they call me mommy, and sometimes they call me Momma Chase, or the boss…

There aren’t strong enough words in the human language to describe just how thankful I am to be called mommy. My two precious gifts are Zoe Anastasia and Piper Jean. Not only are they beautiful and talented in my eyes, but they possess the confidence to shine bright enough for others to see as well.

Just last week I was at their school for Girls on the Run (I’m a running buddy for my oldest,) and one of the volunteer grandparents stopped me in the hallway  to let me know what wonderful children I have. I’ll admit that I’m still riding that wave of pride.

I’m not saying that my children are perfect, nor do I want them to go around thinking they are without faults. My job is to simply guide them on the right path, and protect them at all costs. Part of being a parent is putting your children before all others, even yourself. You must also teach them to learn from their mistakes, and how to right their wrongs. Putting them on a pedestal and sweeping their wrongs under the rug instead of addressing them does nothing for their character. I feel like I’m lecturing, but its something I feel strongly about. This momma is going to take a deep breath and move forward.

I wouldn’t trade being called mommy for anything in the world, not even coffee or reeses peanut butter cups.  I’m super lucky to get to be a ballet mom, soccer mom, girls on the run mom, IMSA mom, Girl Scout mom, and room mom.  Sure, I’m proud of my girlies for being involved in so many great things, but at the end of the day I’m just happy that they still call me mommy, and want to share their lives with me.
