Being a mother is the best thing that ever happened to me! I know my last post was all about a crazy outing that wasn't so easy/fun at times but that's part of what I love about motherhood. It pushes you to be a better person- it changes the way you see people- it humbles you. More than that you learn to laugh at spilt milk (you really learn to laugh at a lot of things!), or to not freak when you get pooped on at church. When each of my boys were born ALL I thought was how perfect they were (and are). Being a mom has taught me how beautiful life is- how beautiful everyone is! I can get nit-picky at myself but since I've become a mom, little things that used to bug me don't matter anymore. Being a mom has helped me grow up. It has taught me what really matters in life. I'm so grateful for my kids- they bring me more happiness than I ever dreamed. Sure parenting can be tiring and difficult at times but really, when you add it all up it is oh so rewarding and beautiful.
