Happy Mother’s Day
Becoming a mother is something you can try to prepare for, but you will never quite understand until it happens. The day I had my daughter, Melia, nearly 11 years ago, I began to love her and my love for her grows as she does. It is hard to even put into words, but you really have no idea what true love is until you have a child. Nothing compares.
Today started off with Melia’s alarm sounding at 6:00am. She came into my room to snuggle with me in bed. We dozed for 30 min until I was fully awake, when she then promptly went back into her own bed to sleep a couple more hours. So, I do what all single moms do when their child is sleeping in, I got stuff done. I planted a hydrangea, mowed the lawn and baked gluten free-buckwheat-flaxseed-blueberry muffins!
When Melia woke up she presented me with a homemade card and flowers. I cried, of course. She really gets me and she really appreciates me. I love her so much.
We went to a meetup with a mom and her daughter. Attendees of the amazing school Melia got into. They re-lit the excitement I have for Melia to go there. We came home from that and Melia prepared a hand made picnic for the two of us. (Egg and cheese on Ezekiel for me. Salad and cheese slices for her) We walked/biked to the park (I carried everything, of course) and Melia granted me my mother’s day wish, she let me take a few really nice photos of her. This is a huge deal because Melia hates photos. I have such an amazing daughter.
After the park, I took a much needed nap, then made dinner while Melia made homemade gluten free brownies and HOME MADE Ice cream for me. Seriously, guys…I was spoiled today! We ate and spent the evening watching Sabrina The Teenage Witch together. I couldn’t ask for a more perfect day.
