My Mothers Day

I had a really nice Mother's Day. Scott let me sleep in on Saturday and Sunday (my love language....sleep is a love language right?) which was such a treat! The day felt like it was more about Campbell getting dedicated and I wouldn't have that any other way. It made for a really special day for me!
After church we all went to lunch at a delicious Italian restaurant in downtown Bentonville and I had one of the best meals I've had in a really long time. After lunch we came home, my parents and Grammy left town, I put Campbell down for a nap then snuck away for a little bit to shop and run errands.
I got home right when Campbell woke up from his nap so he didn't even know I was away. I came back with a delicious dinner for him. After he ate we played and read books then I gave him a bath, put him in his pajamas and nursed him for the last time. I cried before, during and after. I've told myself for a few weeks now that Mothers Day would be the last day. I had to give myself a cut off day and this day seemed appropriate. I really never imagined I would nurse for this long but I somehow just kept going. I'm so thankful for that precious time Campbell and I had together and I'm looking forward to our new bedtime routine of books, prayers and singing him a few sweet songs. 
I'm so thankful to be a Mommy. I've always longed to have this job. I was never the girl who dreamed of having a big career. All I've ever wanted in life was to be a wife and mother. I wanted my painted house where I could plant flowers, cook meals, do laundry, and raise my babies. That was my life's ambition and I'm so lucky that I'm doing exactly what I always hoped and wished for. I absolutely wouldn't trade it for anything. It may seem very simple and uneventful to some but I am so happy doing what I do. I always prayed that I could be mother and I'm so blessed that my prayers were answered.
