True Mom

Jacob has come down with a terribly runny nose and the saddest sounding little cough. Given his condition, he hasn't been incredibly crabby today, but there was a constant battle with finding a good balance between his runny snot and wiping it off (which he hated). This evening, I felt like an adequate amount had dribbled down to his mouth, so I reached into my pocket and grabbed some kleenex I had stored away and wiped off his red little nose. Phil, witnessing this event, told me I was finally a "true mom" since "that's what moms do." I'm not quite sure what I have been for the past eleven-and-a-half months, but I'm glad I finally made it to "True Mom" status :)
