I always knew I wanted to be a Mother. I looked forward to cuddling a newborn in my arms, staring into my child's eyes, hearing "mama" for the first time and kissing boo~boos away. The thought of getting up at night, changing diapers and getting peed on occasionally (with 3 boys, it's inevitable!) didn't bother me at all. What I didn't know then was that I would fall in love with each of children. Not the way I fell in love with their Dad but in a way I can't explain with words (if you are a Mom, I am sure you know what I mean). Over the last (almost) 11 years I have realized that being a Mom is both the hardest and most rewarding role I will ever play in my life. It hasn't always been as easy as just kissing the boo~boos away and there have definately been some challenges along the way but being a Mother is best feeling in the world (well, for me it is)!
Thanks to my wonderful husband for making me a Mother, to my Mom for showing me the way it's done and to my 3 little men for being the 3 biggest accomplishments of my life!
We wish all the Mothers reading this a very happy Mother's Day!
