why did no one ever tell me how great motherhood is and the joy that children bring to your life?
matt and i wanted to travel before having kids, but what i didn't know is that i would much rather travel with them. even though we won't be trekking through europe anytime soon, i'm still excited to take them camping, or to a rangers game, tubing down the guadelupe, seeing the ocean for the first time, snowboarding or seeing their eyes light up the first time they see time square at night....and further down the road, going on cruises, drinking our way through wine country and eating our way through france and italy.
8:30 on a friday night--no where else we'd rather be.
saturday morning snuggles and cartoons.
dancing in the park with this fine young gentleman.
i've said in the past that i had no idea what i wanted to be when i grew up or what purpose my life had, but once i became a mom it all made sense. i want to share life with them. i want to explore and rediscover life through their eyes. i want a simpler life. i want to slow down and take it all in. i want my love to be a verb, an action. i want to collect memories instead of things. i don't want to have a career to have more money, a bigger home or a nicer car. i want to spend my days loving on my children like no one else can.
i feel like it was a big secret about how great being a parent is....so i'm hear to tell you, if you have the opportunity to be a mom, you will not regret it and it will surpass your greatest expectations~or your money back guaranteed :)
i'm making sure my children know how thankful i am to be their mama--no secrets here.
hugs and kisses~m and s
