Every morning I wake up and look forward to hearing my name.
Zoe: "Mom! Dad? Out!"
I hear Max over the baby monitor talking to a stuffed animal, his blanket, or just talking to the ceiling.
Every morning I wake up and look forward to being a mom.
I can't help but notice that this generation of mothers are not the same as my mom.
Mom had six kids and we went everywhere with her. If grocery shopping needed to be done, all six of us kids tagged along. If Mom had to run by the bank or drop something off for Dad, all six of us were there in the back seat.
I have some great memories of my Mom. She was the best -- and I'm not just saying that, I mean it whole heartedly.
Other moms have harder time relating to me because I'm a lot like my Mom was -- my kids come with me everywhere I go. Yes it may be a little hectic, but that's what I signed up for when I decided to take this position, and God has given me the patience and thankfulness for my slower walkers!
I hope one day my kids will have great memories with me like I did with my Mom. I do my best everyday!
I do not want any mothers to feel offended by my remarks. I am not being judgemental towards anyone and how they raise their children. I'm just stating who I am and how I feel about myself! Thanks!
