I Love Being a Mom!

I really do LOVE being a mother. And feel so lucky that I get to be with my kids all day, and they don't have to spend the bulk of their day with someone else. I'm glad that I have and enjoy the opportunity of being at home with them.
Today AJ and I got up, went for a 2 1/2 mile walk and then stopped a the park to play on the way home. We BOTH went down the slide, played on the teeter totter and talked and laughed together.
Later I pushed both he and Micaela on our swing set in our yard.
During this time Micaela informed me........."Mom, when I grow up, I want to be a famous ballerina and a school teacher." I told her I knew that she could be both and would be great at them. And then AJ, stuttering, trying to get his thoughts out said......
"And Mom......when I grow up.........I want to dance with Micaela and be a Grandpa!"
It was too cute.
I cherish my time with my children. They make me so happy!!

Shirlene, Chayli is wearing about a 4t in dresses. She actually fits in a 3, but because I like them longer, I tend to buy the bigger size.
