I could write millions of words about the things that these three kids do to my heart and soul. I love them in all the cliched ways every mother talks about, and in so many non-cliched ways that is unique to each child.
I think I always wanted to be a mom because it was never a question for me. Growing up I loved being around babies, and my own much younger sisters provided reinforcement for that. Babysitting and working in day cares, I formed bonds with the kids I cared for. But nothing could prepare me for the earth shifting quality of love I feel for my own kids.
Even though it's two days after Mother's Day, I wanted to wish all mothers a happy day because really when you're a mom, every day is Mother's Day.
