I sit here today while Nelson is out picking up sandwiches for lunch. He rented a bike trailer so we can enjoy this gorgeous (if not a bit windy) day with a long, family bike ride and a picnic in the park. All of this follows breakfast this morning with my own mom, and I'll close the day with drinks with my mom friend Pam. A perfect day.
I feel overwhelming lucky. I have two beautiful little boys who taught me to love with my whole heart. Oscar, the first person to call me "Momma" and who challenges me to be a better parent and person every day. Miles, who is so filled with laughter and joy that I know I must be doing something right. I feel so honored to love them and to know them and to teach them and to watch them grow.
My husband Nelson, who has more faith in my parenting than I do on most days, who supports me and relieves me whenever I need it. I'm so glad that we share this amazing life.
Happy Mother's Day!
