Happy Mother's Day!

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. 
She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never.
A mother is something absolutely new.

- Rajneesh

When I was a little girl, I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up.  “A mom” I said.  Never did I reply, “a Doctor”, or “a Teacher” (maybe a singer once or twice).  I always looked forward to being a mom. 

Then, I became a mom.  I had no idea how patient I could be, how tired I could get, how protective I was and my capacity to love. It’s a wonderful club – The Mom Club.  An ever-evolving learning club.  For those of you in it, you know exactly what I mean.  You will never learn more about yourself than through those little ones in your life. 

Tristan and Eden, you fill my days with so much fun~you are my dreams come true.  You instantly help me embrace my flaws because they simply don't matter to you and I thank you for that.   I love you both soooo much.  And for those of you trying to become a mom, don’t give up.  It’s worth the wait.  And for those of you who just became a mom, welcome to the club.  

P.S.  Thanks, Mom.  Happy Mother’s Day.  And thanks to hubby for supporting me as Mom.

Happy Mother’s Day!  Yippee spoil yourself rotten!

XO, 

Kari

Oh, Jackie-O, how did she do it?

This would never happen in my house.  Eden would be painting her stomach.  I wonder what Jackie bribed Caroline with to sit for the photo?
