I doubt I’m the only mother that feels as if the day her first child was born her entire life changed. When Xander was born I felt as if my life truly began. I still feel that way. There’s an old cliche that goes something like, “You’ll always look back and wonder what your life was like before you had them.” While I definitely remember what life was like before the boys, I can’t imagine going back to that now. I truly love being their momma more than anything else in this world–even chocolate!
For all the other moms out there, Happy Mother’s Day! I hope your babies spoil you rotten, whether that is with extra cuddles, flowers, breakfast, a smile, or a phone call! I wanted to sleep in, but Liam wanted to play so we played–and I don’t regret that at all. I had mentioned a while back something I saw on Pinterest that I loved–instead of a card, one daddy got the Mom a notebook and every year their kids added to the notebook. Well Super Dad had to one-up that idea and got a scrapbook. The boys painted me a picture and had an 8×10 printed of one of my favorite pictures of the boys. Then framed another one of my favorites. Talk about a perfect present for me-pictures and artwork!
