The Reason For The Season

I truly enjoyed my Mother's Day. I had a chance to enjoy brunch with my husband, my mother and Mekhi and when we returned home I enjoyed a quiet relaxing day to myself. I spent most of that time in the bed napping because that is a treat that I rarely have the opportunity to enjoy. On Mother's Day we celebrate our role as primary caregiver(in most cases) to our children. The other day I spoke to a college friend of mine and she noted how much she enjoys being a mother, I do too. Despite the challenges of the meltdowns, tantrums and all around rowdy behavior at times, my son Mekhi gives me joy. Today I celebrate my son, who enabled me to join the tribe of women that are called Mom. Here are a few recent photos of him that really make me smile.


It is hard to believe it but my bright little boy will be two next week. The time has truly flown but my love for this beautitful child grows stronger every day.

I love his "stunner" shades! And yes, being a mother is indeed the most special of special gifts. I've been a mother for exactly half my life-don't ask me what I did the first half...subsequently, don't ask me what I haven't done the better half! I'm glad your days was marvelous, it was well-deserved.

Oh Renee, I feel the same way. Today I went to a conference organized by my former employer and they had a round table where everyone had to mention their greatest accomplishment and joy. Well I stated that my kids give me joy, everyone was looking at me like a was retarded then I missed my bloggy friends like you whom I know feel the same way.
