Happy Mother’s Day!

Dear Son,

Today is Mother’s Day which I’m sure means absolutely nothing to you at this point but one day Daddy will hand over the reins to you and it will be your turn to shower me in gifts, meals, and the chance to sleep in. Remember, I gave you life.

But, for now I’m going to take this time to reflect on what a joy it has been over the last year and a half being your Mommy. I have never had a job more challenging, rewarding and downright funny and I’ve loved {almost} every day of it.

Ok, your milk stays on your tray for the 120,448,098th time. There’s going to be a point very soon where I’m not going to be able to get back up again from cleaning it up.  

You have taught me so much about what is important in life and how to enjoy the simple things and not sweat the small stuff that gets thrown at us.

How, I mean how is there Cheese Whiz on a dress that I have had on for exactly seven minutes? 

You have such a way of making me laugh and looking into your big blue eyes makes me wonder how I ever lived without you, and also what you’re plotting.

Oh my word if you knock over that bar stool one more time I think it’s going to go through the floor.  

As much as I try to hold on to the special moments – like the occasional time you keep still enough for a snuggle – I also look forward to watching you grow up and am eager to see the person you will become. You have made me a better person and for that I thank you, I also thank you for letting me write this with almost no interruptions.

Why is there a grape in my shoe? 

Happy Mother’s day my little boy.

Love Mommy,
