Dear Emma and DJ,
Honestly, I hadn’t thought about writing a Mother’s Day post because I get so emotional when I think about the two of you. As a I sit here and cry while I write this letter, its actually hard to put into words how the two of you make me feel from day to day. I don’t think the word GRATEFUL is enough, God blessed Daddy and I with you all (Darrick II included) and I will admit in the beginning we had no clue, and there are still days we don’t have a clue but we know that you two are counting on us so we keep pushing…for you two!
Some days this journey is easy, you both are all smiles! And other days its like I’m your worst enemy! I know you two are too young to understand it but no matter how bad you get or the hard times that come along…Mommy will still always be there. Right now I look forward to the kisses at bedtime, the random kisses when you break away from playing with each other. The giggles from running around the house, to the crying when you need me! I live for it all and again I am here for all of it.
But I know there will come a time when I am looking forward to your calls from college, or those times when you will consider me to be one of your best friends!
Watching you two grow brings me so much joy…its a blessing to see but also hard to see that time is going so fast (I wish I could slow it down a little)! To see your relationship blossom from Brother and Sister to best-friends! I pray that you two ALWAYS remain as close are you are today! No matter what goes on always know that Mommy and Daddy are here and you have each other!
I know this weekend is supposed to be a weekend of you all pampering me (including Daddy)…and you still can (LOL) but that doesn’t stop me from being all in my feelings about being your Mama. I know every day that I don’t get it right, sometimes I’m the one having the rough day but the smiles on your faces always brighten up my mood, or put the smile back on my face.
Although your father is the head of the family, its my job to look after you and the rest of the family to ensure we are all balanced. And in this I also THANK GOD daily for Daddy…he knows just as much as I do that this parenting gig isn’t easy but we are #TeamGodbott and we have gotten through some of the toughest times and biggest obstacles together and we will continue to let you two know that you are important to us and we will forever love you and support you with everything in us, even if its our last!
I’m not going to drag this out, but I wanted to tell you two that even at 5 and 2.5 years old that I am SUPER proud to be your Mama! I know I tell you I love you daily, but some days I put you in bed and wonder if you truly know or understand how much WE love you, you are truly the JOY of our life! God handpicked you #LittleGodbotts for us! You all are the best part of my being, my world! I am blessed to have you all!
Happy Mother’s Day!!!
