Mothers Day

I am so blessed as a mother.
Thanks Kristen for your tip! Alex emailed Travis saying he thought it would be a great gift! ;) I was shocked he went for it! Thanks Babe, you are the best!!

Like this cards says inside ..."living the dream, baby!"
too funny! cause this will be me this summer!
but in all seriousness, I do feel like I am living my dream.

This was my card from Travis.

"Your next diaper order has arrived."
Funny, but yet again, oh so true! (sigh)

We had a great mothers day...Travis took Alex to the park for a little while to give me some "quiet time" and we hung out together at the house the rest of the day. I was torn between wanting family time and alone time.

The other day I realized that I am such a mom...
I noticed the new lights they installed at HEB in the freezer section (and I was excited about them enough to point them out to Travis, he was impressed with my grocery store knowledge)
I also fished a rubber band out of my kids ear. yowza.

A blog that I follow had this post- Love it! Even though her kids are older than mine, I can relate. And I couldn't have said it better myself.
This is one of my favorite quotes from it...Motherhood...It gives you the ability to remember all the words to "Hush Little Baby" and "You are my sunshine" but forget where you put your car keys 3 minutes ago.
Some of her key phrases... Motherhood is full of conflicts. Motherhood likes to befriend worry. Motherhood is about sacrifice. Motherhood is fun. And Motherhood is a gift.

I am also so blessed to have an amazing mother and mother in law. I am surrounded by amazing mothers as friends and family also. What great inspiration and role models to help me be the best mom I can be. Hope you all had a wonderful Mothers Day!
