Happy Mother's Day!

I wanted to write a long post about how lucky I am to be the mother of these amazing wee ones. I really feel so blessed to be their mother. I have been so busy being their mother lately that it leaves little time for anything else including the blog. I have let down some friends and family by not updating as much as I used to. After waking them each morning, surviving the morning routine with only time for 1 cup of coffee, getting everyone where we need to be in the morning and being no more than 10 minutes late, working two jobs, picking everyone up at night usually on time, completing homework, cooking dinner or in all reality driving through a drive through, getting them bathed and their teeth brushed, saying prayers and tucking them in each night, well there isn't much time for anything else. We do manage to work in time to make it to dance classes, to play outside on pretty days, to sing and dance around the house, to read, read and read, to be silly and to laugh a little each day. I have taken many pictures since my last post but only have time to post this one. It is the best of the last weeks. I took it of my wee ones as we went on a short hike with my Mom. Yes, I got to share this mother's day with my Mom who flew in last night. We live so far apart that it is rare that we get to spend this day together. I often receive compliments about the type of mother that I am and I can only reply that I learned from the best. In the book, The Last Lecture, the author talks about how he won the 'parent lottery'. I won the same lottery. I hope that one day my kids will stay the same. It took a lot of love, patience and sticky notes (constant daily reminders of what not to forget) to raise me. Thank God she had an endless supply of those sticky notes! Happy Mother's Day Mom!
