Today is Mother's Day. I have spent a lot of years celebrating this day a lot of different ways, pregnant, chasing a toddler, grieving, about to give birth, and now with two kids, not babies, not even really a kid and a baby, but really two full on kids (or at least as much as a 2 yr old is a kid), today my heart is very full.
Today the kids each gave me their sweet hand made gifts and we walked down to the theater, enjoying a brisk but sunny walk through town. Who needs to drive when you can walk. We passed a lot of litter a long the way, but I had forgotten a garbage bag. My Bug though spent the walk telling me exactly why litter is so bad and why people need to stop doing it. My heart swelled knowing I am raising him right.
All in all I am proud and joyful watching my kids grow on this Mother Day. They will be part of a new hopefully much more Green generation.
The day ended with my almost 2 yr old nursing in my arms while we cuddled on the couch. That was the best moment of all!
