Occasionally, but probably not often enough….in between the trappings of everyday ‘Mommy Life’ , I find myself in awe of my children.
They are these two perfect little beings. They run and jump, talk and laugh, cry and assert these amazing little personalities. And Jeff and I actually created them. They are truly little people. It is such a tremendous honor, and, well, responsibility.
Most days, it is easy to get caught up in the routine of it all. It is almost as though they have always been here…always been a part of my life. In a way, I guess they have. But, lost in the day to day – the feedings, and driving around, the car seats and toddler whining, the ‘what’s for dinner?’ and the newly discovered sibling fights, it is easy to lose sight of the true spectacular nature of their existence.
Today, I will focus on the awe. Today, I will drink in every little phrase, every tackle, every hug, and of course, all the ‘kishes’. Today, I will relish the responsibility of being Mommy (probably my favorite title). I will celebrate the amazing.
