One of my seven-year-old twins made me this card for my birthday last week. I love it. I don’t need anything more than this.
Life as a working mom of three young girls can be overwhelming. I’m always playing catch-up, trying my best to keep up with the demands but seemingly still falling short.
Sure, I know I’m important to my kids – but when one of them takes the time to tell me, it means the world.
On the weekend, I remarked to my other twin that she looked cute in a picture I’d taken. She looked at me and said, “You’re cute and brave and strong.”
“Like Wonder Woman!” I joked.
She agreed wholeheartedly.
I don’t see myself as any of those things. But there it is, the reward for all my hard work and sacrifice as a mother – I get to be Wonder Woman in someone’s eyes.
That’s pretty amazing.
