My First Mother's Day

Mother's Day started out a little silly.  There I was, 6am, with a baby nursing on me, and all I could think was "this still doesn't seem real".  I turned to Dan and told him how I was feeling, and he agreed.  After six wonderful months with our baby Daniel, sometimes I can't believe how much life has changed for us.  Do all parents feel this way, and if so, for how long?

Daniel's present to me was three separate spit ups down my bra, so I can feel the love!  Dan surprised me with a beautiful card that he made himself. He stayed up late the night before and used my stamping and paper craft supplies all without me knowing.  It was so sweet and I know he put his heart into it, which is the best kind of present.

I feel so thankful for all of the mothers that welcomed me into their secret club this year.  The support, sympathy and celebration that I have received makes me proud to call myself "mommy". 


  1. Yes, all mother feel this way. I don't know when it started seeming real and not a dream. I am grandmother now. Jan. 2010. I am 50 and at times I still feel 20... It just depends. Happy 1st Mother's Day to you.


  2. Happy Mommy's day. The first one is so much fun!

    I gave you a Sweet Blogger award at my blog, cause your blog is so sweet. Come see!


  3. Oh my gosh, the card! So sweet :)

    I would say it was about when Marah was around 2 that I stopped thinking this seemed so surreal LOL Really though, I would find myself looking at the toys scattered about at the end of the day, able to picture in my mind how Jenna may have played with a certain doll or whatever, and just think of how weird it was that I had kids. Now, with Alex, I find myself constantly thinking how strange it is that we have a boy. :)
