you melt my heart: a mommy moment


There are many many times when it is tough to be a mom, many. You can read just how hard it can be for me HERE. But there are so many instances that make it worth it. While it's nice to vent and necessary to have support to get you through those rough times it's nice to be reminded that it's not all time spent in the trenches. There are many moments that just melt your heart and remind you exactly how proud you are to be a mom.

When you wake up and are crying out from your crib, I open the door and you grin at me from ear to ear.

When I pick you up after work and as I walk through the door you spot me and start giggling and take off to get to me.

When you crawl over to my pants leg and try to pull yourself up to me because you want me to hold you.

When you slowly drift off to sleep in my lap.

When you offer me a book because you want me to read to you.

When you are playing with your toys and look up at me and smile.

When you call me mamamamama.

When you reach out for me to hold you.

When I'm carrying you in my arms and you turn to give me that sweet little grin.

When you grab my hand as you toddle across the floor because you know I got you.

When you stare at my face as I hold you in my arms.

I love you so much, more than you will ever realize until you have your own.....and in those moments you melt my heart. It makes all the headaches and hair pulling worth it. Thank you for being mine and showing me what unconditional love is.
