Top Ten Tuesday

To my sweet baby boys:

10 Things I Want You to Know About Your 30-years-old Mother
  1. I think friendship is important and I try my best to demonstrate to others how much their friendship means to me.  I'm not sure if I'm always successful, or are sometimes too subtle.  I hope that you someday find intense value in being a good friend to others.
  2. I dream of what you will someday be/do/love.
  3. I am crazy about your father.  And not just a little bit....a whole lot.
  4. You each have a certain cry that kills me.  Everytime I hear it, it takes every ounce of strength I can muster up not to just give in to you.
  5. I have dreams of my own that have absolutely nothing to do with you, except that I hope you can share in my joy when they come into fruition.
  6. I love my job, even when I say I don't like it and have a really bad day....I even love it then.
  7. Sometimes I wonder if other mothers could possibly love their children as much as I love you, and why more people don't talk about how overwhelming and consuming it can be.
  8. I hate doing things outside of my comfort zone, but once I do I realize that they aren't nearly as bad as I thought they were.
  9. My favorite color is green.
  10. When I put you to bed I always play my Pandora "Hymns" station.  It seems completely out of character for me, but something about singing along to the hymns of my childhood while putting you to sleep totally makes me happy.

well, your blog is just full of great ideas today! I loved your letter to yourself and now I love this list of things you'd like the boys to know about you.

my parents aren't the journal-keeping types and i always wish there was a way for me to know more about who they were when I was growing up, outside of my view of them as mom & dad.
