The Reasons Why...

These girls are the reason why....
I look frazzled
I wear little make-up (and they still think I'm beautiful)
I wake up
I cry
I laugh
I smile
I cook
I clean
I blog (even with lame pictures)
I breathe
I drive all the time
I volunteer
I yell
I whisper
I kiss boo-boos
I kiss messy faces
I hug while they cry
I tickle them to laugh
I am poor $$
I am rich $$$
I am spiritual
I go to Disneyland
I go to the park
I go to the beach (and still wear a bathing suit, brave..I know)
I let them go
I lose my patience
I have a ton of patience
I giggle
I sleep
I have a scar on my tummy
And a heart full of love
These girls are the reason why I LOVE every minute of being a mom!
(P.S. Thanks to my mom for doing all those things for me!! I love you the most!)

I, too, love being a MOM for all the reasons You listed. . . plus,
I love watching my two children as they live the parts of being parents. Sometimes there is lots I could say, but, I am learning (in my advanced years) that somethings are better left unsaid and the best thing I can do is be me and just love them. You are an awesome mom...just ask your girls!
Love ya more,,,,momma-Sue.
