Momma’s Baby

Next week is Mother’s Day and I have been thinking a lot about it since it is an important day to me. It’s really important for me to have my Mom know how much I love her and respect her. Because during the year, I’m afraid I don’t let her know as often as I should.

See, ever since I was a little girl I was always a Momma’s Baby. And now that I am older, married and have a daughter of my own, I realize that I am still, if not even more so, a Momma’s Baby.

When I get sick, I want my Mom. When I’m upset, I want my Mom. When I can’t make up my mind, I want my Mom. Any big decision I make, I want my Mom’s opinion. Because I know she will never lead me wrong. She will always tell me the truth, even when it hurts or isn’t something I want to hear. She always thinks of things that I have not thought of. I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have her with me.

Even now, if my husband and I are trying to decide on something, he will ask me “Have you asked your mom?”. He too now relies on her opinions and advice.

Just recently we had a new couch delivered. I loved them but I could not make up my mind if I liked them for us. I thought I did but wasn’t sure if they were too large. Or if the wall color would need to be changed in order to make a better fit. Without hesitating, I dialed my Mom. And within 5 minutes, she was at our house to help. And of course, she thought of things I had not thought of. And suggested things I had, solidifying my decision to have the wall colors changed. After she left, Tim and I both felt more at ease with our decision.

It’s not that I need her ultimate approval. I just need the important stuff. Her thoughts. Her advice. Her guidance. It helps me make a decision that I am comfortable with. She helps me to see all sides of a situation, not just my side.

I hope I can learn everything my Mom knows before my daughter grows up. I hope one day my daughter will value my thoughts and opinions just as my Mom values her mother’s and just as I value my mother’s. And she too can be a Momma’s Baby…


  1. How sweet….you should get it printed on nice paper and give it to your mom for Mother’s Day.

    I’m sure she already knows it, but it would be extra special.

  2. Sounds like you and your mom have a great relationship! Happy Mother’s day to her and to you.

  3. Now this has made me cry, which is not good b/c I am up at the office. No one knows better than me and maybe Tim that you have always been a mama’s baby since you were a little girl, I always had to make decisions for you b/c you just couldn’t make up your mind…I will always be there for you now and forever…I love you very much my beautiful daughter. :)
