Anniversary time!

So, today MM and I celebrate 13 years together...in married bliss. well, mostly bliss. :)

We were married as kids...yeah. i was young and in love...and i think i love him more now than then. Then, I wanted to be married. Now, I've been married a while...and we finish each others sentences. We know each other as well or better than we know ourselves.

So I'm going to tell ya'll this...knowing he'll read it too. LOL. This man, MM, is my world. He's made me mom to five beautiful girls, he's given me the opportunity to have the greatest job in the world...mom. This man, he loves me without reason, he listens to my craziness. He is my perfect compliment. He is the ying to my yang...the peanut to my butter....and I love him.

Happy anniversary love!

Mother's Day 2011 is today. :)

yup, today. you see, yesterday I had the pleasure and privilege of being with my friend while she labored and delivered her second child. I am very proud of Linda, she did a great job, and the baby is gorgeous!

However, I missed Mother's day with my daughters. So today we are Mother's day-ing it up! The children got up early with daddy to make breakfast for me...yummy! The children brought me the cards they made for me, and AR brought be a really cool crown that she made for me. I am having a LOVELY Mother's day! and today, we'll watch movies, and eat yummy food, and tonight, a chicken and rice casserole, with a pie for desert!

How was your Mother's day?

Mother's day...

Mother's day. Every year, so many thoughts...including the thoughts of "dangit mm, take the children shopping for mother's day!"...ha!

So, this mother's day, here are my thoughts.

This is my mom with miss v. My mom had lots goin when I was young. I'm sure I didn't make it any easier! My mom was a nurse, a chauffeur, and a sounding board. She gave good advice, and still does. For my young life, I wanted to be just like mom. For my teenage years, my mom was crazy, and my friend...now that I have children of my own, my mom is my confidant and my go-to person on raising girls!

This is AJ.

She is the girl that made me a mommy. It's tough stuff to be the first born child. I know, b/c for many years i was one. Much of the responsibility falls on her. She handles it with a great deal of grace and humility...for 10 years old. :) She wants to be a wife when she grows up...which makes me proud!

This is AR.

She tests me daily. I'm afraid some days that I fail those tests over and over again. She makes me proud to be a mom too...she wants to be a mom and a chiropractor when she grows up.

This is CM.

She is growing up way to fast for my tastes! She is so smart, and so very funny! She tells me about once a week how she misses Penelope, her twin sister that died when they were born. She is such a blessing in my life...and any other life she touches!

This is CG.

She is such a mess. She was my easiest birth. She loved being the baby for a long time...and now loves being a big sister!

This is Miss V.

Miss V is my baby girl. what can i say...this child has pushed me to my limits. She's been to the ER, she burned her hand...she's a disaster waiting to happen! I wouldn't trade her for all the rice in China either. :)

This is MM.

He made me the Queen when he proposed...and now, I'm blessed to be called mommy by our children. just call me the queen mum!

Here I'd like to insert a family pic...but we don't have one! I think for Mother's day, we'll have to snap one!

Ah, Mother's day. Love Mother's day. Know what I want for mother's day? I want a sweeper. a sword. throwing knives. and a cast iron two burner griddle. oh, and a bike. but i have an anniversary coming up...so some of that can go there too. :)
