Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day.  Today began by heading to bed last night with a headache and waking up around 4 with a full-on migraine.  I was out of migraine medicine and not even sure whether it was pure sinus or mostly migraine.  Daddy-O had been in and out all night taking call-ins for work.  So I headed downstairs to take some tylenol and try to sleep on the sofa (to no avail).  Supergirl woke up around 6ish and headed downstairs to hang out with me.  At 7 the two of us headed to Walgreens to pick up my prescription refill.  At this point I was beginning to really feel sorry for myself and thinking the best way to spend the day is to stay in bed, alone, all day.  However, two housr later I was feeling completely better (thank goodness for imitrex) and ready to start the day.

My kids were so incredibly well behaved and wonderful today.  All day I just kept thinking about motherhood.  What an incredible privilege this is.  I remember before I was a mother, how much I wanted to become one, and how little I knew about how much it would change me.  Becoming a mother changed the way I feel about my mother.  I understand how much she loves me and all the sacrifices she made for me.  All that I did not appreciate before.  I have this new bond with her, and I am so thankful for that.

I am also so thankful for my children.  How incredibly awesome are they.  And how lucky am I to be able to be here to watch them grow.  To watch Supergirl as she learns about the world, forms her own friendships, and becomes so confident and independent.  To watch Boomer as he has formed such a strong attachment and trust in us, as he learns to talk (he has learned SO many words lately), and to watch his daily adventures.  He is definitely not one to sit and let life pass him by.  I can’t imagine a better job. I really can’t.  I tend to get caught up in the daily grind and really feel sorry for myself with how busy and stressed we are.  But seriously, life could not be much better.  I love my children more than I ever thought possible.  There is no doubt they have both changed my life and I will cherish every moment as they grow.  I am just so so thankful.

And today my heart is also with Boomer’s birth mother.  She is a part of us.  I pray she is healthy and safe and smoehow has the knowledge in her heart that he is ok, that he is loved and healthy and safe.

    Happy Mother’s Day mamma. Your kids are amazing and they are a testament to the people that you and Daddy-O are. Motherhood is really the best and I can’t for a second imagine not being one.

    If I wasn’t a mom–I would never have met you and many other amazing women. I am so lucky.
