Being a mom is my greatest joy. My girls mean everything to me and each and every day I am so thankful for my girls. For Kaila my creative 10 year old, Brooklin my spunky 6 year old and there’s the baby in the family, Mia. Having three girls my time is often in short supply. Between work, their activities and our lives I have to make every moment count. I try to show them just how much I love them in all the little things that I do each and every day.
My kids will never full appreciate me waiting in the school pickup line forty five minutes before school gets out just to be sure I was there to get them to dance class on time, or making sure their lunch has the perfect shaped sandwich so when they open their lunchbox at school they smile knowing they have their favorites.
She will never know that I set my alarm 10 minutes earlier on school days to make sure I have enough time to get her hair perfect. Plus as parents we never get sick days and yet it’s those things we do that are ordinary each and every day that I learned means so much to our kids.
Brooklin telling me that I was an Unstoppable Mom means everything to me. I cry tears of joy each time I think about how proud I am of my girls. Telling her I love her is just not enough and I know that she feels how much I love her because the moments that mean so much to me also mean so much to her. As parents we can feel guilty and anxious and even often unsure but I feel most unstoppable when I see my kids happy.
I like doing things that we all enjoy together. I enjoy running in my own time, it makes me feel unstoppable and ready for my day. My girls get to see me run half marathons and go hiking, and I might even stop to dance along the way. I think allowing my daughters to see me live and love life and work hard at something will only help teach them that anything is possible. Seeing that pure joy in their eyes means everything to me and truly does make me feel unstoppable.You Can Still Create Your Own Storybook Cover –
