Since the day you were born you have brought such love, wonder and frustration to my life. It's the love and wonder that make all the frustration worth living through.
I know I've not been a perfect mom. There have been days where I was so low I did not recognize that we are in this together. But I honestly do not think a perfect mom exsists.
Now that you are six and finding your independence every little thing becomes a battle. Sometimes you are so stubborn I can't help but laugh. Watching you grow and become your own person is a greater joy then I ever thought possible.
This Thursday, I am thankful life has given me the challenge of being your mother. I love you more then coffee. More then books and more then chicken nuggets. I only hope that one day you realize that all I do (like grounding you) I do out of love.
