Ben and I started the day beautifully. Here we are playing with his kindy-made binoculars.
The late afternoon didn’t go so well. We got stuck in this!!!
A drive that should have taken 45 minutes took around 1 hour and 30 minutes. I can not recall a more uncomfortable drive home. I went through my entire spectrum of emotions trying to console Ben in the back of the car. He was beside himself.
This photo just breaks my heart xo I thought taking a photo might make him smile…what was I thinking!!
I finally calmed Ben…. by rubbing his foot (that was all I could reach) while still driving the car. Can you picture it?
I know that this is not the most uplifting or cheerful post. I am just keeping it real. Putting it out there that parenting for me is not always ‘all roses’. I am pretty sure it is this way for most Mums. But I don’t know a Mum who would change any of it. Being a Mum is precious, even after a long screaming drive home. Nothing really prepared me for being a mother which I was reminded of in the car today…. it made me think of this –
The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new. ~Rajneesh
Something pretty….. wonderful xo
