Yesterday after brunch I celebrated mother’s day by driving the girls around I-465 with the windows down and music blaring. At one point I looked back and both of them had their heads out the window. One of my kids even had her mouth open. Her cheeks were flapping.You know which girl it was.
It felt good to be a mother yesterday. Breakfasts in bed are getting more sophisticated. My coffee arrives almost right. The gifts I receive are as thoughtful and beautiful as ever. I feel like my kids know me. And like me. And that makes me feel satisfied. I don’t know what the upper teen years with them will be like, but so far I love it. Perhaps it is the calm before the storm. We are all as carefree as ever right now, and motherhood is …dare I say…kind of easy.
