She never quite leaves her children at home, even when she doesn't take them along. ~Margaret Culkin Banning

The other day I was getting together with my sister and an old friend from highschool. It was raining, cold and yucky outside. You know, usual January weather in Canada. Instead of walking to my sister's place, which is less than 10 minutes, I decided to drive. It was much easier to pack the 3 children (3 and under) into the van, then walk in that weather. When I arrived, my old friend and mother of a 21 month old said, "You are amazing!" My immediate response was "oh no...it's nothing. I'm not amazing". But right then and there I decided I was amazing. I am amazing. I will always be amazing. For getting 3 children out the door, for staying at home with them while running my business and my house, and for doing it with style. Even if that style means spit up on my shoulder, or syrup in my hair. Thank you Sam for recognizing me and all the moms out there for doing what we do everyday. It is AMAZING!

Here's a few cute photos of my amazing kids.

Here's an article I came across, which I found amusing and truthful!
