Because I said so ... that's why!

I love being a mother.

I love all the things that mothers get to do.
I love tucking Jacob into bed.
I love kissing his tears away.
I love the look in his eyes when he figures something out for the first time.
I love hearing him snore.
I love when he climbs into bed with me in the middle of the night.
I love when he tells me he loves me.
I love when he tries to take care of me.
I love that he thinks I make the best chocolate milk.
I love that he is cranky in the morning.

I love being a mother.

But the one thing that never occurred to me before I had a child was all the funny things you get to say. Things I thought I would never say in a million years.

*Did you flush the toilet? Because if I go in there and you didn't flush the toilet you are grounded!

*Jacob stop pretending you are John Cena!

*Put your underwear on the right way

*No! I don't like it when you give me a wet willy

*Why did you draw on your stomach?

*No little boys cannot watch The Simpsons or The Family Guy!

*Who's the boss? No Jake you are not the boss. I am the boss.

*Yes you have to brush your teeth.

*No you cannot quit school. You are in kindergarten.

*What are you eating? No a handful of Pringles and a Pixie Stik are not breakfast.

*I am not your maid!

*You are making yourself burp, you cannot burp like that off of chocolate milk.

*No you cannot tell your teacher what color my underwear is!

Everyday I am thankful for him despite the funny things I get to say.
To all the mother's out there have a Happy Mother's Day!

Walk in His Strength
