That above is a photo of my mother and I, What I am guessing was when I was three. I have to admit this is one of my favorite photos of me and my mother. A Typical mother and daughter 90s glamour shot. That hair though!
This year marks my second year of being a Mother. Another year of comprehending more of what motherhood is about and what it means to me. Another year of joy, Achievements, Heart aches and laughs. Another year that is accelerating before me. Because when you have kids, Life and time in general passes at a rapid pace.
My child is nearly 2. As said before, The cliches are legitimate. Motherhood has taught me so much. I never could of imagined loving someone so damn unconditionally in an instant. To become so easily entertained and enthralled by the milestones my son achieves each day. To become so obsessed and involved in this tiny persons life. The good, The bad, And the ugly. All worth it. It's all special and I wouldn't trade it for anything.
Sure it's defiantly not a walk in the park. Since becoming pregnant and once Blake was born. I can not remember a night I've completely slept through. Because I haven't. I miss the days I could sleep until noon. But I wouldn't take it back. The sickness, The sleep regression. The teething days.
Another year I am thankful for my own Mother. Thankful for all the of the sacrifices and love she has given and passed on to me. Helping me become the mother I am today.
Happy Mother's Day to all. My mother, Grandmothers, Mother IN Law and Stepmother, My Aunts and even cousins and friends. I am very fortunate as well as Blake, to have all of these women in our lives. We love you!
