For My Boyz on Mother's Day

You were lifted out of my body while I held my breath until I heard each of your newborn cries...I am your mother.

You have changed my physical body in ways I never would have thought possible...I am your mother.

You gave me so many sleepless nights that I never realized how sleep-deprived I truly was until now when I reflect back...I am your mother.

You have made me immune to bodily functions and their smells...I am your mother.

You can make my heart happy by the pucker of your lips when I inquire "Did you kiss your mother today?"...I am your mother.

You keep me firmly grounded in the reality that mommyhood isn't rainbows and butterflies and holding hands and skipping off into the sunset...I am your mother.

You never cease to test the boundaries of acceptable behavior to see whether I will follow through (I try to)...I am your mother.

You know that I will (almost always) stop what I am doing for a hug, snuggle, or to read you a story...I am your mother.

You bring me joy and pain, sometimes all at once...I am your mother.

You have inexplicably changed what makes me ME...I am your mother.

For all these and (so many, many) more, I thank you, Eldest, Middle and Baby.

I am your mother.

I think that is the sweetest thing I have ever read. You need to write that down for all 3 of your boys and give it to them when they get older.

Have a wonderful Mother's Day!!!
