the newness has yet to wear off.

the newness of being his mommy.

the newness of being mommy to them all.

waking up each morning to their tiny voices.

going to bed each night feeling fulfilled and at peace.

the reality of my ‘job’ as their mommy still feels new.

the knowledge of my importance in their life… still new.

how much they need me when they’re sick, want me when they’re well, and love me — fresh and new.

i’m still their super hero but they are the ones that saved me.

i hope it always feels this new and exciting and a little bit scary.


being this in-love makes me feel complete and so very special.

  3. The scenery changes. The feelings change. Their perpspective changes. They grow up and get wings. The reality that you are thier mom and will always love them never changes. The thing that changes the most along the way is you.
