Motherhood: 18 months experience
There is no doubt, being a mom is the toughest job a woman could ever love. It is an old and tired clique, but so true! Zoey turned 18 months last week and I am so proud. Like every mom, I think she is the most beautiful and smart girl alive. Of course that is bias. I just get so excited by her willingness to learn. We are working on the alphabet now. She makes a sound and points to letters that are anywhere: handwritten, in a book, on a shirt, her name train, foam letters in the bathtub... No, all the sounds are not to the correct letter, but she realizes that letters make sounds, which I think is pretty awesome to start! We love doing crafts and reading books and watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (Oh Toodles!). Seeing Zoey light up when she figures something out, or carries a toy all the way across the room to shoe me, or dance to a good song is the best reward and always makes my day. Yes, being a mom is hard work, but also so much fun and I wouldn't trade it for anything!
