It's really hard to put into words the amount of love I feel towards my daughters.
I try to.
I sit down, open up my documents and stare at the blinking cursor for hours (okay, not hours, but it feels like hours!). I occasionally type up a sentence or two, but always end up erasing them.
Simply because I feel like what I feel for my two girls is completely indescribable. Even as a writer, who can string along poetic sentences like a bad romance novel, I feel a loss for words.
Even as a Mother, who stops what she's doing a thousand times a day to stare at my girls, I'm speechless.
But, oh my heart, it starts beating fast and I get this crazy, queasy (the good kind) feeling in my belly and my fingers itch to touch them.
Roo and Turtle do things to me that I never knew existed.
I get all giddy and excited when I think about them. My heart swells with pride when I watch Roo doing grown up three year old thing. When Turtle smiles at me, I literally think I am going to burst with happiness.
And in that second, I can close my eyes and I forget about being poetic and just think: I love being a Mom.
