Life as a mom isn’t bliss, it is actually harder work than I have ever done before. There is no time to yourself, rushing like a mad women to try to get everything done, tears from both you and your little, tantrums, fighting, food throwing, puke and poop, and so much more. There are smiles, giggles, loves, kisses, playing, tickling, riding toys, reading stories, and so many rewards. If you are new around her you probably don’t know that it took us a long time to get sweet King into our family. We tried to get pregnant for two and a half years and it was a hard struggle. King is a busy little boy, he tests my patience many times a day. He is very determined, strong willed, and stubborn. I think that it taking so long to have him be a part of our little family has made his little stinker traits that much more lovable. I appreciate every tantrum because that tantrum means that I have a little one running around and someone to call me mom after wanting a baby so badly. I appreciate every strong willed and stubborn moment. That strong willed little boy will one day do great things with being strong willed. It may test me, but I am hoping and praying that I can teach him to use it in the right way. Every puke mess and nasty diaper reminds me that I get to feed that little boy and take care of him every single stinking day. While some days are really hard, not a moment goes by when I am not grateful to have him in my home, happy to clean up messes, soaking in all the loves and kisses I can. That sweet boy, he is all mine and I couldn’t be more grateful for him.
