My present for my first Mother's Day was that my husband would take over feeding our daughter during the night while I sleep.  In the guest bedroom, with earplugs in, to guarantee that I sleep through the whole night.  I have been looking forward to this for two weeks, and there have been times recently that I would've done anything to not have to get up during the night to take care of a crying baby.  I have been exhausted again of late and have been getting really excited about my first night free from responsibility.

Yet when I put her down to sleep tonight, I cried.  I will miss her during the night.

Such is the mother's burden.

1 Tomorrow I'd take breakfast and a footrub that won't end until I say so. Wonderful seeing you today! You and little miss looked wonderful. I can't believe how strong she is already.

2 That is a wonderful mother's day present.  I think that should occur weekly at least - nothing like a good night's sleep!

8 An infrequent commenter, but a repeat commenter.  I've been dealing with PCS moves lately and so I'm a little behind, but have taken such joy in seeing your baby dream fulfilled and it's with great pleasure and thankfulness to God that I can wish you a Happy Mother's Day.  Congrats.
