Because motherhood will never be a perfect science


on April 25, 2012

Is it weird that I still have moments of “Wow, I’m a Mom!”?

When I look at my kids playing and discovering new things, I’m full of fascination and tears; happy ones of course; melancholy ones too, because I see how fast time passes. Diva girl thinks she’s more sophisticated than her 5 years and Baby girl tries to do everything her big sister does. They dance and laugh; they sing and pretend; they argue and defy all the while growing and learning and loving each other.

I pretend to be stern at times when a smile threatens to spread over my face. I watch them silently and openly as they tear the house apart; fight like cat and dog then kiss and hug and become friends again.

I remember when I wondered if I’d ever have kids. Now, I can’t even believe that they were never here!

They give me joy, they give me reason to worry, they make me crazy and then I start yelling.

But at the end of the day, we pray, we hug, we kiss and when they finally fall asleep….

I say to myself “Wow! These are my babies….I’m a Mom!”


One response to “WOW!
