A mother's love


What would I ever do without this lady? Seriously. I'd be lost, and probably stressed out 99.9 percent of the time. I call her far more than any normal daughter probably calls her mother, but it's not always to ask her how to cook something. That's long in the past. Now, it's just to talk, ok, and occasionally to ask for advice. She's the best around, so of course she's number two on speed dial. Man, I love her!

Thanks to a $5 plane ticket to OKC this past weekend, and a Saturday spent in our pajama's sewing, I'm now like a bazillion times closer to having our nursery/guest room ready for our little man to get here in just 10 more weeks, and boy is it going to be cute.

I've long since decided that not living near my parents is pretty much the lamest thing ever. As I dropped my mom off at the airport, I couldn't hold back the tears that started pouring from my eyes. Yes, I cry every time I have to say bye to family. It's just the way it is, and I'm ok with that. But this time, I couldn't hold back those tears just thinking about how much I love my mom, and that the next time I see her, I'LL BE A MOM!!!!

WHAT?!

How am I ever going to love my own child the way she loves me? Better yet, will my own child love me the way I love her? That's a scary thought. A mother's love is one of the greatest loves there is, and I'm so glad I've had such an amazing example of a mother in my life. It's a little scary thinking how much I have to live up to. I only hope I can be half the mom that she is, because in my eyes, she's the perfect mother, and I couldn't have asked for better.

You will love that wee one so much more than you can imagine! Or maybe you have a better imagination that I do. I'm still in constant awe of how I feel about that crazy little person who came to live with us. She is the most amazing thing I've ever seen.

You're going to be an amazing mamma! Yay for babies!

Fun to see you FINALLY look pregnant . . . took long enough! :) jk (kind of)

I didn't think I could ever love anything/one as much as my own family but that little boy will conquer your heart like nothing else. I promise.

So excited to see you soon and I'm glad you had so much fun with our awesome mother.

a $5 plane ticket to go visit family?!! I'm loving that! You are so lucky to have such a close relationship with your mom. Not all kids get that. Your baby will though!

Oh man, I remember crying everytime my mom left when she came to visit me in Sacramento...I especially cried after she would come help me with Easton, when she left I realized I'd be on my own again and that was hard! Thank goodness for moms!
