Happy Mother's Day

Sunday, May 9, 2010
It was a great one for me - some extra time to rise at my own will, some extra time to primp after a shower, a fun new toy (cricut crafting machine), great homemade cards and class projects from the kids and nonstop hugs and kisses!  SO great!

I think one of the characteristics of parenthood that is so unique is this paradox: As a mom I think about how nice it would be to have an uninterrupted shower and getting-ready session.  Then, as in today, when I have it, I find the quiet deafening!  What could they possibly be doing?  And I want to be a part of it!  Or tonight, when we put them to bed as they so MAJORLY needed, I put on my pajamas and think about morning and how I can't wait to see them again in the morning.  It's truly unique and unparalleled.  And it's what I love about being a mom!

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all moms and all those celebrating their moms!

And what kind of mom would I be without sharing this picture of Will at school Thursday SUPER pumped about being a part of their "summer birthday" celebration!

I am feeling ya on the deafening silence! I find that I'm lonely even doing the grocery shopping by myself because there is no one to talk to...and I wonder what fun I'm missing...and yet it takes like a 1/4th of the time.
