Once upon a time I was an interesting person. I had deep philosophical conversations with adults. I drank the occasional glass of wine and I ventured out of the house WITH my husband. Then GOD decided to answer my prayers ALL AT ONCE. He gave me 5 children in 5 years and I'm sure CHUCKLED to himself while doing so!
Now my days are no longer filled with work and my nights are not spent in clubs or out to dinner with friends. Now I read "Goodnight Moon", change 25 poopy diapers, sing "the itsy bitsy spider" and watch the same Disney movies OVER and OVER!
You would think I would be bitter and nasty having ALL the fun drained from my adult life....RIGHT? Well, I'm not. Sure I yell a little louder and have moments of sheer insanity but it's all worth it. They are CRAZY some days. I mean full on LOST THEIR MINDS CRAZY!!!! But it's all good. I have to remember...I PRAYED FOR THIS!!!! I looked to the heavens and said "GOD help me. I want to be a mother.". I'm not sure why he couldn't spread them out a little more...but hey...who's complaining?
I thank GOD mostly every day for keeping my boys healthy and happy. I never ask "WHY ME?". I'm not saying this makes me a great mother. Heck, I'm not even sure I'm an OK Mother. I am proud of my little brood and all their accomplishments. They have definitely made my life more interesting! They are ALL my gifts and I am extremely grateful!
