Dear Kids

December 9, 2012

Dear Joshua and Aurora,

You two gave me a rough day today. Really rough. I woke up to screaming, yelling, jumping….I know this is typical but I wasn’t feeling well today. Sometimes mommy isn’t on her game and then the craziness that is you two is harder.

But let me tell you both, several times a day I am amazed at how perfect you make my life. I hear you laughing and you run up and put your arms around me and I think it is so perfect, that you are so perfect, and that this all can’t last. I am trying to enjoy the moment and not start already mourning the end of these times when life feels so absolutely fulfilling.

I love you two. I love you more than I love me.


At the end of the day, when the yelling, fighting, and jumping has stopped and you are asleep after reading our latest two pages of Chronicles of Narnia Horse and His Boy (because that is all we get through each night before you pass out), I sit and stare at how beautiful you both are and tuck you in. And I miss the yelling, asking for water, and wanting another PB and J sandwich. I miss you needing me for the few hours of break that I get until you wake up from a bad dream or just needing to cuddle.

Raising you two is the hardest thing I have ever done and I love it. There is nothing that I want more than to be your mom.
