Favorite Motherhood Moment

Mothers Day 2008 - Giveaway Event

In honor of Mother's Day approaching (and the giveaway happening over at 5 Minutes for Mom), I thought I would share my favorite motherhood moment with my readers.

When I was pregnant, we took "D" to the ultrasound appointment that would tell us if we were having a boy or a girl. When the tech was sure of what she was seeing, she said "It's a girl!" My 5 year old son's reaction..."OH NO!!! I don't want a sister, I want a brother!!" I was overjoyed and so was my husband but "D" was far from happy.

That's what makes photo's like the one's below so special. Once she was born, his immediate love for her overpowered any sour feelings about girl cooties, pink pony's and barbie dolls. He adores his sister and wants more then anything to be the one to teach her all the things that really matter in life, or what he has learned so far. He's a great big brother and an even better son.
