Just Like A Real Mom

WeeBall practice started on Tuesday. It was hysterical! An ambulance drives by and the whole team stops to watch:) Levi had a ball (sorry about the goofy pun). I was a little worried that he would be nervous since he didn't know the coach or other kids on the team, but he was fine. My brave little guy:) He's so excited about being on a team and we had the best time watching him. The funniest part for me though came at the end of practice when the sign up sheet was past around for providing snacks. As I picked a day and signed my name I thought "wow, I'm signing up for snacks just like I saw my mom do a million times....just like A REAL MOM!" How long does one have to be a mom before one stops having these little lightbulb "I'm a mom" kind of moments:) Or do they just go on and on as the kids get bigger - "wow, I'm a mom," "wow, I'm the mom of a preschooler," "wow, I'm the mom of a kid who can read" and on and on? Whatever. I'm having a great time!

Oooh, a mother-in-law...that'll be fun:) And a grandma. My mom seems to be enjoying that even more than she enjoys being a mom (and that's really saying a lot b/c she's always seemed to LOVE being a mom. I think her attitude about her kids has a lot to do with why I look forward to having a large family. She just always made all three of us feel like we just *made* her whole life - still does:)

that is a hoot, BECAUSE, I did the same thing when I signed up for snacks last year!!! I wonder if our moms did that too? wow, I'm a mom, I kissed on owie / let her puke on me / wiped her nose with the underside of my t-shirt / loved the wet kiss / got up in the middle of the night to change the sheets for the second time / etc!!
