My first Mother's Day

I became a mom ten years ago and my oldest son was only a week old... time flies... Yes, he turned 10 this week... The other day we were shopping for Winter clothes and he wanted to try on the clothes alone in the dressing room. I told him I'd be waiting at the cashier... lost count of how many times I turned around to check if he was coming...

You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother's womb. Psalm 139:13 (NLT)

Oh I bet that did pull on the heart strings a bit. I think my mom took the chair outside and made us give her a fashion show.

Hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day and you get bunches of hugs.

Take care,

That is very touching to read. I appreciate you sharing this. This year will be my wife's first Mother's Day since we adopted Lily last July.

Happy Birthday to your son! The years do fly by, believe me I know that's true!!
Happy Mother's Day...

Cris, I feel the same, my older daughter is almost 13 years old. I remember the day she was born..., as well as the second one. The years do fly by, she is a teenager, but for me they both are my little girls.

Happy Mother's Day!

Hi Cris, thanks for your comment..
Hope you enjoyed your family birthdays and Mother's Day.
My Mother's Day??
Nice spring weather, migrating birds arrived including Hummingbirds.
My son invited us for dinner and we enjoyed french cuisine at La Palette, Toronto.
And a Mother's day card arrived from Sweden:)
To answer your other question about my Birthday cakes. They are my own creations.
I love to bake & cook.

At sunday I wished to walk to a big fleamarket. We had wonderful summer weather.
My sun is now 16 and has his first girlfriend...and suddenly everything changes

I am not a mom yet, but I can imagine what you feel. Beatiful blog! It´s my first time here and I will come back! ;-)
I want a house just like this one you have on the top. I dream with a simple life, with peace, flowers, fresh air... Kisses for you and your son!

Some of the growing up steps that they make are both exciting and poignant at the same time for us mothers...
A belated Happy Mother's Day, Cris!
