A desperate love

Last night Abby had her first grade school play. She played the part of the rock star guitarist. She rocked it out.  I know she was nervous, because she told me so a few days before the play. "Mom I get up there and I just get kinda nervous." I told her to rock her little heart out and all will be well. And she did just that.

When I first saw her stand up and start rocking out, I couldn't help but choke back the tears. Yes, I am that Mom. Yes, I am crying at my daughter playing with a blow up guitar on stage. I can't help it. I just get so dang proud of my children. It's a desperate love.

Mac just graduated from his first year of preschool. When he walked on stage, my heart swelled up and I just want to bawl like a baby. Then he started to sing and dance...oh be still my heart!!!

That's just me I guess. My kids fart and I say "good one!!...now say excuse me"

See... I'm kind of ridiculous, but I just want my babies to know how much I love them, and how very proud I am of them, and how proud I am to be their Mama.

There is no other way to describe it...it's a desperate love.

a few of my April favorites

We are entertaining the idea of potty training Finn. hahaha..yeah right. He has NO desire to potty train. But he does look so incredibly cute dancing around in his big boy undies.

Mac enjoys chocolate milk. Really his favorite thing about it is the chocolate syrup. This is him being caught in the act of "drinking the syrup" Silly boy.
