Yea! Happy Mother's day to me....The nursing drama is not over yet, but it definitely has improved. Tayden is acting more normal and not nursing every two seconds of my life....what a relief! To add to the wonderful day Jared got me a new camera (for my birthday too) that I have been really wanting. He got me a Nikon D40. I am so excited to learn how to use it. I love being a mom and everything that comes with it. I have learned so much from my two little monkeys and I feel so blessed to have them in my life. They truly are so special to me.
Now I must give a shout out to my dearest mother....Happy Mother's day mom....I love you so much. It is so funny to me to look back on my life. I know that I was probably to most annoying child ever for my mom (probably similar to Boston) and she was always so patient and loving. Then as I became a teenager I was such a little brat to my mom. She did so much for me and I never appreciated her for what an amazing mother she was. When I left home I quickly realized how ungrateful I had been and acted towards her for so long. I was such a brat. I should have taken advantage of what an awesome mom I had. I should have thanked her every day....I should have let her know how much I appreciated all that she did for me and how much she loved me unconditionally. She is SO talented....she can do it all....cook, clean, sew, and garden. Oh I could have learned so much from her at the time, but now I am playing catch up and trying to get all I can from her. Not only that, but my mom is the most amazing example of the type of wife and mother I will always strive to be. I don't know if I will ever reach her level...probably not...but I don't even know where to start. My mom is so patient, tender hearted, caring, and compassionate. She shows such a good example of living the gospel and following the spirit. She is one of the most selfless people I know. I always know that I can turn to her for advice or for a listening ear. I love you mom. You are truly one of my best friends.
I couldn't forget about my wonderful mother-in-law either. Becky is by far one of the sweetest women I know. She from day one has always made me feel so welcome in her family. She has treated me like one of her own daughters. She truly has a way of making people feel beyond welcome and at home. I spent almost two years practically living in her home with Boston while Jared was deployed and I never once felt like I wasn't welcome. It was almost like Becky would make sure that I knew that she expected me to stay at their house any time I didn't want to be at home. She also is so endearing and has such a strong and special spirit about her. She is by far the most patient person I know, and is so talented. It still amazes me to see her with all of the grandchildren. I swear she can handle my children better than I can. She just has this special touch when it comes to my kids. I will be forever grateful to her for raising such an amazing man that I can call my husband and father of my children. She truly taught him well and by example.
I love you Becky...Happy Mother's Day!
My favorite picture of me and my mom on Mother's Day two years ago....
