How was everyone’s Mother’s Day Weekend? I had a great weekend hanging out with just my two boys, it is just what I needed.
I love my mom and the older I get the more I appreciate her. I think at a certain age everyone goes through a ‘I don’t need my parents phase’ but becoming a mom makes me appreciate what my mom did for me and my other siblings. When I moved away from home at 19, I was 350 miles from my mom and trying to make it on my own. I was, and still am, very independent and didn’t want help when I left Dallas. I don’t think I talked to my mom that much, I was just working and living my life. Now at the age of 37 I think I call my mom EVERYDAY just to tell her how my day went. It is funny how life can change like that, growing up we want to be so independent but the older we get the more we just need our mom. My mom is my best friend, a great listener, she never judges me no matter what mistakes I make in life because she knows I am learning from those. She is who I call when I’m having a bad day or have happy news to share. She supports me in pursuing my dreams. She is a great example of a mother and I strive to be like her every day. I love you mom and thank you for everything you’ve done and still do. I hope you had the best Mother’s day but really I hope you know how proud I am to be your daughter every day!
I hope that my kids know that I love them, even when they are fighting and I want to pull my hair out, they are my everything and I would do anything for them. Being a mom is tough because we want to raise the best humans we possibly can. And to be proud of them when they grow up. Moms, be proud of the job you are doing. Some days I wonder if I am doing the right things, actually I think I question myself daily. BUT WE ARE ALL DOING GREAT! Don’t stress over stuff you can’t fix or didn’t go as planned, change your attitude towards it and laugh it off/move on. It is funny how kids don’t remember what didn’t go right they remember our reactions to it. Sometimes we just have to go with the flow, which isn’t always what we want, but we adjust and that is what makes us GREAT moms.
I’m proud that these two boys call me Mom.
Happy Mother’s Day!
