Mother's Day '07


WHY I LOVE being a MOM:

Besides EVERYTHING,
*little smiles that brighten my day
*hugs for no reason
*little notes left under my pillow
*being asked questions I can't always answer, and no one's grading the questions that are
*the sound of singing from the backseats of my car
*choosing who's the boss of who
*being asked, "will you make this for dinner tomorrow too?"
(Unfortunately J said no more leftovers the day he graduated from dental school!)
*loads of laundry~ colors, darks, whites, & PINKS!
*getting what i hoped for for Mother's Day~ a new heart rate monitor with a GPS so I can map where i've gone, speed, elevation, calories, etc. that downloads info to my computer. Too bad that doesn't make you any faster, but definately cooler! Actually J says nerdier. HA! Look out, we'll see what he says after some training with it!
*making school lunches and every once in awile putting a bag of treats in it to share with her friends at school
*"planning" birthday parties months, even years in advance. I think we have Camille's next 5 parties planned.
*having other moms as friends and trying to be like them!

AND the reasons go on and on!!
What a BLESSING to be a MOM!
