Mommy Love - A Mother's Day Giveaway

I could barely wait until I was one.
Because mine did it so well.
She had the answers to EVERYTHING, she made the best pancakes called "clouds" (that is how light and fluffy there were)
She helped me grow and change and yes we had the infamous teenage "rough patch" but she never once gave up on me.
She was there when I needed just about anything.
Even when I didn't know what that "anything" was, she was there somehow knowing...
Always knowing, helping, inspiring.
and loving.
And I love her now more than I ever thought I could.
Because I am one too.
A Mommy.
My story is different.  I have two boys.  She had two girls. Twins actually.
My twiny and my Sweet Mommy.
My boys are not twins but they are close enough.  12 months and 5 days exactly.  On most days it feels like twins.  And I love this because it reminds me of my childhood, my experiences with someone who was on the same playing field.  She got me and I got her and we too had the "rough patch"  She was way to smart and responsible for me to "hang" with her.  I mean like OMG right...  But deep down I admired her, her ability to stand up to anyone, her confidence, the smart way she handled everything.  Yet, without a doubt she was and still is my best friend.
And now she is a Mommy too.
Me and Evan with my sis and her little man.

Also to a boy.  A beautiful blond headed mess of a boy, who I love just as if he were my own. and if it is possible I think I admire her even more.  Because one of her biggest strengths is how she nurtures, how she loves, how she would do anything for anyone. 
And guess who taught her....


And so here we are.
Three Mommies. 
And I love them so much.
They still teach me, help me and love me.
And I am so grateful, so blessed and so honored I get to be on this journey with them.
