I remember interviewing for various jobs when I was a teenager and whenever they would ask me where I saw myself in 10 years, my answer was always the same. I wanted to be a mom. I probably missed out on a lot of good job opportunities because of that answer (my long term goal was to get pregnant, not upper management) but it was just something I knew. I’d been planning my family since I was 15. I wanted 3 boys and 1 girl; I even had their names picked out. Until I got older and realized my life would be a lot cheaper if we nixed the girl, so 3 boys it is. 🙂
Don’t get me wrong, these 3 are still a handful. They’ve learned how to gang up on Huz and I and how to manipulate me into getting whatever they want.
Who am I kidding. I love to spoil them rotten.
Mother’s Day was busy. We had our own mom’s to see and even snuck in a visit to see my grandma. And to add to the chaos, Huz had to be at church all morning and Jackson had a basketball game in the middle of the day.
This is motherhood in all its glory: running errands, balancing schedules and eating dinner at a drive thru at 9:30pm while signing off on the weekend homework. But there is no one else I’d rather do it for.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you mama’s!
