On Being A Mom

Being a mom has changed my life in so many ways!  There is absolutely nothing that compares to this part of my life!  Now, I am little less conventional since I have an 18 year old and a 4 year old but I would not trade my circumstances for anything in the world.  Does my parenting become a little bi-polar?  You bet!  Parenting my little Diva is much different than parenting my almost grown Moody Teen.  Most days I manage to keep it all together and I know who I am talking to but there are days when things get a little messy and my mind fails to keep the teen and the toddler separated.  I blame MY age (soon to be another year older)!

19 years ago, when I was pregnant with the Teen, the weather was much like it is now!  Rainy and cold for typical May temperatures.  Just one thing I remember as I prepare the his high school graduation!  Yikes!!  Then my mind takes  me to the day he held 10 adults at bay with an active garden hose with a sprayer!  He was 4 and he was determined to soak us all.  Memories, sweet memories.

I could tell lots of Diva tale but we would be here all day so I will tell one of my favs from last summer.  We went to a 4th of July cookout at a friends and there were other kids running around when we got there.  The Diva walked up to a 2 year old in a bikini and loudly stated, "My mom has bigger bras than you!"  Oh my!  We all had a good laugh!

I pray that you all have a wonderful weekend!  To all the mothers:  Happy Mother's Day!  To all the kids and husbands:  make this weekend one to remember for the special mom in your life!  To my Mama:  I miss you more everyday but am thankful for all the wonderful memories and the great advice that you shared along the way!
