I’ve officially been a mom for 15 years.
Ethan turned 15. He’s the only child I’ve given birth to.
But the spark to becoming a mom was lit about 3 years before Ethan was born.
God brought me and Kent together which also included his son Ben, a soon to be 10 year old at the time.

Mother’s Day had me thinking about the things I have learned from my mom over the years.
To give you a brief history lesson: My birthday is 4 days after my mom’s. She had just turned 21 when she had me. She and my dad had only been married about 6 months. I was their first child. Two years later my brother came along and that would be our family until our parents divorced about 20 years later.

Being a Mom has taught me so many things. I’ve narrowed it down to 14 for today.
Ethan turned 14 on Easter Sunday. That means I have been a Mom for 14 years. Actually that means I have been a biological mom for 14 years.
When Kent and I married back in 2000, I became a stepmom to 10 year old Ben. I still remember him asking me to bake cookies for his 4th grade class for his birthday that first year. Oh how it warmed my heart. I became a mom for the first time in that moment.
