I celebrated Mother’s Day for the very first time as a mother! Congratulations to me!
What a fantastic treat. My day was special because my son is precious, healthy, happy and he is the reason I am now called MAMA.
My hubby and son, affectionately referred to as “my boys” in this post, started the day off with a video they had made for me, with my little one saying MAMA , MA-MA, MAAAAA-MA!
Mind you, he is 11 months old, so I was so excited and happy to hear him speaking into the camera and expressing what he was thinking and feeling.
Next, my boys made me a wonderful Mother’s Day breakfast. It was delicious. The three of us sat at the table, talked, laughed and enjoyed being in love with each other. I was able to savour the moment.
I am not into the whole presentation of chocolate and flowers so all of that was not needed. They wrote my “card” on the whiteboard in the hallway and I will leave that up there for as long as I can. Just need to make sure I take a picture of it before one of my boys wipes it off.
We spent the day out with my son’s Oma (grandma) and Urli (great-grandma), and had a lot of cake.
So you might think “what’s so spectacular about this?”
The day. The experience. The pictures. The memories made. That made my day so amazing and special. The magnitude of love I felt and am still feeling as I write this.
My entry into motherhood has been a great adventure. I know, I know, all moms say this – I am blessed and happy to be able to experience my son growing up (fast), achieving many milestones. This is the best time of my life.
Two years ago I would have not thought I could do this.
Before I got pregnant, I worried about how my life would change if I had a child. How would it affect me dealing with OCD and anxiety? My job? My relationship?
We have found a great routine that works for us. I find joy in life and living.
I laugh and smile more and more. If you have read any of my other posts, you know that I am also on a personal growth journey, so positive affirmations are important in my daily life.[bctt tweet=”There is no way to be a perfect mother, but a million ways to be a great one!” username=”abusybeeslife”]
Mother’s Day has been a delight, and while wonderful to be recognized as a mother, for me motherhood is celebrated everyday my son looks me right in my eyes and smiles.
