“Mothers and their children are in a category all their own. There’s no bond so strong in the entire world. No love so instantaneous and forgiving.”―Gail Tsukiyama
I don’t know if it’s because Mother’s Day is tomorrow or the fact that all three of my children turn one year older this time of year, but I am a mess.
It’s 8:30, all three kids are asleep and I’m stalking my own Instagram feed filled with – wait for it – 1,811 photos, almost entirely of them.
I second guess everything I’m doing and wonder if I’m teaching them enough. Am I teaching them the right things? Am I being too hard on them? Expecting too much? Am I feeding their souls and preparing them for this crazy, messed up, wonderful world?
But then I remember that both of my boys told me I was “the best mom in the entire world” tonight before I turned off their light and I look down at Storie lying right next to me and know we are right where we are supposed to be.
Happy Mother’s Day! And sorry for the shameless post used as an excuse to look through my pictures and smile and laugh and cry.
