This week has been hard. So busy with work and everything else related to being a mom. Today I asked Samantha to skip an informal soccer game/celebration tomorrow b/c I am working late… to which she said no. I asked Aidan to fold some laundry while I was getting Samantha from play rehearsal (this trip made 4hrs in the car for me today)…. he forgot. And Rahul is going to be gone again tomorrow night while I am working until 9pm in Southern Pines. I just lost it.
This time of year is always really busy with activities/life, and it is also the time of year that is the hardest for me.
So, I am channeling my inner Wonder Woman for this weekend. As a good friend said, my super power in mid May is being a warrior and carrying on. Wonder Woman is female for a reason folks.
I ordered myself a very special Mother’s Day gift…. and it is jewelry folks. Here is my necklace in yellow gold. Mine will be silver.
It is a symbol of adoption. The triangle represents each person in the adoption process – birth parent, adoptive parent, child… all connected with love. I have the tattoo as well.
Aidan’s guitar teacher posted on Facebook a picture of a memory that he has from his dad and asked others to do the same. This is what I shared. Jergens hand lotion always makes me think of my mom. Her hands were always so soft.
So, as we head into Mother’s Day weekend, I will color and try to be Wonder Woman for my family.
