Today, This Mother's Day. Is my first. This Mother's Day, I am a mom. I have a son...
Now that we have established I am a mama and have a son... Oh my god. It just never gets old. Life is crazy... Watching Blake grow has been amazing. He makes cheesiness pour out of me. His smiles and laughs and accomplishments. Even the love for my husband, CHEESE. Because we have a beautiful amazing son together. Ahh just so happy and so so thankful.
I can't lie and say I didn't expect this or that. ( Motherhood and the challenges ) Or that it was going to be easy. Because growing up I helped my mother, "mother" my siblings. I didn't have a story book upbringing. I mean who does really... I wont go into detail either other than to say my parents split at a young age. Things were rocky and my mom worked her ass off to support us. While she was working, I was making my brother and sister mac&cheese and helped getting ready for school. Or in some cases just having a scooby doo day and watching nickelodeon all day. It was hard at times. But I am grateful for it now. Because I learned so many things, And being there for my mother and siblings is what matters the most. It helped prepare me a bit for my own family that is happening right now !
Thank you mother for supporting myself and my siblings. Even when we are assholes, you love us. Vise versa (jk kinda lol) Thank you for being there for us and putting a roof over our head and feeding us and loving us. And now even more so. Being there when Blake came into the world. Our daily facetime sessions and text messages. Visit me soon dammit! I miss you and love you.
And of course I couldn't go without saying thank you to these wonderful ladies who have been there for me and have done so much for Zach and myself...
My Stepmother, Mother In-law and Grandmother In-law. I adore you all and love you so much. Thank you for putting up with me and dealing with my honesty and weird sense of humor.. I really don't know what I would do without any of you. I am grateful for everything you all do for me and our family!
Today this little storer family went on a picnic this afternoon, Ate some lunch and took a few family photos. (Excuse thee mop on my head idk what's up with my hair lately..lazy.) Zach surprised me with my own little instant Fuji camera. It's adorable! Took a few photos. We enjoyed the afternoon together. Just a great day and nice way to spend it together.
It's only been 8 months but it's been a wonderful 8 months watching Blake grow. He has taught me a great deal of patience. I've learned how to survive on only several hours of sleep at a time. Sleep sitting up. Cook with one hand. I've learned I still look fabulous with spit up or drool all over my clothes. Sweat pants look great and coffee all day. Even when he's screaming or there is shit every where I couldn't have imagine such a great love. Another great love story that grows every day. #momlife
Happy Mother's Day!
P.S. Blake is crawling! And his top teeth are cutting through!
