Mother’s Day 2022
I celebrated this Mother’s Day with my little mush and a very loving partner, who both went out of their way to make me feel loved. It was a really easy going day, with a little one who wished me a happy Mother’s Day as well as a happy birthday. Apparently we were celebrating everything. 😉
At some point in the day we enjoyed way too many sweets and were all feeling the sugar high by bath time. 😆🥰 It was a good day all around though.
The Mother Son Bond
Each moment feels so fleeting these days. O and I have been very attached lately. He’s started asking me to get my blanket and sleep in his room… (which I so kindly decline each night and I know I’m going to miss it when he’s over this stage)…telling me to leave the light on while I sing him bedtime songs so he “can see my beautiful face” (it makes me laugh every time)…calling me “mommy” on and off instead “mama… lots of changes and lots of independence, more opinions and a ton of new skills, but he’s quick to remind me he’s not getting too big because he’s “still my baby”. I’m sure how he’s going to be 3 next month. The days are flying by.
Reflecting on Motherhood
Motherhood has taught me the true meaning of love; how to deeply love another and myself unconditionally, with zero expectations. I’ve grown to have an appreciation for the inconsistencies, the surprises, and simple joys that each day brings us and welcome them, with a patient and open heart. There is nothing more humbling or rewarding… or wild.
I hope everyone who celebrate had an amazing Mother’s Day weekend.
