Happy Mother's Day

Mother's Day is a wonderful day to celebrate my most important accomplishment in my life--becoming a mother. And for all you mothers out there, you know that this is NOT an easy job. But, it is the most wonderfully rewarding job you could ever have. All I have to do is look at Carter's sweet smile and my daily routine of feedings, diaper changes, baths, tantrums, and endless Elmo songs running through my head is totally worth it. This year my day started off perfect. I SLEPT IN. It was heavenly. Then I was woken up by my sweet husband and Carter with a yummy breakfast delivered to me from Bagels and Brew. So delicious! We took Carter to visit Grayson so my Mother's Day could be complete.
Carter was thrilled to have found a grave with plastic Easter eggs left on it. I let him play with them (not sure if that is against some sort of cemetery etiquette?!) We of course put them back before we left!
Then we went home for naptime and Dave and I got to cuddle on the couch and watch a few episodes of Camelot. Then we headed to his brother's house for dinner. Carter loved the freedom of running around their big house and eventually tripped, fell, and smacked his face on the tile. It was a bloody disaster. I could not even bear to look at it! Dave's pediatrician brother came to the rescue and it ended up fine (bloody nose and cut lip, nothing serious.) Carter begged for his ba-ba of milk and was running around again in no time!

Yesterday was a lovely day. I love being a mom to such a sweet child and am lucky to have a wonderfully supportive husband who did everything to make my day nice. Being a mom makes me appreciate my own mother so much more for all the stress, anxiety, and worry that we put her through over the years!
