“You don't really understand human nature unless you know why a child on a merry-go-round will wave at his parents every time around - and why his parents will always wave back.”
-William D. Tammeus
I've been a Mother for three years going on four, and I have learned more about life during that time than all the years before combined. Who knew such a small being could be my greatest teacher?
Jack has been on this kick where he says at random times, "You're my Mommy." It's not said as a question, but more as a statement that he wants affirmed by me. I look at him and say, "Yep I'm your Mama, and you're my Jack."
This morning Jack & Joel surprised me with breakfast in bed and a homemade card.
Jack actually came into our room this morning and said, "Happy Monster Day!" Joel had told him that they needed to make a Mother's Day card, but Jack thought he said Monster Day card. Hence the monster on my card :)
(I love the poems they come up with, lol.)
Later today we're off to visit our Mothers... and bring them a few homemade goodies.
Happy Mother's Day to all the Mothers, Motherly figures, and future Mamas! How are you spending today?
