Yesterday was a wonderful day and a day I have been awaiting for a long time! My thoughtful and crafty husband and two sweet babies made me a apron to wear while I cook. Eric said he wanted to make me a keepsake for my first Mother's day. Eric found a poem that he wrote along the edge of the apron and then put Evan and Eden's footprints on the inside. The poem was just perfect for the way I feel about being a mom and when he read it to me we were both crying.
Evan and Eden are a blessing and as Eric likes to say, "I love the snot out of them!"
Here is the poem that is on the apron:
FIRST MOTHER'S DAY
Little girls have always dreamed,
Of one day being grown;
Of having a home and family,
And children of their own.
As little girls they played the games,
With dollies cuddled near;
Of being grown up Mommies,
And now that day is here.
For cuddled sweetly in her arms,
Of the little girl now grown;
Is the sweetest dream she ever dreamed,
Two babies of her own.
In all the years of growing up,
In the games that little girls play;
None will ever be so sweet,
As her very first Mother's Day.
* Also, Evan has six teeth. Three on top and three on bottom. The seventh tooth should be here any day.
