Why I am What I am....

A SAHM Mom

Because I can't imagine anyone else doing my job better than me.

I can't imagine anyone else waking my sweet babies or tucking them in at night.

Because I can't imagine anyone feeding my baby first thing in the morning and getting all the snuggles....

Because I can't imagine anyone else seeing all the FIRSTS
First grin, giggle, roll, food, push up, crawl, walk, word...

Because I'm selfish and want them all.

I want all the hugs....the kisses...as snotty and slobbery as they may be.

Because I want to be the one they run to when happy or scrape a knee.

I want to be the one waiting at home with cookies and a glass a milk to hear all about their day....I want the first version not the pass down b/c it's been told a million times version already.

Because I don't want to miss all the sweet nursery rhyme songs sung off key at random times during the day.

I don't want to miss the 'nature' walks with my sweets pointing out all the bugs or planes flying by.

Because I don't want someone else to see the pure bliss on my child's face as they fly a kite.

Because I don't want someone else teaching my child the itsy bitsy spider w/o me.

Because I want to be the one who's smile they see first thing after their long nap.

Because I want to be the one that tickles them until they squeal.

Because I want to be the one they reach their little arms up to to be picked up.

Because I want to be the one invited to the Tea Party dressed as a Princess or Fairy.

Because I don't want to miss this....the way they love each other....

I don't want to miss one single second of their days....I can rest and have "me" time when my sweet babes leave my nest...until then...give me it all!!

This is just perfect:) I am not a mom, but I do know that SAHM moms get a bad rap sometimes and I can only imagine that its both the hardest and most rewarding job in the world!
