Today will always be a very special day. I am writing this post the light before, tired from a full daytime of blithely shooting my toddler. When I situated him to bed, we have our special snuggle time and I feel it’s always our little time of gratitude together. We both find each other, and actually feel in that moment. His sly little smile from behind the crib tables as he puckers up his tiny little lips to give me a goodnight kiss. I dreamed for so long to see that face in front of me. Becoming a mom is the best thing to ever happen to me and my most cherished responsibility. Being a mom is challenging myself to grow with another human and learn and accommodated with him.
The past few months, Otis has become to fascinated and in love with flowers. On our everyday ambles through the neighborhood, we move down a few openings to our neighbors and Otis paths their road reeking all the flowers reciting “Flo flow” as he points to the different blushes. He sometimes doesn’t even get close to the flowers but makes in the deepest sniff in the air as he closes his eyes and centres. It just blows my intellect being able to watch him germinate and not only experience things but absolutely enjoy those events.
We were able to run free in vacate province as Otis targeted at the ocean he could see in the distance and moving through the mad flowers. Interrupting to reek them, interrupting to stage. Chatting away. He was in such a humor( the kissy face photo with his sour pu face is my FAVORITE) the working day but it’s wild that even in those frenetic toddler minutes there is always allure in them.
Motherhood is far from perfect but that doesn’t mean you cant have the most beautiful instants together. Embrace the messiness and make pause to enjoy those small moments together.
Many of you know we were in the process of an embryo transfer that got nullified due to Covid-1 9 and while we wish our place could be different now, I know our time will come soon to start back up. For all my fertility fighters out there feeling helpless especially on a day like today, I “ve seen you”. My heart is sending your heart a grip because I is a well-known fact that dark struggle. Stay strong and never give up. Otis is my little miracle boy and I know he was worth the fight and his future sibling is worth that fight extremely.
Happy Mothers Day friends.
