I had one of those rare moments this morning as a mom where I got a pat on the back for what I do. I do what I do because I love them deeply, and for no other reward, but the odd good job mom is always appreciated.
This morning Jacob looked up at me over his bowl of cereal and said I’m so happy you’re our mom. I mean, you’re always looking for fun stuff for us to do. I’m glad we are with you.
I said thanks buddy. Tears welling up.
He said I mean it, we are so lucky. We have such a great life here and I’m happy you’re looking after us. Plus you never try to hold us back from doing the things we really want.
That made me so happy. I always waht to be their safe spot and have them feel that I encourage them in all they do.
My happiness moment. I love those two humans from the depths of my soul. They have made me a better version of myself.
