Mother's Day

I debated about whether to write a post about today given there are so many that find this day so difficult for many number of reasons. But I felt it was important to archive today so when we look back we can remember what our first Mother's Day was like.

Today has been nothing like a planned or expected. "Jackson" gave us both presents this morning with sweet cards that told us we were the best Mommies in the whole world. We got a lot of nice Facebook messages, emails, phone calls and texts wishing us a Happy Mother's Day. That was really the extent of our Mother's Day celebration. Amy has been sick since early last week and Jackson has been sick since Thursday so today was full of a lot of naps and soothing. The poor babe is all stuffed up, is coughing and sneezing and just seems plain miserable. In spite of all that he's still been able to keep his spirits high and even give us a few smiles and giggles today. He's been sleeping int he swing most of the day and will sleep in out room in the swing tonight. We've tried inclining his mattress but even still soon as we lay him down he starts having coughing fits. We feel so helpless and hope he gets over this quickly.

Even though today was nothing like I expected looking after our sick little boy has truly made me feel like a mother more than anything else today.

That's what it's all about - the hard times, the fun times, the mopping of brows, and changing of diapers!
You mamas rock!
