Mother’s Day Post 1 of 2…
I love this child so freaking much.
I don’t think I can pour it out into words how painfully much I love him, how thankful I am for him, how happy I am as a mother and as his mother. But briefly let me say…I love this little man. In his six months here with us he has taught me so much and has challenged me and encouraged me to grow in ways I never knew possible. The joy and love he has brought to our lives is a serious blessing.
The fact Mother’s Day happens to fall on his half birthday is just all too coincidental, but yes it’ll bring me to tears because…holy shit we’re 1/36 of the way through his childhood. Pump the brakes my dude. (Where does time go?!) Excuse me while I go compose myself.
Okay back and I want to say that I love my own mama so darn much. I am beyond thankful for her being here, in my life, as a positive role model, a friend, and a grandma to our little babe. I think about it everyday. And I am blessed to have a fabulous mother-in-law as well, so I consider myself extra lucky on days like today.
And I salute all the moms out there, who especially in these recent times have picked up about a dozen new hats to wear.
You are all doing amazing. I’m so proud of you.
