“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

A thank you to all of the mothers in my life, especially the one that brought me into the world and has loved me through thick and thin all of these years.  Another special thank you to Drew, husband extraodinaire, for always making me feel like a queen, and for going the extra mile on my first mother’s day.  And above all, a thank you to the young sir, my amazing bright little beautiful son, for making me a mama.  To all of you mothers out there, thank you to you too.  It’s not a big deal, but we’re kind of rockstars.  I mean, if you think about it, we really are: hair sticking out all over the place, up all hours of the night, we have a stage name, and I haven’t stayed in a hotel with a toddler yet, but 10 to 1 says that he’ll be able to trash a hotel room in under 10 minutes.  Total Rockstars.

Here a couple of pictures from Sunday…

We started the day with a walk (found a beautiful bird's nest!)

me and my mama!

A luna moth joined us for dinner

Our little guy

Drew and I finish the day giving some thought to how parenthood makes us feel.
