Sometimes I'm frantic and frumpy.
Sometimes I'm loud and outspoken.
Sometimes I'm patient and caring.
Sometimes I'm hard as nails.
Sometimes I'm brushing hair and kissing boo-boos.
Sometimes I'm organizing toys and hiding things in the trash.
Sometimes I'm lecturing on rules and cleaning spilled cereal.
But, all the time I'm in love with three precious little people.
All the time I'm wishing them the rainbows and unicorns and dinosaurs of their magical imaginations.
All the time I'm aching to see the people they grow to be.
And, all the time I'm grateful and blessed to be their mother.
