love hurts

....especially when you are a mommy.

I didn't really plan to have this blog about anything other than my emotional moments. But I decided to pop a few photos in later on.

I have been dreading the girls getting older for a long time obviously. The teen years will be expensive, tiring, and draining most likely. And I am starting to get glimpses of some of the things to come. I think about Makayla a lot. She has been getting in trouble at school due to little people that she thinks are her friends telling on her. She is a follower and does what her peers do or ask her to do. It breaks my heart to see her "friends" hurt her feelings and I just want to put her in a cave somewhere so she won't have to deal with it. I got a phone call today from the assistant principal at her school due to an incident and I asked her to put Makayla on the phone. She was so very upset because she was in the principals office. I had to tell her to take deep breaths several times so she could calm her nerves and talk to me. I remember getting that way as a kid and it is awful. I felt so bad for her that I asked her if she wanted me to come get her right then. And she said, "No, momma. I'll be alright." Reflecting on that now, she was showing me that she is tough and can handle it. I just held her and boo hooed when she got home and told her how much I love her. I just needed to talk it out on my lovely blog I guess to get some perspective.

So, here are some photos from the day devoted to love:

Alex always tells me that Valentine's Day is a 'racket'.

My lovies ready to party at school.

And my sweet man sent me some beautiful flowers.

Don't get down by my pitiful post. I know my girl will grow and be so strong due to things she has already and will continue to overcome.

Being a mom is a TOUGH job, and seeing your babies hurt is the worst!! You are such a good mom, and obviously are doing a good job. Makayla is being a strong girl and you are helping grow stronger. Your love, hugs and prayers are the best remedy! XOXO
