I’m one of those people who was never really sure I wanted to be a mom. I didn’t have a ‘baby’ doll growing up that I pretended to mother. I didn’t dream of having children to raise (rear…that’s for you…you know who you are). I didn’t picture myself spending all my free time doing arts and crafts or enjoying the finer moments of PBS television.

So, whether I like it or not, I’m a mom.
But, you know what happened? I found out that being a mom is everything I never thought it would be. It is a lot of what I expected…diapers and sleepless nights and never a quiet moment. But it is also, smiles and gurgles and hugs and kisses and little feet that march right into your heart.
I may have never imagined my life as a mother, but now I can’t imagine my life without it.
These boys define my life and give me purpose. I love them and I love being their mom.
