I love being his mom so much... even when he steals my gardening shovel, or dumps out all of the bubbles, or drops his snack all over the ground but eats it anyway, and attaches himself to my leg because he wants up, or tries to squirm out of my arms because he wants down. The most important thing I've learned from being a mom is that I get a lot of chances to do things right, so even when I make mistakes or have a hard day, I feel like I can try and do better the next time and it will be okay. I have grown so much from this motherhood experience and I know it is making me a better, stronger, more loving and patient person. One things for sure, being outside with my little boy is very very good for my soul. We have a lot of sunny days ahead and I'm going to try hard not to take them forgranted.
(and thank you, Nick, for taking pictures of us at the park!)
Also, am I the only one whose toddler insists on playing in everyone elses yard? He thinks he can explore wherever he pleases. If you need me, I'll be chasing Edwin around my neighborhood while he walks up to strangers doors and says, "knock, knock, knock." Where does he get this stuff?!
