to my mother


I'm not sure you'll ever know how much I appreciate you.  I know I say thank you, but you take a lot of shit from me too.  So I don't think you can every truly understand just how lucky I feel to have you in my life.  You are one of a kind.  You are selfless.  You do so much more for me than you need to.

No doubt I wouldn't have survived these first three months of Elsie's life without you.  Well, I maybe would have survived, but it wouldn't have been pretty.  You've stepped in for me, giving Ryann the love and attention she was craving when I just couldn't give it.  You've picked up the slack where I was lacking elsewhere.  Without you around, I'm fairly confident I would have slumped into a depression.  You have been the best shoulder to lean on.  I can never ever thank you enough for that.

Thank you for raising me to be the woman I am.  And the mother I am.  You mean the world to me.  Even when my words and actions don't show it, know that I am so incredibly grateful that you are my mother.  I love you.

Happy Mother's Day.

please excuse Ryann's awkwardness :o)

I love your blog, haha I know everyone must say that, but I do. It is so sweet and loving and candid. It makes me happy and not feel alone. I have a 3 yr old little boy and a 18 mon old girl. I love being able to relate to you and your life.
PS... I love Ryann's awkward pose. It made me laugh so hard. And reminds me of my sons awkward photo bombing. Thanks for sharing.
