I realized this morning that I completely failed to mention anything about my own mother in my elaborate post yesterday.
I am so very grateful and beyond blessed by the mother I have. She's an amazing example to me in both motherhood and life and she is one of my very best friends. Daily I am strengthened by her example and teachings. I love you, Mom!
Today was a very full day. I was busy from 5 AM on to about 11 PM. But, I am healthier, our yard looks better, everyone is fed, the house is cleaner, and we even managed to make time for Family Home Evening with a nice lesson on modesty from Sweet P.
I love watching my kids grow and become more capable. It is awesome.
But, I still wish my baby would stay a baby just a bit longer. She is completely mobile now and pulling up on everything. Earning her a couple bruises today. I'm sure they are the first of many to come. She is the least cautious of all of my babies and just takes off for wherever she wants to go, regardless of what is in the way. We are going to have our hands full keeping her safe.
