Mothers Day

We had a really nice weekend with family and getting to see Great Grandma. She is getting so tired so easily. She got up at 9 am, had breakfast went back to bed about 10:30 and didn't get up until 2 p.m. All of HER children were there today and she was really excited about that. It was nice for her to get to see all of her kids home again. I'm so glad that we only live 45 minutes away from her, everyone else had to come so far. Even though our town is small and I sometimes wish there was more to do I'm grateful everyday that I live close to most of my family. My first mother's day was really nice. It is so weird to be given a gift and stuff for it. I kind of feel old, even though I'm a young mom. I never thought I would be a Mommy at this age. I wouldn't trade any part of it though. It's been a long year, my little sister's anniversary is coming up next week and I remember sitting at her wedding reception with my feet up, because they were so swollen. In all the wedding pictures, I'm holding her bouquet in front of my belly to try and hide it a bit, because I was SO huge. Almost exactly one month later I gave birth to Kathryn.

You're right, I think (or I hope) that I will always be a young mom. I think you sound like an awesome, really fun mom.

I've gotta tell ya - your blog is very aptly named. Every time I read one of your responding comments, whether it's here or on my blog, the rest of my day really is great! :D You are such an awesome person!
