Steve: Do you love mommy?
Amara: Yeah... Uh huh.
Steve: What does mommy give you?
"I love mother because...
You see her eyes.
My mother always loves me and I love her and everybody loves everybody.
She always knows my name and comes home with us.
I love her so much."
Then she drew a bunch of squiggles and scribbles. When asked what a few of them were, here's what she said,
"It's my owl's toys."
"That's a big huge mountain! It's my mother's mountain."
"Present I'm going to give to my owl."
"That's my name. I tried to write my name, but it says nothing."
"Her [mom's] foot."
I just love my girls. These cards are precious. Thanks to all who wished me a happy mother's day. Being a mother has been my biggest responsibility and privilege ever and I'm so thankful I have the opportunity to be one. I like to tell people that I've found motherhood to be the job that I've always wanted, but never knew it until it happened.
