What makes this MY life?

Three things...
Three very small and important human beings.
Little souls with loving hearts; a sweet innocence uncorrupted.
Three sets of curious faces with broad toothy smiles.
Cuddles and bear hugs uninterrupted.

My reasons for waking; my reasons for breathing.
The reason I came into being.
Bright lights unwavering when all else grows dark.
My inspiration; my rainbows from heaven when the world has turned stark.

Three little humans...
Three handsome and very smart boys.
Turning life upside down, inside out.
My caffeine; my medication
Reassurance in a world of doubt.

Temper tantrums; broken hearts.
Tears and a quivering chin.
Lessons to be learned.
Time outs to be served.
Screams and yells much to my chagrin.

Three little boys...
Three little bundles of energy and dirt.
Three times the toys and cleaning.
The mopping and the sweeping.
Three times the Mr. Bubbles and Pert.

My joy; my hope
The reasons I dream.
Giggles, tickles and "I love you mommy".
My teachers in being patient and free.

My boys...
My loves.
My existence...
