What a beautiful weekend with my babes, exploring. Need them, their honesty, their simplicity... like tagging in at homebase. I missed them so big while we were apart... but it never hindered me having a guilt-free, good time. I recognize that I do love our time apart, its healthy. And I am fortunate, beyond measure, to even be able to acknowledge that and live it. I know this.
I also recognize I am still my own person with wants and needs and a purpose outside of solely motherhood. I am not just one dimensional, I am not just, only... their mommy. I am a whole lot more.
And so are they. They are so much bigger than what I can even see sometimes!! I heard things from their Aunt B and I was blown away! And SO proud. Gosh. Ok. Thats how they’re interacting when I’m not around? YES!🙌🏻
And the people who love them deserve their time with them without me over-the-shoulder, too. I have not had too much time apart from them since their birth.... this was by far the longest consecutively I have ever gone without them attached to me. Literally. To say we are a tripod.... 🤣💛
A once in awhile break for all of us is just real good for the soul. After all this and all we’ve been through in this pressure cooker. It is more than needed to let off steam in all our own spaces. I learn things, they learn things. We all get to expand.💛💛💛💛 And my favorite, come right back together.
Loved reconnecting with them, though... what a blessing to my heart they are... I am so grateful. They really are their daddy’s girls. Kind, sweet, sensitive, loving. I am lucky to be theirs.☀️🌴💛 #motherhood #momanddaughters #wanderers #travelflorida #widowhood #attitudeofgratitude
