For as long as I can remember I have wanted to be a mama.
As a little girl I loved my babies, playing house and dreaming about one day being a mom. And now I am. To my two darling girls. And while "playing house" in the grown up world includes paying bills, doing the dishes, and numerous other frustrations...being a mom has brought me my lifes greatest joy.
I still catch my breath sometimes when I look at the two of them.
Or when I get to say sentences like, "The girls and I went here today..." or "The girls were so cute when..." They make me so very happy.
I've been thinking about that a lot recently...how happy they make me. Perhaps it is because I am approaching my last week of maternity leave and know that these precious days are limited. Perhaps it's because I'm just sentimental like that. Perhaps it is because they are both at really fun stages right now. And perhaps it's because that's how all mama's feel when they look at their little loves. Such pure and true happiness.
