on mother's day.

Sometimes I don't feel like being a mom. I don't want to put them first. I don't want to get up in the night. I don't want to be the one with the answers. Nate gave me the best gift ever for Mother's Day. He gave me a day off. I spent the day sleeping, reading and lounging with my littlest babe. He took the big kids to the carwash and finished planting my garden. Claire lovingly created zillions of handmade cards and pictures for me. My favorite reads, Mom Love Claire.

I could use a picture that reads Mom Love Ingrid when she is waking me in the night to nurse and I'd rather sleep. Or Mom Love Everett when he is struggling with getting to the potty in time to avoid a messy accident.
Mom Love Them. No matter what.
