Gratitude

You have made me...

DSC06128

wonder why stores don't open before your nap time.
more tired than I ever have been in my life.
cry with worry over a fever.
be showered, dressed and out the door in 20 minutes.
laugh out loud until I have had to run to the bathroom.
sing songs in the middle of Target.
dance in our front yard.
love the sound of Elmo's laugh.
watch the best mommy in the world become your grandma.
realize how strong I am.
let go of what I thought was the perfect job.
take on the most important job of my life.
love your daddy more than I thought was humanly possible.
a better person from the inside out.
be the happiest I have ever been.

all because you made me a mommy.

Thank you Deedle, baby girl, Eva-monster...

Happy Mother's Day.
