, but Mothers rock hardcore. I realize not all feel the love for their Moms (or like them for that matter), but every Mom deserves a pat on the back today. I owe a ton to my Mom - so I'm cutting this post short to dedicate the day to her since she's dedicated years to me. Be sure to tell your Moms how much they rock because I'm going to call my mom in the AM.

First and foremost, I love being a mother to Will

and Olivia....

I am so thankful that each day I get to spend it with them....One time when I was moping around about this deployment, Mike asked me, "would you rather spend this year away from your kids rather than with them 24/7??" It really made me realize how lucky I am to get to be here with them.

So even when I am going crazy by 8AM, I love being a mom!!

Happy Mother's Day
