My Hot Mess: My Bug

I speak of her often but I rarely share the beauty that is my hot mess, my Bug!  She is the skip in my step, the thorn in my side, the source of my constant laughter, the twitch in my eye, and the reason I don’t sleep some nights.  
This one is the one that keeps me hopping the most.  I have always longed for a blue-eyed, blonde-haired girl and I was blessed with Bug 5 years ago.  She’s a beautiful challenge.  She’s rambunctious, she’s incredibly active, she can be a bully (poor Bubby), she loves to sing and dance, and she is an amazing little creature that drives me crazy on a regular basis!  
It’s hard to capture her true beauty and spirit in pictures, kind of like lassoing the moon, but this time, I think I captured “her” and I wanted to share it with y’all.  She is beautiful, inside and out, and although she has caused me more wrinkles and grey hairs than any of the others, I’m sure you’ll agree, she’s worth every age-inducing minute of it!  
I love this hot mess and I feel honored to be her mother.  She showed me a side of her tonight that I don’t see often.  She was so caring and concerned with MY well-being.  It was refreshing and it was beautiful (and yes I cried because I’m a sap) but she reminded me why I wanted to be a Mommy in the first place and why I’m thankful that I have the honor of being HER Mommy! 
My Bug rocks…hot mess and all!  With Mother’s Day approaching, I hope y’all are digging deep, looking at what you have, and appreciating your Mommyhood.  I know I am!  I love all 6 of my kids with all of my heart and soul and I’m thankful that I was given the gift of being a Mommy!  
Sparkle on and enjoy the hot messes in your life!

    I have a couple of hot messes! LOL I love them dearly and count my blessings, even when I’m stepping on LEGOS, being shot by a water gun while laying peacefully in the sun, and while they argue over who’s going to take a shower first. =)
