One of THOSE Moms

This morning I was on the couch "chatting" with Norah just as we do throughout the day... and as I'm talking to her I'm telling her how much I'm going to miss her when she's not around and when she goes to school and then when she moves out and I find myself crying! First of all, why am I thinking that far ahead? Second, am I still hormonal or is it just my silly personality!?

I've thought so many times about how it will be hard when Norah is at the stage where she pushes me away or sasses back and hurts my feelings. During those times I always pray that I'm not "one of those moms" who cries through every little thing... but I might just be that mom! Lord, give me the strength to love Norah unconditionally and think of her before myself, even if it means I am emotional :)

Even if you are one of THOSE moms, remember that YOU have been uniquely chosen by God to be Norah's MOM...and THAT makes you the best mom of all:)

I have done the same thing! I can look at him and just think about him growing up and start to cry. May be it is a all mom thing?

Oh, Kelly. Welcome to motherhood. I don't think it's hormones or personality...it's just being a mom. I totally cried on Hayden's birthday this year (5th). I couldn't believe 5 whole years had gone by...he looked at me like I was nuts! It was kind of funny. It's a beautiful thing that God has given you such a tender heart for your sweet girl. She will learn so much about loving others through you!
