So today was my first Mother's Day. It was really kind of like any other day except we woke up in Tennessee (where my husband's mom lives) and made the treck back home and then had my sisters and mom over for pizza and spending time together. Mostly today I just reflected a lot on how great it is to be a mother to my wonderful little girl and being married to her awesome Daddy! As a Mom, you sacrifice a lot of time and energy just to try to make everything in your little one's life perfect and maybe just that much better than your own life. Sometimes it can be difficult to manage your time and you can't do things as freely as you used to but it is worth every single sacrifice, every single one. I couldn't imagine my life without my little girl and I just adore every inch of her. When I go in her room and she is standing in her crib with that little grin on her face I just can't explain the feeling of happiness that I get when I see her.
Before we all ate dinner we filled up the little baby plastic pool we have and put the girls in it. The girls meaning Lexie (my 10 month old) and Kaylee (her 2 year old cousin). That was the event of the evening really. Just watching them sit in the pool and play with little toys and take them from each other lol. Oh the little things now that entertain us, there is nothing better!
WEll, I could go on and on about how much I love my child and how great it is being a mom but I am sure all Moms out there know the feeling. Happy Mother's Day to all mommies out there. We do the best we can to make our little one's happy! I am thankful to my Mom for putting up with me and my sisters as crazy as we were! haha
Night night. Tomorrow I must work off these past 2 days of not eating so great! Whoopsies!
