...I have been a mother. It seems so strange to say this because I don't FEEL like it's been 10 years since I became someone's mom. In fact, I was just told by a perfect stranger the other day that I don't look old enough to have 1 child let alone three! (Thank you, stranger. I will cherish this remark for years to come!) Sometimes I still feel like I'm playing house and these kids are going to be picked up by their real parents at any moment... (there are times I wish someone WOULD come to pick them up... just for a while... only so I can sit and stare at the wall in complete silence. I actually remember when I used to do that. I used to be BORED!) But I digress.
Blake is entering the age where I have to be careful not to embarass him in front of his friends. Luckily, when no one is looking he still snuggles in for a hug whenever I stop to catch my breath. I don't EVER want that to change. shhh... don't tell.
