Happy Mother's Day!

Hey everyone, Happy Mother's Day!  I know most of us bloggers are mom's and I've already seen some really good posts in celebration of today.  Being a mom is something I never thought I wanted to do.  I was the working girl, who liked to have fun and do whatever I wanted to do.  But then as my husband and I got older, and we were the only ones without kids, we thought maybe we were missing out on something.  And we surely weren't getting any younger!  So we decided to try for just one. 

Obviously you don't know what to expect when you first start trying.  My best friend was unable to get pregnant without the help of fertility drugs and treatments... and it took her over a year to conceive with her first son.  And like I said, my husband and I weren't getting any younger, so we knew we had to get crackin'!  Wouldn't ya know it... I got knocked up the first month out of the gate!  Well so much for the good time trying to get pregnant.

But I must say that it was the perfect pregnancy.  I never threw up, I had no complications, and 9 months later I had the perfect baby boy.  He was 8 lbs 15 oz.  A big boy!  

It truly is the most challenging and the scariest job I have ever had.... but it has also been the most rewarding and joyful.  I am so glad that we have him... even through the terrible toddler times!  Haha! 

So here's to all the Mom's out there, I hope you all have a perfect day!

  1. Well, you were one cute pregnant lady! Carter was darling right from the start. My kids are grown but I would say being a mother is the most important job (and joy) I have ever had.
