Forever my baby ❤️. Love this boy so much. I’ve had to stand my ground a lot lately with this one, and it’s not been easy. Lots of slammed doors and stomped feet and yelling out of frustration. I keep remembering he’s not even a teenager yet, and I have to settle my nerves and pick my battles and press on. But then he smiles in just the right moments. He gives me hugs when I need it most. He comes home with a straight A report card. He helps his brother clean his mess. He picks me a leaf shaped like a heart. He falls asleep reading a book about gratitude.
Parenthood is the wildest, craziest adventure. Full of chaos and overwhelm, but SO MUCH LOVE i could burst every night as i kiss their sleeping foreheads ❤️. I have so much I want to do in this life - things that take time and patience and effort and undivided attention and detailed focus and many other things that being a mother withholds from me often. that strain is my greatest struggle some days, but I could not for a moment envision my life without these kids of mine. They make it all worth it. They keep me dreaming, envisioning, aspiring, and hopeful that one day, someday, the things that are meant to happen will happen. I couldn’t fathom better company while I wait, and create... to live this sacred life with ❤️. Even if it’s the most challenging thing I’ve ever done, every sacrifice and every tear is worth this love ❤️.
