mother's day

Today at dinner Ben asked the kids what they love most about me. Benson said, "She makes me yummy food," and Banks said, "Ummmmmm... Babies, soon."

No, this is not an announcement, unless Banks knows something I don't. But what a sweet thing to say! He loves me because I have babies! haha

I love being a mom, and although sometimes it gets a bit tedious, I really wouldn't trade my job for anything. I love those little babies more than I ever knew possible, and I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to raise them.

I love you too, Mom, and I find that as I learn more of the sacrifices of being a mom, my love for you grows. Thank you for being you, and for all the sacrifices you've made for me.
