Happy Mother's Day!

As I sit here typing and picking bits of dried split pea off my shirt, I'm reflecting on my feelings about motherhood from this past year. Although it is officially my second Mother's Day, I think that this past year was full of more personal growth than I could have imagined. I've been frustrated and short-tempered through a lot of it, which has surprised me since I would have called myself a patient person prior to giving birth. But I've been thinking about my mom a lot and wondering how the hell she did this with 5 little beings running around.

My time seems to vanish quicker and quicker, and SoJo keeps getting bigger and bigger! We'll be spending tomorrow at the park, having a little picnic or something. I just hope I don't have to cook anything! Mostly because cooking=washing dishes, and I can certainly do without that part on Mother's Day.

To all of you mothers out there, including my friend Shana, who will be celebrating her first Mother's Day tomorrow, I hope you are spending lots of time with or thinking about your children, no matter where they may be. I feel so blessed and complete having taken the plunge into motherhood.
The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new. ~Rajneesh

  3. Oh my word, Sojo looks so grown up in this picture! Like first day of college!

    I feel like this year is my "first" mother's day as well, because I feel like Jojo is only just now at an age where he can kind of "get" what it means.

    I know, it only took 4 1/2 years.

    Happy Mother's Day!
