“All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” ― Abraham Lincoln
Before I had my first son, Jackson, I was terrified. I had never even held a baby, let alone feed or change a diaper. But after I had him, it was like a switch had flipped in my brain and everything just came naturally. By the time my husband and I had our second son, Jameson, we felt as if we were experts in child raising. Having children and caring for them has been such a bonding and learning experience for my husband and I. I am so very thankful for all the help I had from my wonderful husband, he is such an amazing father. Being a mother has changed my life forever, and for the best.

Being a mother is the hardest but also the most rewarding job ever. From the time I get up, until I go to bed I am constantly on the go. My sons are 19 months apart so you can imagine what kind of chaos my home stays in. But no matter how frustrated I get with the boys at the end of the day I always find myself smiling at their beautiful, sweet sleeping faces.

Being a mother has also given me a greater appreciation for my own mother. She somehow managed to raise me alone, without any help at all from my father. I have the utmost respect for all single mothers in the world, I really don't know how they do it. But through all the ups and downs of my childhood my mother managed to raise me alone, and shaped me into the a semi-normal, well rounded adult. My mother has always been and always will be my best friend.
My mother and I now.
This year on Mother's Day show your mother how much you love and appreciate them.
Happy Mother's Day to all the mother's, grandmother's, step-mom's, and mother's to be! I hope you all have a wonderful day, you deserve it!
