Last night before going to bed I went into each of my kid's rooms like I do every night. I love seeing them so peaceful and feeling full of peace myself. It is my time to let anything frustrating from the day go and know that we have a fresh start tomorrow. Sometimes the groundhog day-ness of being a stay at home mom wears on me. Cleaning up the same things over and over and over, fighting the same battles day after day, what to make for dinner. I never expected to have such a range of emotions as a mother. Highest of highs and some pretty low lows. I think the strong feelings stem from loving them so much that I get passionate about all that they do and say, who they are. Mother's Day provides me with some time to think about just how lucky I am to be the mother to these sweet kids. Being their mother is my life's work and all said and done I couldn't ask for a more fantastic job.
