10 Things My Children Have Given Me:
I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day. I can honestly say that yesterday’s was the best yet. I mean who wouldn’t love a 4 course breakfast of waffles,eggs,toast, AND Coco Puffs???? Thankfully Brandon oversaw the breakfast making so I didn’t end up with jam,honey,and cinnamon in my coffee this year.(True Story and ya gotta give the kid points for imagination.)
The best part of my day though was honestly all the beautiful cards and gifts the kids made for me. I was bawling and it took me a minute to compose myself after watching this from Kenna:
The card Trin gave me was amazingly written out and from her own words. I won’t go into too much detail but let me just say…it was a wonderful surprise from my bonus daughter that I never in a million years expected.
But enough about Mother’s Day…well kinda! It’s time for Stasha’s Monday Listicles and this week it is:
LIST OF 10 MOTHERHOOD GAVE ME
1. A sense of finally knowing what I was meant to be in this world.
2. Endless hours of laughter.
3.The chance to brag that if giving birth was an Olympic Sport I’d take a gold…or at least a silver.
4.Patience I never knew I had.
5.The right to forget things and then be able to blame it on mother brain instead of the cat.
6.My love for Teen Titans and the rebirth of my love for any other comic book hero I had lost.
7. The chance to fulfill my dream of homeschooling
8.Being able to share with my own mother the things she never got to experience,ultrasounds,the whole birthing experience.
9.More hugs and kisses then I could ever imagine.
10 And finally a strength to fight for my children and the childhood they deserve.
It’s true what they say…Being a Mother is the toughest job you’ll ever love.
