I was just about to fall into a deep sleep when I heard a pitiful “mooommma” from the bathroom. I walk in and this is what I see. Immediately I start laughing. Why? Because it’s Mother’s Day and I’m caring for a sick kid and cleaning up a bathroom full of thick vomit.
Of course I have compassion on my baby. I start tending to her needs and she starts apologizing. I let her know that it is okay! I then said “Happy Mother’s Day To Me!” and we both laugh. She knows its all good, and I know thats why I’m here. To clean up messes and cater to sick kids. And honestly I enjoy it. I would want no one else caring for my babies. They wouldn’t do it like me, anyway. 🙂
Motherhood is always something that I’ve enjoyed. Of all the roles that I have, mothering my children tops the list. I truly want to be the best mom that I can be. I want to be the best me so they can feel confident emulating me. I desire to give them an example to emulate.
Well, I better get to bed because Keziah will be waking up for a bottle in a few hours. 🙂
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers. And Happy Mother’s Day to me.
