Yesterday was a special day for me – my twin boys turned five!
Of course it was a special day for them, but children’s birthdays are something entirely different to a Mama.
As a Mother, you feel a sense of accomplishment at the mere feat of having brought them into another year – whole and thriving.
As a Mama, you toast yourself for navigating them around the potholes and pitfalls — You have a glass of wine and toast yourself, “Good Job!”.
After a couple more glasses you look around and think…
where the hell is my medal for raising these crazy kids!!!
Does it feel like yesterday that they were tiny babies – no, not exactly!
They are spirited, boisterous, happy, cantankerous children who live life in a big way.
