Sweet Wonderful You

Yesterday, I received the honor of being crowned the 2014 Tuscarawas County Mothers of Multiples Mother of the Year.  I have a been a member of the club since 2011.  After having the twins, I needed support and friendship from people who understood what was happening in my life.  I found Tuscarawas County Mothers of Multiples in a Google Search, contacted their president, went to a meeting, and then jumped in with both feet.  Incidentally, the first meeting I went to was a Mother of the Year banquet.  Now, I get the honor of holding the title for the next 12 months.

It is customary for the Mother of the Year's family to come to the banquet.  However, we live about 25 minutes from the meeting place and we have evening meetings.  I didn't want my children to miss their bedtime, nor did I want John to have to deal with 3 grumpy wee-people.  So, John sent our chairperson a list of reasons why the children love me.  I expected that.  He wrote some wonderful things about me too.  I didn't expect that.  He blew me away.

Aren't they the sweetest?  Who knew they cared about all the little, every day things?

Thank you, babies.  Thank you, John.  It's so easy to love the four of you.  You make loving fun.
