Mom,I sure do love my babies—and the guy who wrote such a sweet message for them! I am a lucky girl, indeed. I know this post is more than a week late, but here's hoping you had a wonderful Mother's Day, too!
Dad says that you are amazing and love us a whole lot. He thinks that you are the best mom in the world. Of course, we already knew all that! You care about every little sad noise we make and try to help us feel better. You change our dirty diapers with glee. There are many times that we feel like crying in the night, whether we have ouchy tummies or are just bored. But whatever reason we have, you run to our side and comfort us. And obviously, there was that whole time when you did everything in your power to keep us developing safely and soundly inside you—probably the most difficult thing ever. We are so very grateful to have you as a mommy! And we know that Daddy feels exactly the same as we do about all this stuff. So even though we're cranky at times, thank you so much for continuing to love us and care for us and mold us into happy, healthy, and very intelligent individuals. Happy Mother's Day!
Isaac, Lucia, Jude, Dahlia (and Dad)
