(Me with my Mom, Saxon, and Dalton - the day Dalton was born)
A friend of mine posted this quote on facebook:
(you may have seen it going around)2yrs, "mommy , I love you". 12yrs, " mom, whatever" , 16yrs "mom is so annoying" , 18yrs " I want to leave this place " , 25yrs " mom, you were right" , 30yrs "I want to go to my moms house" , 50yrs "I don't want to lose my mom", 70yrs ,"I would give up everything for my mom to be here with me". A mother is irreplaceable , post this on your wall if you appreciate and love your Mom♥..
It makes me love each "Mommy, I love you" from my boys and remember each "Mom, whatever" that I handed out and dread the day that my kids say the same thing.
I have a friend whose mom died when she was a teenager. She doesn't ever complain, but says that there are just some moments where you need your mom, and no one else will do.
It makes me appreciate my mom, and appreciate the chance to be a mom.
