Motherhood is full of memorable moments. Some days you are overwhelmed by emotion and wonder at this gift that has been put into your arms. I found it hard to find just one memorable moment because they are so many. So I picked 2 for each of my children. The most memorable time for me as a mom, is not just at the time when my kids were born, but it is when they started to actively interact with the world, and reach milestones in their own growth.
Memorable moment 1: TheHeir has grown
A couple of months ago we have an amazing opportunity to go to Gold Reef City Them Park, and TheHeir wanted to go on a scary ride, we agreed to try out a few and though I was nervous I wanted to have this one experience with him. We laughed and screamed through the experience, but it was awesome and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. I for the first time really realized how grown my boy was. As I watched him come off the scariest ride and try and comfort me, who was feeling ill and had a pounding headache, time stood still for a moment and I saw the glimpse of the kind of man he will becomeone day. I was so proud, truly a memorable moment for a mother.
Memorable moment 2: Going back in time with the spare
When I was pregnant with TheSpare we had a family photo shoot to commemorate his coming birth and the last month there was going to be just 3 of us. A few months later when he was just starting to walk we came to the same place Rhodes memorial and I watched him walk around and try climb the staircase. Time stood stil for me, as I realized how time flies and how in being business and rushing through the daily actions of parenting, we miss out on the beaut of the moments, of stillness – where e should grateful. So this collage represents a beautiful memorable moment
