Being THE Mom

Gosh, the more I experience mommy-dom, the more I find I love it.

The Princess is the mighty SIX! She was the beauty queen for the day. She went to the beauty parlor for an "Up-DO," then Charlotte the Great added a splash of "Princess" with a sequined baby blue dress. She wore a crown and enjoyed a pinata and barbeque with her family.

My little man, when asked, "Are you a big boy?" replied, "Like Daddy." Then, after a moment of thought, he raised his arms above his head and announced, "I'm huge!" Indeed, he is.

My other little beauty queen says she loves me "infinity squared," and I'm her "best mom."

My oldest has followed through on getting a "grown-up" job and doing well. He tells me he's had "no attendance issues." Whew!

The actor is busy enjoying summer and making friends as he prepares to enter HIGH SCHOOL!

There is no greater joy than to watch a child grow from someone so incapable to someone with determination and in pursuit of their dreams. To witness the learning process...holding up their head, coordinating their limb movement, discovering their hands, feet...those first steps, words, and sentences. Dreaming of movie stardom or Beauty Queen. Developing social skills and just living life.

I've been a mom for 19 years and I am still inspired with awe at the miracle. I look at my oldest and am fascinated by the transition from infant to "man". I cry when I see him driving a car. It is the most incredible emotion and sense of being one can ever experience.

I love being a mom!
