Happy Mother's Day!

I just want to wish all the Momma's a very Happy Mother's Day!
I can't believe I've been a Momma for 7 years now! I can't believe I have two beautiful girls. I always thought I'd have four boys (and be married to River Phoenix)! I'm more than happy with the way things turned out though. I looooove having the girls. I love the drama. The chaos, even the meltdowns. The sparkly everything, the sing-song voices. The fact that Momma is always wrong. The lip gloss. The chicken nuggets. The Wiggle concerts (all 35 of them). The happy loud. The cannon balls. The fact that my 4-year-old learned how to ride a two-wheeled bike yesterday! The constant "ants in their pants". The crayons, markers, oil pastels, chalk, glue sticks, glitter, feathers, stickers, pipe cleaners, and pom poms. Olivia's sea shell collection. The enthusiasm. Packing lunches. Field trips. Dresses (cuz Momma never wears 'em). The 2041 pony holders, barrettes and headbands we've collected but will only wear for a total of 5 minutes. Sleep overs at Grandma's. Movie night. Go Fish. Flushable wipes. Playing hide and seek in the house. The pink. Night lights. The Disney Channel. "Oh my Pickles!" The snuggling on the couch with little feet all over me. The constant questions. The bedtime prayers. Saturday morning pancakes. Kisses. Jonas Brothers. How Addy thinks she's a mermaid. Barbies. Belly laughs. Preschool. First Grade. The importance of gum. Grape flavored Tylenol. The smell of my girls straight out of the bath tub.

I don't even know how to end this list as you know it just goes on and on (and I'm only 7 years into this!). But I just feel so blessed to be The Momma and I wouldn't change a thing.

Happy Day, ladies.

Awesome picture of you and your girls, you must have much warmer weather that we do!

I'd like to add, Barbie shoes and Polly Pocket dresses.

And that "I didn't put any glitter on my face," being said with a glittered face.

Ah could I forget the polly pocket dresses (and shoes)?

The world is a better place with glitter too! :)
