How adorable are they with their little velvet tuxedo jackets and bow ties?? After the wedding, we met up with friends and walked around Newbury Street. They had their very first George Town cupcakes. We got home late at night and both of the girls went to bed within two minutes of getting home. As I was laying in bed last night, I thought a lot about our lives. I guess before I had kids, I was never really been the type of person to LOVE children. I mean I like them but I guess I never really thought about being a mom or wanting to be a mom.
Then these little people came along and they changed my life. I know it is cliche but for me, motherhood has made my life more....meaningful. All of a sudden, here they are...the next generation of human beings and that is what they are...individuals with their own thoughts and needs and ideas.
For me, parenthood is not just about simply raising these children with love and support but also making sure that these little people would someday become the people who care and attribute something good to this society and earth. Of course there are many challenging days. There are days when I am literally reduced to tears from feeling overwhelmed. I am constantly asking myself if I am saying the right things or doing the right things? Am I supporting them enough? Am I also firm enough so they don't get spoiled? In the midst of temper tantrums and melt downs...
there are moments when they show you how brilliant and strong they really are.
Motherhood is hard and it really does takes a village to raise good people. As I walked around the house on this gloomy Sunday, I felt so thankful for my village.
I felt inspired by strong women before me.
The women who took the time to raise me and shape me into the person I am today.
