Happy Day To Be A Mother

Posted: Saturday, May 8, 2010 by Kelli Barrett in

I have been a mom now for 10 years! WOW!!!

I really never thought about having babies. I have friends that tell me that all they ever wanted was to be a "mommy". All I ever wanted to do was to go on tour with a rock band - babies just didn't seem to fit into that fantasy. My Mom would just laugh and remind me that the only way I would become a groupie was over her "damn dead body"!

My mom is awesome! She is a strong, independent, sensitive, sassy, opinionated, smart and loving - she taught me a lot. I would say that I am a lot like her - just sassier and more opinionated!

My boys are amazing! I just can't even imagine what my life would be like without them. I have learned so much from these two little boys - things that only they could have taught me.

Here is a bit of what I have learned over the past 10 years:

  • That baby vomit doesn't actually taste that bad -
  • That my two-year-old can throw a right hook that would take Tyson to one knee
  • That my child will not "die of malnutrition" from eating only Fruit Loops and Chicken Nuggets
  • That I get excited every day at 3:15pm as I wait for the boys to get off the school bus
  • That if I want 14 kisses all I have to do is ask
  • That Mythbusters, Deadliest Warrior, Ninja Warrior, Star Wars and Indiana Jones are actually pretty cool shows
  • and That I really LOVE being their Mom!
