I love being a MOM! I was recently trying to remember the best mothers day I have had thus far and I think it was my first because I was finally a mom. Being a mom is the hardest job I have ever had but yet it is the most rewarding! Aleecia is at the age where one minute she tries to challenge my authority and then the next she is asking me if she can help me make dinner and saying funny things like "ya, why not." Mia is at the age where she thinks everything is hers and screams for what she wants. Then she brings you a book and says "read" or gives you a kiss on each cheek and gives you a big hug.
This year for Mothers Day David and the girls took me out to eat. Aleecia made me a big picture at school that said her mother was awesome, cute, happy, and fun. Aleecia also gave me a big hug and kiss. We went to home depot to their kids workshop and the girls built flower pot holders. We took them home and they painted them and gave them to their grandmas for mothers day. They were so sweet all painted I almost selfishly kept them for myself.
