Its another year that concretely reminds myself that I am so lucky to be Maeve's mommy. I honestly can't even fathom life without her... I absolutely love being her mom, even when she's driving me crazy! Ha. Maeve gives me such joy, unconditional love, laughter, patience, and purpose. Its the best.
I am so thankful for my own mother -- she is always on my side, loves me, and always willing to help. I'm sure I drive her crazy too, but I have, no doubt, made her more patient in life too. Ha.
I am also so thankful for Maeve's other mother figures in her life -- her Godmother's - Ann and Annie. They embrace her with their love, time, and encouragement. Things that help her grow up feeling secure and wanted.
I can't help but think of Maeve's birth mom lately. What a gift that we are in contact and Maeve knows how much her birth mom loves her too. She is such a selfless, strong, and loving person. Maeve is lucky to have come from such an amazing person.
Happy mother's day to everyone... I'm aware this holiday is bittersweet for many people I know. To you guys out there -- xoxo
Working on her Mother's day art... (yeah, they're late in the mail... sorry!)
We had a mother's day party at Maeve's school and all the kids were so excited to host a tea party. It was pretty darn cute. Maeve spoke her words of wisdom, and made me this beautiful piece of art we are hanging on our wall. Adorbs.
We had a great day today... nothing terribly exciting, but we were both in very happy moods. We ended our day at an Ethiopian restaurant, which we were both excited about. I love my sweet, sassy, mischievous, little thing... even though I have a few more gray hairs and drink more these days just to cope sometimes. ha ha.
