This was my fifth mother’s day. It seems surreal that I have been a mom this long, yet I look back and really can’t remember much about what life was like before my babies. It won’t be long before these precious years are gone, the years of bringing life into this world, snuggling your tiny babies whose smell you never want to forget & being needed every minute of every day. The few short years of your life where you will lose your patience over another lost shoe or find yourself on your hands and knees three times a day scooping up food from the floor. Those toes won’t be little for long, their voices won’t be so small & there will eventually be things they’d much rather do than follow you to the bathroom.
Motherhood has this way of breaking us down & building us right back up all within mere seconds. It is hard, and it is draining, but there is still so much beauty in this journey. I wanted to be a mom my whole life, I couldn’t wait. I hoped and wished and prayed to have little girls some day, and now here we are, five whole years into it. And it has gone by so fast.
These are the days, right here in the palms of our hands.
Lots of love to all of you who celebrated mother’s day this year, I hope it was an amazing one. XO
