This has been such a great Mother's Day. Not just for the presents because I have realized SO much the last few weeks about being a mom.
- I LOVE being a mom. I love that a part of me ( and D) is walking around chattering about whatever he chatters and he is a part of us. He is what I always wanted.
- I love being a wife. I am NOT the best at it and I really struggle sometimes. But I LOVE my life with D.
- I realize that I am the mom. I love that. I love ( and hate) that he won't let anyone else do anything for him.( Including the dad) I love that it is ME the mom who is his "Doer"
- I love that my job is him. I would gladly get another one but he is my responsibility. It is my job to take care of him. I stay home so I can be his mom.
A mother is not just someone who gives birth. A mother is someone who nurtures, loves, teaches and cares. That is what I like about having family. There is a mom there for me ( my mom) and a mom for Tyler. Lots of others show love to my child who isn't a mom but they love nurture and care for him.
I think we all want to feel needed, wanted and loved so the more " moms" in our life the more love we feel. Bring on the love!! Its all about family and all about support. Aunt, Grandma, mom.. it is all the same.
Takes a village.... of mothers.
Oh and it takes a gorgeous Vintage pearl necklace from Dallas to make me a Super mom!
