Mother's Day reminds me how blessed I am

You know when I first found out that I was pregnant I did not know what to expect, I mean for most of my life all I really wanted to be was to be a mom.  I can remember a conversation with my grandpa where I told him how I did not think college was for me and that I knew someday I would be a mom and wanted to stay at home.  Well about 3 years later after that conversation my wish came true and I would never want it any other way.  Now at the current time I do not get to stay at home but we are working (for – remove) hard to get me back home!  Being a mom has taught me so many wonderful things about myself; although not all the time did I think they were all wonderful.  I have 3 amazing boys in my life and they bless me everyday and I feel so lucky to be the wife of one and the mother to the other two.  Now there are days I feel like I could probably pull all my hair out but when I hear just 4 words it is all wiped away…I LOVE YOU MOMMY!!! 
Poor Caleb had to be the little guinea pig while I tried to work out all of my issues and then come to find I will work on those for the rest of my life.  I don’t want to sound like every thing is perfect in our family, but I do feel so blessed.  Sometimes I wonder if this is really the life I am living!  Well I hope all you mothers out there had a great Mother’s Day and even if you are not a mom yet I pray you still had a great day!

If you do not mind I would love to tell you a bit about my weekend.  It started on Friday; I rushed home to try to make my self look decent for my date night with my hubby!  We went to one of my favorite restaurants…The Melting Pot and it was so yummy!  We went with some great friends so that made for some great birthday memories! Anyone who knows me would be very proud to know that I ate a bite of lobster and part of a strawberry…yes I said strawberry and can say that I still do not care for either one. J

Well Saturday Josh took the boys out for a daddy day! I just love that he is such a great father to them, I hope they grow up to be half the man that Joshua is.  Anywho so what would any girl do when she has about 3 hours of time to herself…watch a chick flick, take a long bath, paint my nails no rather I spent the entire 3 hours cleaning!  I put away winter clothes and went through some of my own clothes to toss out.  We went to the pond while daddy had to go to work for a little while, where Caleb jumped into the pond went all the way under and popped back up! He was very proud of himself…mommy was a tad nervous and well you should ask his uncle who was in the water with him how nervous he was J
Sunday morning the boys surprised me and when I say surprised I actually mean Taylor kept trying to tell me what I got and the kind of card I got J My favorite thing was Josh let the boys pick out my mother’s day card and well they decided to get me a birthday Avatar singing card!  I loved it because it is what they picked out J Oh and I finally got my flower from Taylor that he had been telling me about since last Thursday.  My 3 boys did the cleaning that I did not get to on Saturday and Josh’s dad and sister cooked an awesome dinner!  All the boys helped clean off the table.  So yes I can say I had a wonderful, amazing, blessed day!!!

Awe...that is sweet...When I saw you went to the Melting Pot (tad bit jealous) my first thought was I bet you ate meat, cheese, choclate, bread, and cake. But didn't eat the strawberries. :) LOL, at least you tried one :)

BTW, at a BIG bowl of strawberries yesterday .. so yummy!
