Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there!  This was a special Mothers Day for me because I got to spend it with my sweet little boy at home.  He surprised me yesterday and had a dozen beautiful red roses, a card, and chocolates delivered to our house.  He picked everything out all by himself.  They were absolutely perfect!  I hear he was very picky in what he picked out, it had to be just right.  He is one sweet and thoughtful little boy.

I remember the day I became a mother.  There arent words to describe the love I felt seeing Skyler for the first time.  He was perfect in every way.  That day changed my life for the better and I cant imagine life without him. 

I am so very grateful that I have gotten to spend nearly 5 years being his mommy. 

I just love being called mom by this amazing boy!

I also want to say Happy Mother's Day to my amazing mother.  She really is amazing and I dont know how I could have gotten through these past 9 months without her.  For the first 6 weeks or so after diagnosis she stopped working and lived at the hospital with me.  She spent countless nights sleeping in that very uncomfortable rocking chair, made sure I had everything I needed, read to Skyler while he was sedated, she made those horrific months easier for me with her presence.   She has always been there for me and for that I am so grateful.  She has taught me how a great mother should be.  I hope to be as good as a mother to Skyler as she has been to me.  I am so grateful that she is Skyler's grandma.  Skyler is one lucky boy!  Happy Mother's Day mom I love you with all of my heart!

Tear! your mom IS amazing. And ditto to the above. When I was flipping through Aussie books I purposely picked that mommy book for you because I imagine it is what Skyler would say if he wrote a book! Happy Mothers day!
