Some Wonderful Moms I Know

©2012 LaDena Campbell aka justateacher

Mother’s Day is here again. A wonderful day to honor the most wonderful woman in our lives. This is my second Mother’s Day without my own mom. It hurts to know that I will not be able to celebrate this day with my mother any more. But I’m not going to dwell on that this year. This year I am going to celebrate three wonderful moms I know.

Tabitha is our oldest daughter. She is the one that was a grown up at age two. Taught herself to read at two and a half. Told her first grade teacher that she was a talker and there was nothing that the teacher could do to stop her. Actress, champion in debate and forensics. Fell in love with her husband at 14 and married him July 7, 2007 – 7-7-7. Mother of my oldest grandson, Miles.

Tabitha had wanted to be a mom for a long time. Miles was born two years after his parents got married. Tabitha had been around children all of her life – she has bunches of cousins, most who are younger than her. She babysat the neighbors from the time she was twelve. She knew what she was getting into. She felt that she could be a good mom. But she’s not. She is a GREAT mom. While Miles made it difficult for her due to his lack of wanting to sleep and therefore crying, she has always done what is best for Miles. She decided to be a stay-at-home mom – sort of. By that I mean that she works about eight months out of the year, but she gets to take Miles to work with her. She is the assistant to the entertainment director for the Kansas City Renaissance Festival – one of the biggest festivals in the area. Miles goes everywhere with her. She even takes him on cool “field trips” around the area. She makes everything a lesson. And everything fun. She is a great mom!

Courtney was a little surprised by Jaxon. That doesn’t mean that she didn’t want him, just that she hadn’t expected him. She became a single mom when he was born. Jaxon’s father decided that he didn’t want to be a part of their lives – and all the better for the both of them. While most girls her age in her situation would have moved back in with their parents, or decide to live off the system, Courtney decided to grow up and work her tail off to become a nurse. I am sure that she would like to spend as much time with Jaxon as Tabitha does with Miles, but she also sees the benefit of daycare. Jaxon gets to spend time with children his own age and learn from them and his wonderful teachers. It also makes the time she does spend with Jaxon even that much more special. They play games and read and go watch motorcycles together. They make sure all their time together is special – even if they just sit at home and watch Sponge Bob. She is a great mom!

Tami is due with her first child in June. I have no doubt that she will also be a great mom. She was a little worried for awhile that she might not be able to be a mom. She and her husband married August 1, 2009 – several weeks after I married my now and forever husband. When she got pregnant, she and her husband were thrilled. Tami is strong and independent and knowledgeable. She, too, babysat at a young age and was always taking care of the younger kids in our neighborhood. She is going to college to become a teacher – or maybe something else. Her baby will be special to me because it will be my first granddaughter. Can’t wait for her to get here! I expect that Tami will enjoy dressing little Olivia in frilly little girl clothes and put little ribbons and lace in her hair. I have enjoyed buying little girl things for her already. Tami will be a great mom!

These mothers are special to me. Because not only are they mothers, they are wonderful, beautiful, smart, young women that just happen to be my daughters.
