Mommie's Day

Wow I have been in the "Mommy Club" (the really fancy one, where you initiation gift is a certificate for a guarantee that your purse will forever be full of milk/juice crackers etc. long after the bottles have left) for three and a half years now. I know I haven't really been that good at documenting here what has transpired, but maybe you've gotten a glimpse of how much fun we have. Murphy has changed our lives into something magical (believe me it isn't all magical, the tantrums and being screamed at by a toddler don't really fit into that area - but it's like birth, somehow even through the pain you know you would do it again {given the chance - ahem Josh}) every day with the little monkey we "discover" brand new things - did you know that worms are all related and should be put in a pile so that they can be acquainted with one another? Me neither.

I just want to say to all of you lovely women out there (some that I know and many I don't) Happy Mother's Day, may your journey down this road be full of wonder, excitement & love.

And to Murphy my love - thank you for making me a part of this day, you make me giggle and look at things completely different than I would have ever thought to.

Hey babe, don't worry I didn't forget you - thank you for creating our family - I love you. We joke a lot that we don't have "movie love" - but i don't think anyone in the movies has what we have.

Oh and lastly, Mom (of course I saved the best for last), Happy Mom's Day. You have shown me a shining example of what a mom should be, you have been there through every thing in my life whether you knew how to be or not - you were always there. Thank you - I love you.
