Being a mom...

Do you ever have quick thoughts about being a mom that choke you up and touch your heart?
Today, as I was cooking scrambled eggs and one "dip" egg, I had that moment. "If I had to go to work early in the morning, I would never get to fix my kids the exact breakfast they were hungry for." I don't know why that shook me, but it did. I love to cook for my children and see their little smiles when it's just what they "ordered". Breakfast is the one meal that's so easy it can be made special to everyone's likings.
Sometimes I take being a stay-at-home mom for granted. Here I sit...still in pj's with wild hair...enjoying a little Elmo and cuddle time (did you know Bert had a unibrow?).
Being home is a huge blessing. Having three lovey-dovey babies is a huge blessing. Taking care of their needs is a huge blessing. Cleaning up after them is a .... huge blessing.
I love it!

Yes, we are VERY lucky! My neighbor was talking about how they all grab poptarts and run out the door in the morning. I can't imagine, not making pancakes and eggs or letting them have rice krispie bars (that's breakfast food.. right??) and sitting down together to a start out our day! Great reminder!
