Mother's Day

Here's to you
You were pink or blue
And everything I wanted
Here's to you
Never sleeping through
From midnight till the morning
Had to crawl before you walked
Before you ran
Before I knew it 
You were trying to free your fingers from my hand
'Cause you could do it on your own now

Slow down
Won't you stay here a minute more
I know you want to walk through the door
But it's all too fast
Let's make it last a little while
I pointed to the sky and now you wanna fly
I am your biggest dan
I hope you know I am
But do you think you can somehow
Slow down

-lyrics to Slow Down by Nichole Nordeman

Mother's day. It's one of those days that you are supposed to celebrate your mother or feel celebrated as a mother, but all it did was leave me reminded how quickly my children's childhoods are happening. I really am so incredibly thankful for the opportunity to be these three amazing people's mother. It was something I never knew how much I wanted until I became a mother. These amazing and crazy human beings bring me so much laughter, joy and pride...and also make me exhausted and test my patience constantly. 

Ian served me breakfast in bed. The kids gave me funny notes telling me that they appreciated me for things like helping them with their homework and that I make them laugh when I scare their brother. There were painted plates made for me and hand drawn cards. Then we all took a trip up to Railtown (more on that later) and got to watch Callum's eyes light up as he took his first ever train ride. Then, to top it off, I went grocery shopping at a practically empty store, because I guess most moms don't grocery shop on mother's day. It was a pretty dang good day.
