Happy Mother's Day To All!

I know what you're thinking. She's lost it, she's taking pictures of their clothes. Well I was ironing their outfits for baby dedication tomorrow and it just made me appreciate this role that I get to play as Alex and Eli's Mommy. I know that in this day we are supposed to be our own person and we need ME time and all that PC stuff but I think in the life of a Mom there are times when all of that is unrealistic. There are seasons where it is ALL about them and you know what? I still love it. I love ironing their little clothes and even folding them (most of the time). Last year at this time I was about to be heading to baby dedication without my babies. It was Mother's Day and the boys were in the NICU and I was bummed about it. This year I am ironing their outfits. For that I am extremely grateful.

I think as Mom's it is important to attempt to enjoy all of the seasons of our lives. So whether your are in a season where you are thankful for a shower and a fresh t-shirt or you actually get to have a bit of me time once in a while. Enjoy it you are doing a great job! Some day we will all get that much needed me time and we will miss being the center of their little lives. I have to admit I don't always look at things this way (ie last weeks post) but that is motherhood we live and learn and have good days and bad. Today is a good and I hope it is for all of you Mommies!

Thanks boys, for making me a Mommy!
