I took this photo as part of their 2nd birthday invites, but never shared!!! So here you go, two months late but better now than never.
Have you mamas ever really realized how much you actually do for your kids & family??? Think about it ~ Whether you’re a new mom at twenty five, or a more seasoned mom at fifty five....take a minute, look in a mirror, and appreciate yourself.
The fatigue, the insanity, the long days and even longer nights, the lunch making, the carpooling, the school meetings, the arguments, the patience you can’t always find, the dinners, the baths & bedtime stories, the I hate yous’ and the I love yous’, the list making, the having all your tabs open and still remembering to buy toilet paper...we may not even realize this forward motion of always just doing and going that we’re in, but it’s happening and you’re doing great.
Dads, of course could be doing it all too, but I’m not talking about you right now ;)
So yea, realize how special you are mama, and try to keep the balance.
Treat yourselves too, pay yourself with just as much love, wine and massages and keep planning those imaginary vacations that keep you sane, because one day, your kids won’t need you as much, and you’ll be tapping your feet, wondering what to do next.
So to conclude, Happy (belated) birthday to these two little fools that I love so much I can scream, and to myself as well for making #%£% happen every single mother effin’ day 👊🏻
