thoughts on being a mother

being a mother is the craziest thing. 
it's the best feeling in the world.
but then literally two seconds later, it can be the must frustrating feeling in the world.
it sounds so incredibly cliché, but it's so true.

i live for these little babes of mine.
they are a gift i have been entrusted with.

i know that the constant messes, the incessant "was dat? wasss dat, mama?" and the tantrums will fade.
i know that the overwhelming frustration i can feel at times will barely be a memory when i'm old and grey.
{i mean, sometimes even now when i retell the stories, they sound downright comical even though at the time they had me in tears.}

i know i'm going to look back and miss their squeaky little voices begging for "naks" {snacks}, "memo" {the movie finding nemo}, "cookee" {cookies} and "pwetty dwesssss" {pretty dresses}.

i hope that i can be as good a mother to them as my mother is to me.
she comes to town and helps me out with the kids for weeks.
i hope i can do that for them one day.
i hope i can be more patient and give them everything they need, not just things they want.

and i hope that one day soon i can have 24 hours to myself so i can just sewwwwwww.
doesn't that sound dreamy?
plus multiple seasons of reality tv shows i've missed since we gave up cable {SO expensive!} and meals and beverages delivered to my door so i don't even have to take the time to cook.

happy mother's day, y'all.
