I love being a Mommy!!!!

I love being a Mommy for Moments like this.............
I love being a Mommy when I get to sit back and witness moments with Collin that I never thought that I would see. In this picture all you might see is a little boy playing on a DS but what a I see is an amazing little man that surprises me by doing things that we didn't think would be possible. Something as simple as playing on a DS is a huge accomplishment for him. He can not control the buttons well and really struggles with it BUT he understands it. His little hands wont do what he wants them to do. He can not play it well himself. He likes it when Jason or I play it and hit sits in our laps. His favorite game is Mario Cart. He understands it and gets so excited when we pass another car. He will start shaking and screaming. Just thinking about it brings tears to my eyes. Tonight Regan was playing the DS and Collin wanted it so bad. When Regan sat it down he got it, went into the dinning room, and hid under the table with it!!!! I LOVE IT!!!! If you had asked me almost nine years ago if I thought that this would ever be possible I would have told you no. One thing I have learned from him is that anything is possible. I LOVE being a Mommy because I get to witness moments like this!!!!



If that isn't good enough I get to finish a good day off with cuddles!!! I love being a Mommy because I get to have moments like this.


While I was cuddling Collin Regan came into the room dressed like this......

She had gotten into my closet and came out in a pair of my boots and hat. If that was not enough to make me smile she then proceeded to tell me that she was a model and started posing. She can ALWAYS put a smile on my face! I love being a Mommy for moments like this.
Then I got to end my day with a good book and cuddles. I love being a Mommy for moments like this.

What a sweet post.

I just wrote you an e-mail (got your e-mail address from Jodee C.) about maybe getting a few headbands from you.

Happy Mother's Day!
