Tell me: If it's normal then why are we talking about it? If it's normal, then why are we scheduling an echocardiogram? If it's normal, why am I so scared that there's the slightest, tiniest, minutest chance that I won't have my baby girl I've loved since she was conceived four years ago with me forever? That there's a possibility that she won't grow up to graduate school, or get married, or have children of her own?
Am I overreacting - I'm pretty sure I am. Do I care?
Not when it comes to my babies.

And I'm a good mom.? Why?? Because I love my kids.? Man, do I love those guys.? I'd go down into the pits of hell and stitch the devil's forked tongue together if it meant keeping my kids safe.? I'm braver because I'm their mom.? I'm more aware, observant.? I have strength in my motherhood that I'd have never known otherwise.? I'm passionate about my kids.? Nomatter how frustrated I am with Brandon, nothing in this world could make me stop loving him.? And as aggravated as I get with Sarah and her being bossy, it doesn't matter.? At the end of the day, I'm lost without my kids being in their beds, sleeping with their little cheeks all rosy and sweaty-sweet.? And I'm not completely sure that anything in this whole wide world can top the pride and unutterable joy and completeness I feel when Bethy looks up at me with that trusting, infatuated-with-Mama look after a good nursing.
And it doesn't mean a hill o' beans that I write or design websites or graphics or that I'm funny sometimes or that I sing or anything else under God's blue sky.?
It means everything that I'm somebody's mom.

See, it is fun!
