I love being a mom...most all of the time. These past few days have presented some interesting challenges: Addison's constipation has traumatized both of us with trying 'remedies' for this frustrating problem; Laynie's tantrums have become at least 10x louder and more determined over the past few days; and I was SURE that I was having a baby last Friday, only to have all of my contractions stop abruptly after several hours of coming every 5 minutes :(
But, motherhood is by far the most fulfilling and usually enjoyable thing I have ever done. Addison, after learning about plants at preschool, asked me if he were to drink a lot of water and sit in the sun if he would grow (I wish it were that easy!). And Laynie brought me her Elmo pony-tail holder after finding it outside wet from the rain and said with her serious expression "this is so terrible."
Yes, I love being a mommy, and I am so excited for our new little girl to come. Hopefully the next post will be all about her!
