Celebrating Mother’s Day over the weekend brought me to reflect on my journey as a mom. It has not been easy. In fact, it has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done. From sleepless nights to struggles within my marriage, to almost 2 years later trying to potty train & control my toddler’s tantrums…did I say this hasn’t been easy?!
But with struggle comes reward. We have the most adventurous, full of life, loving, funny as hell little man. Before our son arrived, my husband & I would see parents with frustration on their faces glare at their children while their kids did cute, witty things. We couldn’t understand why they weren’t laughing or at least smiling at their mischiefs.
It was then we told ourselves we would cherish those little moments, laugh more than we yelled and encourage our son to be bold. Even through the sleepless nights & frustrating days of reasoning with a toddler I find myself constantly laughing at his shenanigans. Our little comedian brings a smile to my face every day.
We are so blessed to have such a healthy, energetic son in our lives. He has taught us to be patient, communicate better and not to sweat the small stuff.
