Ode to Momma

The older I get, the smarter she gets. When I was in high school, my mother didn't know anything. Once I got to college, I started to realize that she was pretty smart. Now, as a semi-adult, she's a genius! I mean, for all intensive purposes, she's a doctor, chef, parenting consultant, pregnancy coach, psychiatrist, counselor, homemaking extraordinaire, gardener, etc, etc, etc. I love you, Mom. Thanks for all you do.

I experienced those same feelings about my momma. Oh how we grow and mature! I have numerous times apologized to my mom for the way I treated her back in high school! Once your little one is born you will call on your mom for wisdom even more often. After our first was born and my mom came to help for a few weeks, the day she left I cried and cried and told her she couldn't go, I wouldn't know what to do when she was gone. We are so blessed to have such wonderful mothers. :) Congrats on your pregnancy, I hope it hasn't been too difficult on you.

Oh so true. I look at my 9 year old daughter and realize she thinks I know NOTHING at this point in her life. ;)

Actually, the phrase is, "for all intents and purposes."
