Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things about REBECCA

13 Ways I Can Tell I Am A Mother:

1. I've learned all the words of all the Nick Jr. cartoon theme songs, not so much because I was trying to, but more because of constant repetition.

2. There is at least one toy in EVERY room of my house.

3. There is at least one picture of a beautiful blonde haired, blue eyed girl in EVERY room of my house.

4. My daughter hands me a grass weed out of the yard, proudly proclaiming that it's a beautiful flower, and I actually see it no differently.

5. I have twelve dozen of the beforementioned weeds in "vases" around my house.

6. I have sucked up at least a million rocks in my vacuum.

7. Someone can hand me $500 and the first thing I think of is "what does my daughter need/want?"

8. I would honestly rather spend time with my daughter than do anything else in the world.

9. I gave up my awesome red sports car and opted for a 4-door Camry.

10. I've made it my business to collect ALL the Disney movies on DVD.

11. Nothing makes my heart jump more than to hear her say "I love you, Mommy, and you're my best friend in the world."

12. Nothing saddens me more than to know that one day that will change.

13. There's not a night that goes by that I don't say a prayer, thanking God for my miracle and asking Him to help keep her healthy and safe and help me be the best mom I can be.

I have to comment on #11. My daughter is 20, almost 21 and I still hear,"I love you, Mom. You're my best friend." It brings tears to my eyes, a lump in my throat and makes my heart swell!
