No guilt necessary. I was actually with my boys on Mother’s Day. The last 2 mother’s days Tim and I have been at the AGM and the boys were being watched by family. It was so nice. I loved it. Mother’s Day should come around more than once a year!
I woke up to a quiet house. The van was gone. I relaxed and read the paper until Tim and the boys came back with breakfast and a “Mommy Flower!” that Michael picked for me.
the rest of the day was spent doing things I wanted to do. We worked in the yard a lot. We are slowly building a retaining wall in the back corner of our backyard. I got a few good hours of work out a Tim with out any complaining! I love Mother’s Day!!!
Ben, Carmen, Zeke, Carmen’s Dad and brother all stopped by for dinner on their way back home. It was fun to see Zeke. I forgot how fast infants change.
It was a good day.
I didn’t choose to be a Mother. I knew eventually I wanted kids, eventually. Tim and I had 2 big VERY big surprises the first 2 years of marriage. I was scared to be a mom. No, make that terrified!
It didn’t come naturally at first, but I feel like in the past almost 3 years I have found my groove. I am confident that Tim and I are doing a good job.
I love it all: the dirty diapers, filling sippy cups 100 times a day, kissing the boo boos, reading stories and everything in between. I never thought this would be my path in life. I am grateful that God pushed my down this path.
I love being at home with the boys and I love getting out and away from the boys. I love where I am at right now in my life. I couldn’t be happier….unless the laundry fairy came and washed, folded and put away the pile of laundry waiting for me!
To all the Mothers out there, especially mine and my Grandma Moo, Happy Mothers Day!
