The love of a mother

It never ceases to amaze me how pure and intense a mothers love is. I sometimes look at my child and just tear up for no apparent reason. Even when I am mad at the little booger, I still have to bite my tongue from smiling. I know that these times are fleeting and that this too shall pass. It is truly a miracle that after your newborn has kept you up all night, you are thrilled to see them smile up at you the next morning. It is a total pure love.

I once heard someone say that when you have a child, your heart is now outside of your body. I now totally get that. If I think my child's feelings are hurt, I actually ache. Don't even get me started about thinking someone abusing my child in way, shape or form.

I have been having one of those days today. Both kids are sick, men are beating on my roof and little men are pounding away in my head. If this was any job I would be ready to quit. Its sheer love that keeps me coming back for more.... can I get an amen? :)

My child left a gold fish trail through 3 stores today, got a lolipop (otherwise know as BRIBERY) stuck in her hair, and wiped greasy fingers (from more bribery) all over her clothes, face, hair and car seat.

But I still love her anyway. :)
