This is what I mean...I can't always please them ALL..look
at the boys...one very too happy son..and one NOT so happy son
...look at MOM still smiling:) ha ha...
This is ME and my MOM...still love ya
even tho you dressed me like I belong on
"Little house on the Prairie" ......horrible:)
My brother's Scott and Kevin...you did good Mom:)
Just don't cut our hair EVER again:)
One of my favorite people in the world..
even tho she is my "Mother-in-law"..she
is like a sister/bestfriend...I love her so much:)
I would NOT trade this for the world...my children/my life
We Mother's all know that it isn't always an easy job...it is the second (after marriage) hardest thing in life...we want the BEST for our children and everyday we try and try to be the BEST Mom possible...I am learning as my children are getting older and there are 4, it is so hard to please them all!! I give and give myself and lose myself just so they will be happy! I am starting FINALLY learning it is Ok to say NO (they will still love me)...balance is the key..I am still not there yet..but getting closer...Somedays I want to throw the towel in and say I don't want to be a Mom anymore..it gets so hard at times..but that thought last for a second....WHAT OR WHO would I be without THEM???
Other Mom's look at me and ask me "how I do it all" it is the same with ANY Mom...you just DO...I have my UPS and DOWNS like anyone else out there:) I get inspired by other Mom's....I relate to other Mom's...I learn from other Mom's....but at the end of the day we are all the same no matter how many kids we have!!!
To be honest I never imagined myself with 4 kids,,,and if I could turn back the clocks I wouldn't have had 4...BUT with that being said (and probably not right to say) the KIDS I do have now I wouldn't trade them for NOTHING!! I was blessed with amazing, smart, caring, generous, well mannered, athletic, mouthy:) energetic, happy, loving kids!! They make me who I am today..Their is NO BOND stronger than the bond from a Mother and a child....they are going to LOVE you no matter if you are grumpy or happy!! Thank you Todd and God for these awesome kids!!!
It is funny as you grow up as a child, certain things your Mother did or said when you were little you said at the time "I will never turn into "My Mother" ...nothing against my Mom...but as a child you really don't think your OWN Mom is cool...Well I at times have TURNED INTO MY MOM:)....uuugggg I sound just like her!! But I turned out pretty damn good...Thank you Mom for being awesome..for being my teacher...being my hero....being my biggest supporter...giving me endless love...showing me the way to be the Mom I am today!!! Love you with all my heart!!
Happy Mother's Day to all you beautiful soul Mother's out there...and remember when it gets tough...hang in there as "they" will become us someday:) scary but TRUE......Love and hug your children as they are molding us into who we are today "damn good MOM'S"
