amazing mama.

Being a mama means reading books even when you are sleep deprived and have a pile of laundry to do.


Being a mama means teaching your child about ducks and the sound they make when they talk to each other.


Being a mama means packing lunches after bedtime and making sure there are enough fruit and veggies in his little tummy.


Being a mama means giving your son hugs and kisses immediately when you walk in the door because he has missed you while you were away for a much needed weekend with the girls.


Being a mama means learning all of the popular children's song and singing them even when you are out with your friends and there are no children around.


Being a mama means giving baths and changing dirty diapers even when you don't have time to give yourself a bath... or change your own diaper!


Being a mama means teaching your friends about what it takes to be an amazing mama like this one...


Erin and I have been friends for nearly ten years. She has been my roommate, drinking buddy, Bachelor watching, advice giving, clothes sharing, bottled water drinking friend who has always been by my side- even now when we live millions of miles apart.

Since becoming a mama, Erin has truly taught me what it means to be completely selfless and what it looks like to put someone else before yourself no matter what the circumstances. She has shown me how to overcome obstacles and scary situations that we never thought we would have to deal with. She is loving and kind and supportive and intentional with her actions. Without knowing it she has become my role model and the type of mama I hope to be one day.

Thank you to all of the amazing mamas out there. You have no idea what an inspiration you are to us and I hope you know YOU ARE DOING AN AMAZING JOB!!!!
