Mother’s Day is a good opportunity to take a long look around and appreciate.
Today, I’m feeling grateful for a certain little boy.
Three and a half years into this parenting gig, I’m still quite sure I have no idea what I’m doing.
Each stage seems more complicated than the last, every day is full of new doubts.
Like any mother, I second-guess myself a lot.
But I’m learning. He’s teaching me.
He teaches me that even the tough days are a blessing because I get to spend them with him.
I get to see, in a hundred little ways each day, how smart he is. How creative, how compassionate.
I get to watch him grow up. I get to be his soft place to land.
Today is a chance to marvel at what a privilege it is to be his mom.
