I have a mother
  • who instilled in me a love of reading
  • who has been here for me every step of the way
  • who taught me what a marriage should be
  • who is an amazing baker
  • who has a head scarf to match every outfit and a bracelet to match each cardigan
  • who loves my child more than I ever imagined
  • who has become one of my closest friends and who always knows the right thing to say

I am a mother to a little girl
  • who is 20lbs of personality
  • who walks past the toddler and little kid equipment on the playground because "it's too small, want big slide"
  • who spontaneously says "I love you"
  • who is on a constant quest to find a pink airplane
  • who runs faster than I knew a 2 year old could run
  • who wants to do whatever the grown ups are doing
  • who loves animals with an amazing passion
  • who can count to ten but usually chooses to count "one, free, nine"
  • whose favorite activity is writing lists
  • who loves to pretend that it's "seeping" time. who will cover each participant with a blanket and give them a lovey. But don't open your eyes or your head might get shoved back into the pillow. Nap time is very serious :)
  • who is fiercely independent, but still needs a kiss when she has an owie
  • who has taught me that being a mother is so much more than I ever could have imagined. That even the darkest day can be brightened with a smile and a "I lu loo!"
