Very First Mother's Day!
Mother's Day is always a fun time if you're are a kid fortunate enough to have a mother. You get to make little crafts and write notes about how much you love your mother and all the cool things she does for you. Of course I've never been a mother so I don't know how awesome it feels to celebrate being a mother while actually being a mother. I can however give you a little insight from my wife by doing a Mother's Day Interview on her very first Mother's Day!
Josh: So how does it feel to be a mother?
Kim: Huh? That's a strange question.
Josh: Why? I need to know how it feels from the mother's perspective.
Kim: Hmm. I guess I'll tell you, but you have to tell me what you said earlier when I wasn't paying attention.
Josh: Just tell me! It's for my blog!
Kim: OH!!! FOR THE BLOG?!?!?!? I LOVE IT! RORY'S MY FAVORITE GUY! HE SMILES! HE IS MY HEART! THAT'S EVERYDAY NOT JUST MOTHER'S DAY! IT'S SO FUN TO BE A MOTHER BECAUSE I ALWAYS WANTED TO AND NOW I GET TO. I JUST LOVE RORY WITH HIS LOUD ROARING IN CHURCH SERVICE. RAWR RAWR RAWR.
Josh: Thank you for the sound effects.
Kim: But.... He's getting so big.
Josh: Yes. That's what babies do.
Kim: I compare him to Aaron Jack and Gina Jo's baby, Rae, and Rory's like a giant! He's never going to be that small again.
Josh: Interesting. Now how do I write that? With a glistening tear in her eye, she ponders the size of her baby.
Kim: YOU WILL NOT WRITE ABOUT THE CRYING!
Josh: Fine. I'll write about it, but I'll promise you that you can have another baby someday that will be that small.
Kim: TRUUUST ME! I KNOW THAT! I'VE ALREADY PLANNED ON IT.... but it won't be Rory.
Josh: Oh... well I thought you knew how baby's worked. They tend to get bigger and grow up, ya know?
Kim: And another thing... I'd like him to stay still for one second so I can get his handprint to look like more than a smudge.
Josh: Yeah, well that's a lost cause. He is like a caffeine induced rabbit.
Josh: So, overall I'm getting the sense you like being a mother, right?
Kim: It's the best thing in the world. I love my baby boy more than anything in the world.
Happy Mother's Day Kim! You are an amazing mother and I love spending every waking, sleeping, breathing moment with you and Rory! You two are the best gifts God has given me! I love you both very much!
