I'm so glad I'm a Mom. These four kid-o's are the best! Just now as I'm writing this Quinna comes down and says, "Mom, I love you the best..all the way to the moon and to Nana's house." Of course she is supposed to be in bed right now but with words like that how can I get mad. As great at is it now; I'm really looking forward to the Mothers Days when I don't have to clean up, cook or listen to them fight! I know that that time will come way too fast though. (Well, I don't know about the fighting part,) So I will try and cherish their messes now. Okay...maybe not cherish the messes but be more patient.
I'm so grateful for my Mom and her diligence and hard work. (And I'm glad she answers her phone when I'm in need of a recipe. :) She has taught me the best and most important things that I can teach to my own kids. And my 5 sisters are great examples. They each do their own unique things with their mommy skills that help me figure out ways to improve mine.
One of the best things for me, about being a Mom is the knowledge I have of my role as a wife and mother. No matter how hard, tiring, or frustrating it gets sometimes...I know I am doing the most important thing on this earth. These wonderful babies are Heavenly Fathers children...and I will do everything I can to help them know who they are.
