I rarely talk about being “mommy.” I don’t know why either, because out of all my titles in life (wifey-extraordinaire, fitness freakazoid, daughter of the year every year) this is the most rewarding one…and the most fun too!
I get to rediscover the world through new eyes. The sound of the waves, the movement of trees, the site of green grass…all mean more the me now than ever before.
Food is more than just food now. It’s building blocks to future habits. Tasting is a whole new world.
I get to play house and see the world from a different point of view.
I get to have fun as little bug’s personal stylist. Mixing and matching…it’s all so cute on a little baby!
I get to take countless self-pictures during the day!
I have endless excuses for wanting to head to the park!
She encourages me to run and stay healthy and in-shape!
I get to rediscover holidays (this was Easter morning)
We have an excuse to get into our “Sunday Best”
She reminds me to be a kid again, have endless fun, make weird noises and funny faces, count to 10 on those rough days, slow down, take in each moment, stop to cuddle, and give kisses whenever possible.
Happy Mother’s Day to my mom as well!! We are both Virgos with our birthdays just 4 days apart so I can honestly say “no one knows me quite like my mom.” I’m so excited to be reunited come July when we can shop, go to movies, drink wine and do all that fun grown-up mommy-daughter stuff. I’m so thankful to have a truly strong bond with my mother. I only hope that my little bug and I have one equally close through the years to come!
