I have had so many thoughts on this subject because so many people have made a huge impact on my life. I am very much a product of the people around me- and I am grateful to have been surrounded by so many wonderful influences. I would have to say though, that these two people have made the biggest impact...
Before these two came along, I only thought I had an idea of what life would be like as a mom. I had my little brothers and sister to help take care of, numerous kids that I babysat, and I was even a Nanny for almost a year in Portland- but nothing...nothing...prepared me for motherdom.
These two have taught me more than I could have ever learned any other way. They NEVER go away, so no matter what- I have to deal with it- the good, the bad, the ugly and everything else, and I LOVE it. I have never laughed so hard, cried as much or been more frustrated all at once, and it's a testament to what I can handle. I've never been so entertained!
I love these two more than life. I can't imagine my life without them in it. I'm so grateful they chose me- and that I was trusted to take care of them for now. I just wish they wouldn't grow up so fast!
Brett and I go to Hawaii!
