A Decade of Mother's Days

My thoughts....

Mother's Day 1997--"Woe is me...I'll never be a mother!"

Mother's Day 1998--"Why can't I have children? I'd be the best mother ever!"

Mother's Day 1999--"Adoption is wonderful...my baby is perfect!"

Mother's Day 2000--"Who says this mothering thing is hard? I must just be an exceptional parent...maybe I'll write a child-rearing book!"

Mother's Day 2001--"Wow...a two year old and a newborn...hmm, maybe I'd better read a child-rearing book!"

Mother's Day 2002--"D*#$^%$(S!"

Mother's Day 2003--"Maybe I could handle just ONE more child?!"

Mother's Day 2004--"Hooray...the twins are home from the NICU!"

Mother's Day 2005--"What was I thinking?!"

Mother's Day 2006--"How did Mom do this? I need to send her a GOOD gift!"

Mother's Day 2007--"Who just threw up?"

What a difference a decade makes! I just read a quote by Mark Twain: "I caused my mother a lot of trouble, but I think she enjoyed it." Spoken like a son who knows his mom loves him in spite of himself.

Josh always reminds me...be careful what you wish for (you just might get it).

You are such a great mom and I'm so glad you got such great kids. We love you guys to pieces!
