I choose motherhood

I choose lullabies in a rocking chair 
peanut butter and jelly sandwiches smeared on the wall
I choose worry wrinkles and laugh lines
sticky fingers and grass stains
I choose fairytales and dress up clothes
picnic blankets and dirt
I choose sprinkles and hotdogs
tears of worry and hugs of forgiveness
I choose ABC's and broken crayons
a handful of weeds and butterfly nets
Princess Alexis (8) and John Truman (15 m.)
I choose motherhood,

Love it! I made the same choice and I've never regretted it!
Cute babies you've got there. :)

There is so much we "give up" to choose motherhood - fancy homes, a chunky paycheck, expensive wardrobes, etc.... but motherhood is, by far, the best choice!!! Beautiful post, Maria!

Amen! I feel the same way! I'd much rather be in a roomful of babies than have an office job somewhere. I am so blessed to be a child care provider in my home and love up on these sweet little souls everyday! It may not look like much to others but I find it to be so rewarding.
