A mother is also born

* * * * *

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new. - Osho

Then next Saturday, as Alice will eat her birthday cake, it will also be my second anniversary!

Things are very different with a toddler but also very similar: still breastfeeding, still baby wearing and still co-sleeping!

A lovely friend unexpectedly gave me a present on my son's first birthday, an anniversary of motherhood present. I had never really thought about that, but it was one of the most thoughtful things.

He will turn 2 a week after your sweetie. =)
