Tuesdays Ramblings….What does being a Mother mean to you?

What is the definition of a mother?
Mother – A mother is a woman who has conceived, given birth to, or raised a child in the role of a parent.
Being a mom is the most amazing job in the entire world. No woman can tell you what being a mother is like. You have to experience it for yourself first hand to truly the know the joy & unfathomable love this role carries.
What is the definition of motherhood?
Motherhood – The kinship relation between an offspring and the mother.
I think you can take “motherhood” a step further. It’s not only a kinship, it’s an eternal bond. The bond between a mother and her child is like no other. The emotional ties of knowing what your child needs when he or she needs it. The life giving ties of knowing you would lay your own life down for your child’s life. The protection ties of watching over your children while young and even when grown, thinking about them and wistfully wishing them a happy and healthy life. 
A mother is a fond word, one of great meaning and love. But it is also a word of countenance and respect. For each of us has a mother we should thank for giving us life…and kissing our cares away.

TRENDY THURSDAY ~ Diaper Bags Mom Love

Diaper bags…..are they in or are they out? Well mom, they are definately IN!

But, the styles mom are choosing nowadays are fun, funky and just plain cool.

Urban chic is certainly in. Bright colorful fabrics, beautiful prints, and bold stripes are at the top of the list.

Many moms are choosing to skip out on the store bought styles. More are choosing to find unique styles from fellow mom artists. Choosing one of a kind bags that they know no other mama will have at the weekly play group!

Choosing bags with loads of pockets is also still at the top of the list. With car keys, cell phones and baby’s things in tow, it’s still important to provide a special spot for all of these necessities. Most mamas’ are choosing not to skip out on this important aspect of the diaper bag.

So what about you mom? What style of bag do you love? And, why do you love it? We wanna know!

Parenting multiples is an incredible job. It has its rewards and its struggles, though the 1st helps you to overcome the latter. Basically, as mom to more then one baby at a time, you must become a sort of ‘human octopus’, if you will. No number of hands can ever be too many.

You are always racing to rescue somebody, or prevent somebody’s eyes from being poked, or hair being pulled, which at times, the recipient of the abuse, will indeed be you. That’s what you get for all of your love and sacrifice, hey? (Just kidding.) In canning the humor for a moment, it’s truly an amazing experience, and a joy that I never expected, but now can’t imagine living without.

Having two smiling faces looking up at you every morning with unconditional love in their eyes, is absolutely unexplainable. It really helps get you through the day. The chaos, the madness, the ripping off of bibs and now diapers.

As unequivocally petrified as I was when I found I was pregnant with twins, it has been one of the greatest 5 gifts of my entire life, and something that should you ever find yourself pregnant with twins, you should truly celebrate, and not fear so much. Don’t rob yourself of the joy and the beauty of a twin pregnancy, as did I. That is my biggest regret in hindsight.

If I can do it, despite all of my flaws, and love it beyond measure, so can you to! As I always say, ‘God makes no mistakes…only miracles’, and I thank him every day, for mine.
