Mom's Day

"Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever ot have your heart go walking around outside your body."--Elizabeth Stone

Todays T-T-A is all about mom's and they gave us a few options. I would like to start mine out by sharing a poem that I found on the internet.

What is a Mother?

A mother has so many things to do.

From washing, ironing, cleaning to tying a shoe.

She scrubs, she mends, she cooks and sews,

She bathes the children and washes their clothes.

When they forget to wash their faces clean,

And their clothes are the muddiest you've ever seen,

Who repairs the clothes and scrubs them like new?

Of course, that is what a mother will do.

Who becomes the doctor or the nurse when they are ill,

Applying a bandage or giving them a pill?

Who becomes a teacher when a child has homework?

She must never her duty shirk.

Who becomes a detective to find a toy or a book?

For missing things she must look and look.

Who becomes a listener to every heartache,

To every accomplishment that a child makes?

Who scolds their children when they are naughty,

Or reminds them of God when they are haughty?

Who tends her family with love and patience, too?

Of course that is what a mother will do.


I love being a mom! I am so grateful that I am able to stay home with my kids. I am glad that I get to teach them values and how to behave. My kids bring so much joy to my life. I worry about them when they are sick and I wish that I could be sick for them. I hate to see my children in pain. I love to hear them laugh. I love to hear what my son Landon is learning in Kindergarten. I love Emma's willingness to help out with the cleaning. I love to hear Reagan laugh and I love to see all my kid's smile.
I am also grateful for my mom. She is my best friend. I am so glad that I can ask her for advice when I have a problem and she listen's with an open mind and helps me to see things clearly. I am so grateful for all her help. She is there when you need her. She has alway's been a really good example to me. I hope that someday I can be as good of a mom as she is! I love her so much!

Being a mom is the BEST! I agree that seeing your kids smile is the greatest thing, and it does stink when they are sick. I would not trade my job for anything!
