Mother's Day

As I sit down to write about Mother's Day I've already changed 3 diapers, cleaned up a puddle of pee, unloaded and loaded the dishwasher, wiped up at least 10 pools of spit up, made a meal for 5, gave hugs, wiped tears, washed 2 loads of laundry, and said a few prayers for patience.

And it's not even 9 am.

I probably couldn't be paid enough to do this in any other setting, but all the money in the world couldn't take me away from doing what I do as a mother.

I think that's worth celebrating!

This Mother's Day we invited over a few dear friends, ate some great food and enjoyed one of the first days of spring (so overdue!). With a little help from Dave, Tillie Rose picked some flowers for the table and made me my first ever Mother's day card.

This is how most family pictures go these days--we start out with great intentions, and end up with one of us laughing and usually one of the babies crying.

Who would have thought last year (when there was only 1 child between the 3 of us) that just a year later there would be 5?

Times have changed from last year--from a mom to Tillie Rose to a mom of three! I'm so grateful that my experience with motherhood so far has included a supporting husband, some great friends that I get to learn from and experience motherhood with, and 3 angel girls that drive me to my knees both to thank God for the opportunity, and to ask for help so that it doesn't eventually drive me crazy! It's so much work, but such an honor, to be a mom.

Happy Mother's Day!
