A Very Serious Mother’s Day (but not really)

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there and all the moms-to-be, the first-timers and to those special women who may not have their own children but are moms to many. You are special, loved and appreciated. Enjoy today.

I set out to get these runts to smile on Easter, which is never an easy feat. Taking photos of other people’s kids is a different skill set than taking photos of your own, and while I do both often, I don’t do family photos with all of them usually. As it turned out, this “serious face” photo was one of my favorites of our 5-minute stop on this bridge. Those punks are mine.

I am so very blessed to have the love and support of a caring husband and a thousand tiny kisses from my four sweet kids. Without them, life would stand still. They are what carry me through each day and force me out of bed each morning. I love each and every one of you. Thank you for making me Mom. I can’t imagine anything else I’d rather be.
