Mamahood is magic. We are very quickly thrust into a new way of loving and living and being. So alongside that magic there is a great deal of learning on the go, sleep deprivation, learning your real bounds when it comes to personal space and patience. It is hard. So hard. Wonderfully difficult. There are days when we're equal parts head over heels for our little loves and desperate for the reprieve of bed time.
Alyca and I have spoken a bit about mamahood and getting through those days, exhausted and grateful that we made it through. Since she was headed back to work sooner than planned, she gifted herself a lovely mother's day present this year a photoshoot with her two little loves. We didn't leave her bedroom, and spent the time colouring, reading books, jumping on the bed, giving big hugs and lots of giggles.
She's doing beautifully as a mama to her two. Going from one to two kids is no joke, but her home is filled with a heck of a lot of laughter and so much easy joy. Her kids will always be certain of a mama who adores them, has only their best interests at heart and will make sure there's always a reason to laugh.
