There is a bit of a trend that I have noticed-
Women either want to give their children a BETTER childhood than they had, or they want to give their children a great childhood because THEIRS was so great.
I am lucky to fall into the latter category.
(A preview of what I am going to look like in 25 years. I am happy with the prognosis, My mama is looking good!)
My childhood is a blur of happiness. Sounds cliché, I know, but there you have it.
Sometimes I just want to crawl back into the warm blanket of my childhood for a day. Back when my biggest complaint was that my mom (gasp!) made me stop reading to unload the silverware.
(why you got to be like that mom?)
Now, I love being a mother to my own children!
I know I complain and whine, but it is true.
Every day, there is no where I would rather be than being a full time mom to my boys.
So, thank you Mom, for all that you have done for me, and for instilling the joy of motherhood in me from an early age. However, you didn’t exactly mention how tired I would be and how many body fluids would be involved….
Thank you to Brian for helping me through all of the unexpected tiredness and body fluids! I couldn’t do it without you!
(My mother’s day cake Brian and Joseph made for me while I was off watching a movie in the theater by myself! Look how proud Joseph looks!) (Also, flushed cheeks = tired boy!)
Thank you Maureen for raising Brian to be the great husband and father that he is today! He is one of a kind, and I know that is due in HUGE part to you!
And thank you to my darling boys for making me a mother!
