I still can't believe that I have the privilege of being a MOTHER. Everyday is hard work but every day is more than worth every temper tantrum, every mess, every sleepless night, every week full of endless laundry. Because I get to see my kids growing and learning, I get to hear them say the most precious words I've ever heard "I love you mommy" I get to have the best hugs and kisses imaginable, I get to be looked at with adoration. I love my children so much and my sweetheart Chad for being my partner in this craziness that is parenthood. I am so lucky to have not 1 not 2 but 3 amazing MOTHERS in my life. They give me such great advise, and examples, of what kind of MOTHER I am striving to be. They are all amazing, beautiful women. Thank you so much for all you do. The list is never ending. I hope one day to have the same positive impact on my children's lives that the 3 of you have had on mine. Happy Mother's Day!!! I love you!!
Oh and THANK YOU, Austin and Alyssa (Chad) for my 2 dozen long stemmed red roses, they are absolutely beautiful and I love my cards that you made for me! Thank you for being the best kids ever and being so sweet and always giving me hugs and kisses and telling me how much you love me...I NEED that!!! And THANK YOU to my mom for the hand made by Robyn pillow with Austin and Alyssa's handprints on them, I love the fabric and will cherish those tiny handprints, especially as they grow, I love it!! And THANK YOU Luan for the "Faith" wall hanging and the wooden MOM block set they are both on my mantle. And thank you for the DVD and Book for the kids, we have already watched the DVD and Read the book several times!! Thanks for making me feel important and spoiling me....that feels good sometimes to be spoiled!! You guys are the BEST!!!
Oh and one more thank you...Chad thanks for watching the kids while I went to 3 chick flicks this weekend (What happens in Vegas, Made of Honor, Baby Mama) and for watching my new movie P.S. I Love You with me and not making fun of me while I sobbed through the whole thing!! You are the best hubby any woman could ask for!! And thanks for taking the kids to the instacare on Sunday and holding and comforting Alyssa while she freaked out for her steroid shot (she had croup...again!)
