mama

Hope has been very into reading books these days and one of her favorites recently has been "Hop on Pop". Everytime we get to the last page she points to the one character and says, "That's YOU Mama!"
The other day I studied the mama look alike and started to laugh. The frazzled hair, bags under the eyes, and kind of tired and pale face did bear some resemblance....

I have not been on my "A"game these days. Yesterday was a perfect example. I was laying on the couch, as part of my daily routine, when I thought about how I had not heard the phone ring all day. I decided to check my phone and here all my messages were going straight to voicemail. I listened to the messages and was surprised to hear the school seceratary was calling. She said Moses was very concerned that I was going to forget that today was early dismissal so she was calling to remind me. I looked down at the clock. I had two minutes to get to the end of the lane to catch the bus. I made it and was laughing on the way. What a mom! And what a son! He knows me too well...

Thinking and praying for you during this first trimester! I know the nausea all too well, and know what a struggle it is to be a wife and mom during it! Praying you are not discouraged through it!

I read this book to Edwin last night and thought of you when I got to this page. I think most every child could think this is their mom at some point in time. ;)
