I want to be in all senses of the words, All. Things. Mama.
As far back as I can remember I've wanted to be a mom, not just any mom, but the mom that stays home with her kids full time. The mom who loves even when she is not loved back, who can't breathe without thinking of her kids first. The mom who loves teaching, playing, cooking, baking, laughing, and kissing owies. The mom who is ALL THINGS MAMA. My husband and I scrimp so that dream can be fulfilled. Being a mom is not part time for me. It is something that has captured my heart. All of the going ons of my life start with thoughts of my kids. My kids consume my love and my life and I allow it because, with God's help they are the essence of what makes me a mother. This is me...

daydreams about napping...

Highlights to my day so far:
1.) Both kids up at 4:30 am
2.) Throw up on the couch
3.) Everyone back in bed at 5:30am :)
4.) Bible Study
5.) Putting the kids down for naps and finding them both in Easton's crib awake a half hour later
6.) Easton's new sailor arm dance move whenever he hears Christmas music
7.) Knowing an eggnog latte is making it's way home to me by way of my husband
8.) Calling friends to get some adult conversation in the mix! (Thanks Aili and Skyelynn)
9.) Easton saying "uh oh" every time the show I'm watching switches to a commercial
10.) Wishing for a nap but never taking one
Here's to all the mom's who have a list of "highlights" a lot like this one!
