Mommy vs. Mom

The saddest thing happened in my life a couple of days ago...... You all know my oldest son Caden, he just barely graduated from 1st grade. He still gives me a kiss when he gets out of the car in the mornings, he loves to snuggle me and love me. I still call him baby from time to time. Cause he is my baby my first baby!! Well the other day he started calling me Mom. I noticed it right away cause he has always called me Mommy. I asked him "Caden why are you calling me Mom?" He said, " I've decided I'm going to call you Mom now." I said "Why, I like when you call me Mommy." He said "I'm to old Mom. I've grown out of that. Everyone has to do it." Ahhhhh Well this was a sad realization for me personally, It just made me feel that we are out of that little sweet kid stage where they are innocent of the world and growing up. Oh it just breaks my heart. So to all you moms out there cherish your sweet babies calling you mommy cause one day they up and decide to call you just mom.

Me and the fam went up to Little Cottonwood Canyon on Sunday afternoon. It was one of those days when I felt like , all this work that it takes to raise this family is worth it. I watched as my oldest son Caden, hiked all around the rocks by himself not wanting any of my help. Blake wanted me to hold his had the whole time we where hiking, I love that at least he still wants my help. It seems like only yesterday when we had Caden in this same backpack hiking around with only one baby. Now look at us we have three kids together and we are going strong. What a cute family huh!!
This is my funny Caden meditating on the rock. His becoming one with the wilderness.
I absolutely love the outdoors, It makes me feel alive!! I love the smells of flowers and fresh air. I love the sound of the running river. It is just the best place ever.

My sweet Ben and Baby Brynlee!
