Mother's Day

Here are the three reasons I'm a mother.  I was going to write a "mushy" post about the joys of being a mother...but as I'm typing this...child #2 and I are having a disagreement, and he is mad at me.  :)  Being a mom is hard.  Physically, and emotionally, ....but in the eternal picture of things, it is the most important thing I can do in this life.  I have to remind myself of that often.  Many times I feel like I want to be pursuing other interests of, piano, photography, teaching....but at the end of the day, I know that the few short years I have with them while they are this little is priceless.  I will have many, many years to myself where I can pursue other interests.  But for now, I'm enjoying every second with them.  Even when we're "arguing".
Happy Mother's Day to all my amazing mom friends.  Especially to my mom, and mom-in-law, I'm a lucky girl.
