Great Joy

Before I had children, I would often hear parents talk about what great joy their children brought them.  It is only when you have children yourself do you truly understand the true meaning of having your heart swell with joy when you witness your child grow.

The moment Bobby rolled over the first time, I cried.  I even asked myself why I was crying.  It was so amazing watching him learn something new and to see the expression on his face.

All by himself, my fearless child Nate, climbs the slide and slides down.  He walks into the school building like a big boy and rides train rides.  As I saw the train turn the corner with my baby, well I guess I should say toddler, I realized he is growing and being more independent.  I know I will always cherish his tiny waves and hugs. No matter how tired I am, I love to hear Nathaniel screaming for me, "Mom".  I never ever want that to stop.

I love being a mother and raising my children.  There are times when I am not sure what to do to help or teach my children, but my instincts always kick in and lead me in the right direction. That way is straight to my heart with joy.

Bobby is 6 Months

The Big B is six months old.  He is finally in his crib and sleeping upstairs with his big brother Nate.  Finally, I am getting more sleep and playing catch up with the Zzz's. 

 I may have forgotten to mention that Nate started a Mother's Day Out program/pre-school two days a week.  This gives me two days with one-on-one time with this little guy.  It is always a joy to see him laugh, smile, and play.  I am also the mom that buys a chalk board to write the "First Day of School" and then forgets actually write it and take the pictures.  Well, it is a memory I will have to save in my heart.  

Every post I vow to post more often.  Daily, I write posts in my head but never find the time to sit down to type them up.  Even though I am a stay-at-home mom, I do not understand how people how the time to post or even participate in so much social media.  My choice is to be a mom. In my spare time and when the boys get off to school, I will post as time allows.  

Until then, I am enjoying watching my boys learn and grow.
