I awoke this morning to the sound of my 7 year old "whispering" loudly,"Happy Mother's Day!" I slowly opened my eyes and found myself staring into my husband's eyes, except they were on this tiny face with a big smile full of missing teeth. Next my 5 year old daughter was inches from my face then came my 6 year old twins. Soon all of them are bouncing all around my husband and I on our queen size mattress. I KNEW at that moment why I never wanted a water bed. I got to open my school made gift with a drawing of me and what my child thought I did when I was little and why I am the best mom. I looked at all their faces and just drunk in all the similarities and differences. I didn't see my 12 year old till I finally got out of the bed. She sleepily said, "Happy Mothers Day." Then she went to make me breakfast. It has been a while since my breakfast came in the shape of a smiley face. It won't last forever and that makes me sad. Being a mom is the BEST and HARDEST job I have ever had! But I wouldn't trade it for anything! Yesterday I actually took my kids on a photoshoot and here they are!
All my children!
Happy Mother's Day Everyone!
