Thank Heavens For Moms!

My mother came to Provo for almost three weeks. I forget how much easier life is when your mom is around. Meals taste so much better, stress levels are down, babies' cries are softer and less frequent, stains come out of clothes instantly, kinder words are spoken and shopping is more fun when mom is around.

I wasn't the reason she came to Provo. Koby was the reason, I was a perk. I got to spend time on the tredmill next to hers bonding as we watched the Bachelor, run around the track too many times to count, but giving her booty random smacks as I passed her, shop with her, learn all I need to know about babies, nursing and all the other extra details you don't want to hear about, eat her amazing meals, visit family, and travel to and from the airport with her a couple of times.

My mom can sew anything, cook anything, shoot anything, clean anything and love anything/anyone. I love my mom and I am so glad she came to stay for three weeks! Thanks mom for all you do and did!

So exciting! Mom's are fabulous! I can't wait till my mommy comes. She'll be here in about 4 1/2 weeks for baby #2, not really for me but her grand kids. It's still so crazy to say that!

I love the juxtaposition of the picture with the baby and then the picture with the gun. So classic. Your post explains a lot about how you became your wonderful self!
