So what makes a mom really a mom? Is it caring that dear child for nine months, giving birth, changing diapers, singing Jesus Loves Me 20 times in the middle of the night, reading When You Give a Mouse a Cookie every-other day, potty training, counting 100 pushes on a playground swing, or brushing and making millions of adorable pigtails hung with bows over time? Well, to tell you the truth all those may make me a mom, but today I officially FELT like mom.
Emma took her first birthday treats to school today. That's right, making birthday treats for all her school buddies truly stamped MOM on my forehead! Just tell me where to sign up for the PTA now, I'm ready. ;)
Emma on the way to school today, "Mom, I just can't believe I'm going to be 5 tomorrow!"
Me neither, honey....me neither.
