Mother’s Day

Shop my dress, Shop my mom’s dress

I’ve always imagined what it would be like to be a mother.  What would my children look like?  How many would I have? What would their names be? What kind of mommy would I be?  I remember playing with my dolls and caring for them just as my mother cared for us.  I would even pretend breastfeed my dollies because that’s how my mom fed my baby brother Blake.  My entire life I have been gearing up to be a mom.

Well it’s finally here! I’m a MOMMY.  I’ve been called many things, but mom has got to be the best.  I’m so in love with my baby girl.  I give her a million kisses before I leave for work and rush home to see her.  I cherish our weekends and spend every waking minute with her.  I smother that little girl with so much love.  Oh how my life has changed.

I have my wonderful mother to thank for being the best role model anyone could ask for.  Growing up she was always so full of love, guidance and support.  She always made us feel really special by writing little love notes on our napkins in our lunch box, throwing the best birthday parties, bringing a “surprise” home from the grocery store (she would hide it behind her back and ask us to pick a hand 🙂 ), and always told us how much she loved us.  I don’t know how she did it.  She worked a full time job and always had dinner on the table, the house was always spotless and she’s always dressed to the nines.  To me she was (she is) super woman. I have so many wonderful memories that I’ll cherish for a life time.  She continues to impress me.  I still need her.  She’ll never stop being my mommy.  Because of her, I know how to love my daughter.

This Mother’s Day is extremely special to me.  Not only is it my first, but it’s something that her and I can now share.  Being a mother is special and I can’t wait to teach London the many things she has taught and continues to teach me.  I love you Mom.  Happy Mother’s Day.  London is blessed to have you as a grandmother.

What are some special memories or things you’ll cherish forever that you shared with your mom?  Do you have any special Mother’s Day traditions?  Please share.  I’d love to hear them :).  Happy Mother’s Day to all!

Until Next Time,

Amanda

  1. Oh my goodness Mimi. It’s difficult to comment now with tears flowing like a fountain. I love being a mom and know that is my purpose. I thank God everyday for this honor and privelage. You continue to amaze me. London is lucky to have you as her mommy and I know you will be an amazing mommy. This is just the beginning. I can’t wait for the ride we call life. Let’s have fun, but hold on, it gets bumpy every now and then, but that’s what makes it “interesting.”. Happy Motber’s Day to you my little girl and may God continue pouring his blessing over you and your beautiful family.
    I love you mucho mucho
