Being a Mother means to me that:
The best days of my life are when my boys were born, and that will never change.
I have new found respect for my Mom. I am really appreciative for her letting me live past the age of five (totally stealing this from Holly's FB status)!
While they annoy me sometimes, I really do believe that my children are perfect.
I heart baby butts! (This is probably universal, though.)
I love even the simple strange things about my children,
I will be in a constant state of worry for the rest of my life. There will never be a time in which I am completely at ease.
I will always struggle to get a picture of the kids smiling together.
I will unconditionally love my children forever. I used to ask my Mom if she would love me forever, even if I did something really, really awful, and she told me yes, always she would love me. Now I know she was telling the truth.
I am no longer repulsed by poopy diapers. Now I am just annoyed by them.
I appreciate all of the little luxuries in life.... like pooping with the door closed. Really.
I am in a constant state of me vs. the children. We all have needs and sometime I have to weigh the options because they never correspond to each other. Guess what? I almost always lose.
Sleep was WAY underrated before I had children. How I miss it so!
I will never take a vacation without my children and not think about them and miss them terribly.
I want my children to grow up right now, yet stay little forever.
The years are flying by. This makes me sad, although I do always wish for the week to go by quickly.
I am SO jealous of stay at home moms, yet I know I would be stir crazy and frustrated if I was one.
I have unconditional respect for Mothers everywhere. I know that there is no right way of parenting and the most important thing is to love your children unconditionally.
On that note.....
Happy Mother's Day Everyone! If you are a Mom, please take the time out to pamper yourself, even if it's just for a minute. As for me? Well my children took 4 poops so far collectively and I have not wiped a single butt! It's a good day! Gotta love Mr. Bee.
