What This Mama Loves The Most

First and foremost, too all the moms out there...Happy Mother's Day!

What does being a mom mean to me? Patience, understanding, caring, sometimes even a bit of frustration. But most of all it means unconditional love forever. I was so amazed at how fast I fell deeply in love with both my munchkins the second they were laid in my arms for the first time in the hospital. I didn't grow up around a lot of little kids, I was an only child. I was worried I wouldn't "get it." How wrong I was. I can honestly say I never understood unconditional love until these two came into my life.

My munchkin, my oldest, my boy... He is 100% little boy, scares me to death on a regular basis with his dare-devil antics and his willingness to go all out in an instant. Wow, he has taught this mama about a lot of things over the years: Transformers, Star Wars, falling and always getting back up, but mostly that boys (men) have such strong emotions as well, they are just as caring as a woman, well... when they want to be :)

My princess, my baby-girl, my drama queen... she is a girly girl to the core. I never knew someone could own so many dresses! All that patience I mentioned earlier? Yeah, I learned that from dealing with her, ha ha. She can bring the drama for sure. But she als has such a sweet softer side that I am blessed to see often. She has taught me about loving diamonds, spinning with a big skirt on, Dora The Explorer, but mostly that we are all human. We hurt sometimes and we need to reach out and ask for help, someone will always be there to hold your hand.

On this mother's day I hope you reflect back on what your kids have taught you. You'd be surprised what you've learned over the years, I know I was :) Have a great day!

Ta Ta for now
