8 years ago when I became a Mom I read all the books...searched the Internet....asked tons of questions. I was so ready for a baby. The first year had it's ups and downs but Alex was a perfect baby. (she was and I'm not just saying this because she is mine a text book perfect baby! Although trust me, she's making up for lost time now) After all the reading and the questions and the Internet search I was not prepared for how the kids would make me feel. I don't think anything, anyone can prepare you for what happens when you become a Mom. I love Mother's Day...really I probably drive my family nuts in anticipation of it.....but it's not because I want a day all about me (;) although come on it rocks!)....Mother's Day makes me slow down, the normal day stops and I have time to really look at my kids, listen to them a little more, snuggle them more, love them even more. It's a day where I let everything else go and take the time to realize how incredible life is, how incredible it is to be their Mommy. What an honor.

Our life isn't easy, it seems to get harder and more crazy every week.....but I can't imagine life without these 3 beautiful babies. My heart aches when I think about what each one of them has been through, but they are strong, and loving, and kind. Amazing.

Your three kiddos are so lucky to have you as a mommy, Happy Mother's Day to you:)
