Wordful Wednesday

*Wordful Wednesday is for those of us that like to showcase a photo(s) but that just can't seem keep our mouths shut about it(them).

This week has a prompt....Motherhood.
What is means to me.

Being a mommy is a tough job, most of my readers know this.
It is messy...
from diapers to sick tummies to teaching themselves how to eat.
It is tiring...
from 1 am, 4 am and 7 am feedings to the 5th time out for the day before noon.
It is emotionally challenging...
from 5 weeks in the NICU to "Mommy I don't want you to go to work".
It is entertaining...
from first smiles to the first time they say "Mommy"
to the silly stories they come up with while doing the booty dance.
It is amazing!!!

This picture is a great representation of what motherhood means to me.

I love sitting back and watching my girls enjoy life.
Expressing the love they feel in their lives.

After all is said and done if you can look at your kids
at almost any given moment and see them happy,
you are doing your job.
Motherhood is a job.
The best job in the world in my opinion.

Head on over to Angie's Circus for more WW.
