Happy Mother's Day

I hope that you all have a blessed Mother's Day.

If I could, I would send you all a copy of this book. It is about cherishing the lasts...

the last time your baby crawls across the floor with his blankie
the last time he wears a baseball uniform
the last time she crawls between the two of you in bed
the last time he goes of to school.

It made me cry because you oftentimes don't realize it is a last while it is happening.



Wishing you moments of connecting with your family today.

Oh, how I wish I would have written then all down! All of a sudden I can't pick them up, and all of a sudden they're so grown-up! But I did cherish them climbing into bed with me this morning :) Thank you, God, for that! Hopefully, there's more of that to come! If not, I did cherish every moment :) Happy Mother's Day, Not-so-Transparent Mama!

I can't wait to pick up a copy of this book...so funny, bc I thought I was the only mom that really thought about those "lasts"...all the baby books have space for the "firsts", but the memories that are burned in my mind and on my heart are the "lasts"...last time nursing/bottle (I did both), last time carrying across a street, last time crawling in bed...oh, so nostalgic, and you're right, moms usually don't realize it when it truly is a "last"!
