Mother's Day

Mom, Mama, Mommy~ There may be some days that I feel like those words are the only words my kids know how to say (especially Bryn). And although Mother's Day is typically like every other day it's nice to have a day dedicated to us moms. I did get to sleep in this morning, but the rest of the day was pretty typical. I changed diapers, yelled at the kids :), bribed the kids to eat dinner, wrestled the kids in church, fixed the kids lunch, did a few loads of laundry, picked up toys and went to dinner with family. But I am so grateful for both my kids. One day my house will be totally clean. One day I won't have toys in my living room. One day I won't have diapers to change. One day we will eat peacefully without anyone complaining. So I am going to try to live in the moment more often because one day before I know it my kids will be gone and I will be wishing for typical days just like today. I can't believe how fast my kids are growing up. I have done things for them that I never thought in my life I would do. Sometimes it is hard to live in the moment because you just can't wait for the whiney stage to be over. Then another stage comes. I find myself wishing....someday!! I try to remember the country song, "you're gonna miss this!" Somedays are easier than others. But I am grateful for the 2 little munchkins that gave me the name Mom! I love them so much!
