As you all know, I recently went on an amazing, mommy only vacation to Las Vegas.
I was afraid, and excited, and anxious, and sad, and happy, and guilty all at the same time.
Everything turned out fine and, honestly, I'm not even sure they really missed me all that much (combination of me not being gone all that long and their being left with the funnest person on the planet: their dad).
But, I did gain a better appreciation of what motherhood means to me.
Encouraging them to be brave.
Helping them maneuver through life's little messes.
Working thorough the hard times together.
Teaching them what it means to be a friend.
Giving them the chance to learn from their mistakes.
Letting them work through their problems on their own.
Laughing with them...
and, at myself.
Celebrating the big moments...
and the little ones too.
Being willing and able to forgive.
Being proud even when you know you have little to do with the fact that they are handsome, sweet, smart, funny, friendly, witty, clever, and cute.
Watching them grow up...
and knowing that you may not have always done the perfectly right thing, but you did the best that you could.
