I just wanted to stick up a few cellphone pics from today because it's one I want to remember. Not because anything monumental happened but because these faces are everything to me. I am in it, in the middle of what I always daydreamed being a mama would be.
It's not the carpool lines, the basketball practices or the fixing dinner with music playing....it's the sweet words, the little prayers, the snuggles, the love- all the good stuff. It's the conversations that mean everything. The little things they say and ask. The way they love you and the way they know how they hold your heart.
Aiden had his last basketball game of the season and my mama heart was beaming. Not because he scored the first point of the season or because of any of his skills- im proud because he has the biggest most precious tender heart in the world. With tears in his eyes he hugged his coach and told him how much hed miss him and how much this season meant to him. I love this kid so much, so proud to have the honor of being his mama. It's so amazing because I am watching him thrive, I am watching him soar.... and to think about all the worrying and the praying leading into sending him off to kindergarten.
I am a lucky girl. Just look at these faces :)
