happy mother's day!
this is my second mother's day with maya. i can't believe another year has flown by. to be honest i still am getting used to the idea that i am a mommy. and that maya is my daughter.
lately i've been working very hard being a mommy because maya was ill with a stomach virus. it was the first time she was ill and i suppose i should be very grateful that she did not fall ill before this time, but it's been a trying time for all of us these last few weeks. it's hard to see your child vomiting and not be able to explain to them what is going on. i really felt sad and worried for maya but thankfully the worst part of it passed in a few days. it's taken a while for her to fully recuperate and i have to say it tested my patience. on top of all this she has been teething, so my darling baby has turned into a needy, cranky 14 month old. wow!
lately she just wanted to be held or have me close by. if i stepped out of the her sight for one second she would start wailing. this is when a support system is terribly important. and being that the husband is working like a dog these days and friends have been sick, dealing with newborn baby or just plain working, well i have felt a bit like an island lately. thankfully things are starting to get back to normal. just in time for mother's day too!
so to all those mothers out there i want to say kudos to you, for all you do. it is a big job being a mommy. we have to be their for our children when we are dead tired or when we don't feel well ourselves. we are consantly putting their needs above ours. we know whether they are hungry, tired or just need a change of scenery. no matter what, i feel like i am blessed to be a mom. i feel an amazing depth of love for my baby and i wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.
