At Reagan and Ethan's well child exam's the doctor kind of chuckled when he looked in Ethan's ear. He looked at me with a crooked grin and said, "He has a little white bead in his ear, and it's been there a while....the skin has grown over it." Sitting there holding him while the doctor dislodged the bead I thought...."Mother of the Year....I think NOT." Heh.
Later that same day, a moment of redemption. Reagan read her first book. Not at preschool, not at Kindergarten, but at home. I don't believe in pushing kids to read, so Reagan has done this all on her own. She read book #1 (Mat) and book #2 (Sam) from the Bob Books series.
Talk about flying HIGH. That's about as good as it gets Ladies and Gentlemen.Supermom...to my kids, probably.
We all have the capability of being supermoms on a daily basis. The number of children we have makes no difference in what kind of a parent we are...just how many gray hairs we have! For myself, today I am admiting to the world...I AM a GREAT mom. My kids are happy, healthy, thriving, READING, and we survived a year of triplets.
Josh and I have gone on this journey alone, and WE are happy and thriving. Sure, we would love more alone time...but we will have years and years and years of time to ourselves when our house is empty and quiet in 20 years. We will still be young (in our 50's), and I will guarantee you one thing....
We will desperately miss the noise of children.
So. Here's to us SUPERMOM's. May we enjoy the noise for today, because while it may drive us crazy now....it won't last forever. The future will be filled with quiet days where we long for the "noise" of our youth.
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
