A Mom

Random thoughts on my motherhood…

I love my little Britty. Yes, I call him Britty. I love being his mom. He is such a sweet and loving little boy. He’s so helpful and generous with tender little feelings. He’s funny and inquisitive and quite athletic (I don’t know where he got it.) He helps me stop and just enjoy the little moments when we read a story–preferably his ones about fish or shapes or peek-a-boos.

He definitely knows what he wants–or doesn’t–and lets us know.  But, is also so easy going that we can cart him all over the valley every Saturday and he hardly makes a peep. Doggies get him really excited and he’s thrilled to sign it to us. I love watching him discover something new and try a trick over and over again. When he goes to sleep I love watching his deep, even breathing and will him to wake up so  I can hold him again.

He makes being worn out and having a messy house worth it.

And, I was excited for Mother’s Day because I got to reflect on all of the amazing to be his moms in my life and how there are so many different types of mothers. Thank you to all of the wonderful women in my life who inspire me to be the best mom I can be.

And, as much as I love Brit, I think he’s a bit attached to me too. When he’s hurt or upset or tired he likes to go to me first. To show his appreciation, he got me a movie and a game for the Wii. Mark made a delicious breakfast and dinner and cleaned up almost all the dishes. (Maybe next year he’ll actually help.)

I love my guys. Thanks for making my day so special!
