Then...a photo like this.
My friend Neka and I met up for a last minute lunch/play date on the go yesterday. Let me tell you...the "idea" of walking from the Lotus Cafe' to Better Buzz Coffee 2 blocks down the street seemed like a good idea at the time...
Until we started walking and we both realized we didn't give birth to human children but chimpanzees instead! By the time we got to Better Buzz Neka and I were both frazzled! It's easy as mother's to get exhausted, especially with young toddlers pulling on our last nerves.
Then I'll look back at a photo like this...and all the memories of struggle and chaos of the day melt away and all I see is the beauty and joy of motherhood, and how I really don't want her to grow up too fast.
