2012 Moment of Joy
2012 Moment of Joy
01/09/2013

I did not have to think long about a moment of joy in the past year. I can honestly say that the moment my baby girl was born, healthy, kicking and screaming, was the very first moment of pure joy that I've probably ever felt. Other happy moments in my life (and there have been plenty!) pale in comparison. Remembering the first moment I heard her voice brings tears to my eyes.

Don't get me wrong, there have been many moments in the 9 months since she was born where I have been tired, exasperated, sore, more tired, and wishing my husband had boobs so that he could help with feeding her. However, I am very lucky to be home with her all day, every day, to watch her smile, learn new things, and I am able to respond when she calls out, "MAMAMAMAMA". I have a husband who works hard to provide for us, and it just doesn't get any better than this.

Thank you, Dr. Laura for giving me and all stay-at-home moms encouragement. I have made myself an "inspiration" quote board, where I have written down some of the things you've said on the air. This way, I can get a little pick me up when I'm feeling overwhelmed or when I feel like I'm wasting my education. Your constant reminders that there is no more important job in the world than being "mommy" always do the trick!

P.S. Even after the baby, I can do 10 real pushups...so the new goal has to be 20! Thanks again.
