I love being a mom.

We spent Mother’s Day weekend camping and because I hadn’t showered or pampered myself AT ALL for 3 days, I decided to forgo having a picture with my kids until yesterday. Thanks Brandon for being patient with my perfectionism;). xo

I love Mother’s day. I love reflecting on my biggest blessings–my children and how blessed I am to be a mother of two sweet & innocent spirits.  They are so patient with me and so loving and so sweet.  They constantly forgive me and tell me in their own little ways that they love and appreciate what I do for them.

Lola is full of the sweetest smiles. She doesn’t say “I love You” yet, but she doesn’t have to.  The way she looks at me says it all.  She will randomly hug any part of my body she can reach whether it be an arm or a leg or when I’m holding her and she lays her head on my shoulder and holds me tight.  Although she is so busy and constantly moving/running to the next thing–her 2 second hugs throughout each day are priceless.

Hudson is still so loving, physically and verbally.  He will take a break from playing here and there and want “Hold you’s” (he still says that when he wants me to hold him).  He will crawl in bed with me in the a.m. seeking snuggles and tickles. And more than once a day–usually when I’m busy doing the many little tasks that make up my day, he will say–”Mom”… (and wait for me to say “Yes, Hudson?”).. “I love YOU.”  It makes me feel so good and happy every single time, especially because I am all too often saying “Yes, Hudson” and thinking to myself, “what does he need now?!”  And every so often, not daily, but randomly he will grab my face with both hands like we do to him and give me a big smooch.  He is so sweet and special. How am I so blessed?!

Mother’s Day this year has helped me gain a desire to slow down and let go of some of the things that aren’t so important and enjoy the little moments with my little ones.  I am still so grateful to have a husband who is willing to work extra hard and make it work so I can be home with them full-time.  I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

I loved reading this Kim! And it makes me want to slow down and be a better mother and enjoy my boys more fully.
By the way, your kids are sooooo adorable!!

So happy to hear that you love being a mom! Haven’t found anything more challenging, but more rewarding in my life. I don’t think you can ever focus to much on your family! Glad to hear your priorities are straight. You’re a great example to me! Love you! Mom
