First of all, I want to take a minute to wish all the Mom's a Happy Mother's Day. Thanks you for visiting, following, commenting and supporting this blog. Thank you so much. If you are a first time visitor, welcome to you, too.
Today, I want to feature my first Guest Blogger, and spotlight the greatest Mom of all, mine. Meet Karla.
Even with the struggles of life, raising two (Me, and my sister, Devon) not so easy (at times) kids, she faces life with faith, strength and determination and is always there for us kids. I've learned alot from Mom, and I hope I've helped her along the way, too. I've asked her to think of some "Mom" stories, and I would share them here.
Take it away, Mom. :)
When Jeff was about 18 months old you really didn't like to take naps. I think he thought he might miss something. So...I went into put Jeff to bed in his crib only to find he had taken the screws out of two corners of the mattress. The mattress was hanging down. No way a nap was happening that afternoon.
Jeff was 2 and I was talking on the phone. I smelled smoke and ran into the kitchen only to find you by the toaster, fire blazing upward. He had put a napkin in the toaster, and tried to toast it. There was quite a blaze, I had to scrub down the kitchen before his Dad got home.
Jeff was probably 3 when this happened. He had graduated into a twin bed. When he took a nap, so did I. I woke up and he had crawled up on my bed and you were hugging me saying, "I love you, feet baby". He couldn't say his "S's" yet, but he was working on it. That's what I always said to you when I put him to bed. This memory is one of the most precious to me.
My daughter Devon, was a preemie born at 7 months and weighed only 3 lbs 6 oz. at birth. She was about 1 yr. when I couldn't find her anywhere. There was a large "Huggies" box in the living room that I had emptied and she crawled into it and pulled the top
back over her. I had no clue she was in there until she popped out. She laughed, I was just very relieved to find her.
Thanks Mom. I love you. Happy Mother's Day. :)
I know there are times that Mom's wish they could stop time and keep precious moments just as they are, but time marches on. Things change, and people grow up, but let's and create a time capsule of Great Mom Moments here. I'd like you to leave a quick story about you as a Mom, or about your Mom. It can be fun, heart warming or both, but let's take a minute and share. Thanks.
