Happy Mother's Day to everyone! This is a particularly special holiday to me for 3 reasons: 1.) our first child arrived on Mother's Day - Happy 5th birthday to my darling V 2.) it reminds me of how lucky I am to have such a wonderful Mother and 3.) it reminds me of how lucky I am to BE a mother.
Dim Sum and Milk Tea to start the day!
Jia leung (fried dough wrapped with rice noodle, sp?) - a favorite for all 3 generations
Ready for some rambling?
Soon after getting married, I started experiencing some health issues. I underwent tests for a few months and thought I was going to die when the doctor mentioned possible brain tumor (in retrospect, I reacted too dramatically, but when faced with mortality at a relatively young age, I...spazzed). I'm fine now, as you can see, and just get monitored periodically. At any rate, I was feeling morbid during that time and reflecting upon what I might not be able to do. Number 1? Children. They had always been a part of our plans, but not top of mind since we were still newlyweds. After I was cleared, children became our priority. We had our difficulties, but after years at the doctor, we were blessed with our baby boy. It was a no-brainer to pursue baby #2 the same way, and thankfully, it took less treatment / time. My path to motherhood reminds me every single day how blessed I am to have these children <3<3<3
- Little V
- Will be graduating preschool and starting Kindergarten in the fall
- Bounded into our room this morning at 6am to exclaim, "Happy Mother's Day!" :)
- Little E
- Her toddler speak is a constant source of laughter - all verbs have an added "y" at the end
- "I needy this"
- "I wanty sit on lap"
- Loves to help unpack. It's not productive (at all), but it's sweet
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
