I'm the Kind of Mom...

...who is a little wacko on her first Mother's Day as a mother of two.  I look exhausted in this picture (I was), my son is wearing a Darth Vader mask, and my daughter is eating her hand.  All I can say is that I am happy that I now sleep through the night.

...who lets her son have one of those annoying Donald Duck beaks at Disney World, makes sure her daughter has a Cinderella shirt because that is her favorite princess, and wears clothes appropriate for every single water ride.

...who gets in the creek with the kids and not just sit on the side and watch.

...who bundles up and spends a couple of hours in a huge refrigerator full of icy things to climb on. I will also put you inside my jacket and carry you for the last thirty minutes when you finally get too cold.

...who gets on her hands and knees to crawl in bubble dinosaur viewer.  Getting in was easier than getting out!

...who makes you go snorkeling because it is something I've always wanted to do.  You ended up loving it!

...who pushes you off a ledge above the forest because you were hesitant.  Every child needs a little push in life, right?  You ended up loving that, too!

...who drives you to Nashville and waits in line on a school night to meet your favorite book characters.

...who can't wait to jump in the inner tube!

...who still makes you have your picture made with her.  Always will!

I love you bunches, Carter and Lauren!
Happy Mother's Day to all of you moms out there!
