Being a Mom

In honor of mothers day, I thought I would post some reflections on being a mom:

Baby giggles - never enough!
Twinkle, twinkle, little star sung over and over by 2 year old - too much!
The crazy things you hear yourself saying, like "Don't lick your sister!"
Utter exhaustion.
How any show, commercial, anything having to do with a child in danger has me in tears.
The feel of a limp, sleepy child pressed against you with their arms and legs dangling as you carry them to bed - so precious!
Hearing "I do it!" about 100 times a day.
Impressing yourself with your staggering ability to continue to come up with answers to "why."
Baby and toddler having laughing fits with each other - wonderful!
Amazing love - really, something you just can't even imagine until you have a child.
And the sudden corresponding realization of how much God loves you.

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!
