Happy Mother's Day

Sunday, May 11, 2014

I woke up this morning, looked outside and started singing, "Here comes the sun! Doo doo doo!"  Then I had to laugh because that was totally something my mom did when I was little.  What they say is completely true (no matter how much you may not always want it to be) -- you are your mother.

I probably gave my mom even more white hair and just a few ulcers through my wild teenage years.  But I'm pretty sure I still ended up her favorite.
Just kidding Meg.  
I'm 30 years old and still call my mom when I have questions or need to vent or am bored and want to talk.  I hope when Cohen and Lola grow up they do the same thing when they get older.  I want to be their voice of reason.  Okay, and the cool mom too.



This will be my fourth Mother's Day.  Even though I'm tired, sometimes grumpy and can't go the bathroom alone I truly love being a mom.  These two little stinkers bring so much joy to our lives.  While it's the toughest job in the world, it's also the most fun job in the world.  Everyday is a new challenge that brings on a new beginning.  Being able to watch my kids grow up is the best feeling in the world.



So thank you to my mom for being a great a mom and putting up with me for the past thirty years.  Thanks for setting the stakes high and showing me what it means to be a great mom.


Happy Mother's Day, moms!
Enjoy this day with your family and remember -- you have been chosen to take on the most important role in your life!


Now go put your feet up and get pampered for the day.  You deserve it.
