Mom’s Day

Mother’s Day! 🙂 I love this holiday.  Today is the day we all celebrate the #1 hardest job ever. I love my munchkins to death. Being a mother is the best thing to every happen to me.  Motherhood is not without its perks. The kisses and snuggles, hugs and smiles make my heart glow. Watching my child accomplish something that they’ve worked hard to do,  is the most rewarding and proud  thing I’ve ever experienced.  It does have its downsides too.

Like a huge crying screaming tantrum in the middle of the library. .. not fun.  Or having the little one attached to your boob in an inconvenient place because she refuses with ever little ounce of her being to take a bottle. But this is my mom motto. “Ya just gotta do it.” Seriously. Don’t complain. Ok I know I do once in awhile,  but that’s my right as a mom. I still do what needs to be done. Whether that’s discipline or praise. Wiping up a yogurt catastrophe or wiping a poopy butt. You do it because you love them. That Playdoh-saster was totally worth the time to clean up. Why?

That is why. You see that smile?  I would do anything for that smile.  I made that smile.  I’m damn proud of that smile.  And that smile will trump any frustration that comes with being a mom.

I also want to give a shout out to my mom.

This beautiful lady is battling cancer,  working full time, cooks,  cleans,  is always up for an adventure, loves a good morning coffee,  and will watch her granddaughters even when she’s exhausted.  She puts up with me going to get house just to use her computer. She’s fine with my munchkins raising her fridge. She spoils them rotten, but teaches them things too. I don’t know if there has been a more amazing woman.  Happy Mother’s Day, Momma. I love you.

I hope everyone will call their mom today, and tell them they love them.  Because that’s the best present us mom’s could EVER get!
