Someone responed to my last blog post about hearing the word “Mama” out the mouth of my boy, saying what a special moment it was for me and my son. MY SON! I know this is ridiculous, I have known I was having a son and a daughter since May last year. I have these very precious little guys out my tummy and in my arms for over eight months. But sometimes I am still completely blow away at the sound MY SON or MY DAUGHTER or MY CHILDREN. Isn’t that crazy? How long until I know and understand that I really am a Mother and have a son and a daughter (ooohhh I am loving the sound of that, Son and Daughter, I might have to drive you all crazy and keep saying it!) 😉
You would think after the last week we have had with lack of sleep and sickie Pudding and having to hold my Daughter in my arms for hours on end during the night so she can get some rest would have helped to make this a reality, but still…
Strangely I have really enjoyed the extra cuddles with Pudding even though they are in the middle of the night. Some days it feels that my tiny babies are gone and in their place are these emerging little people and I miss those tiny babes.
There are days I am so overwhelmed by my life that I become scared, is it possible for anyone to have a life this good? Don’t get me wrong, it is no fun having severely disturbed sleep, especially when you are sick yourself. But there is honestly nothing else I would rather be doing than being their Mommy. Maybe it is a lot easier for me to say that because I really do have a LOT of help. I get to go out to work for a few hours every day and have time to stimulate my brain in a job I actually enjoy (most of the time). And at home I have excellent support and help who are just fantastic with the kids and who the kiddies love. My life is good!
