Mother's Day...

It was a simple task, brushing your teeth, we do it twice a day. I go first to show you how it's done and you imitates me with your own toothbrush. It's funny how much you are picking up on each day. Like the saying goes, "monkey see, monkey do".

Today we are busy to get out the door for daycare and Dadda been away all week leaving me a bit frazzled from time to time. But at this moment while brushing your teeth, I realise, I'm your Mum. The one responsible to show you how to brush your teeth, tie your shoes and teach you right from wrong. Such a huge responsibility but one I grab with two hands everyday.

I know I seem a little harsh sometimes with making you sit at the table to eat instead of roaming the house or nagging you to be gentle around your little brother but these are all little steps to the man you will (God willing) become one day.

I can't believe we only met eighteen months ago, it feels like I've know you my whole life. And even though some days I don't even get a chance to stop and think, I wouldn't have it any other way. I love you and your brother more than words can express and I love being your Mum.
