Happy Mama's Day!
Happy Mother's Day to all the beautiful, amazing and loving mamas out there! While we are moms everyday of the year, society at some point decided that a day was need to recognize and celebrate us. I think this was a pretty darn good decision! I think there are days that spouses and children and people that are not yet moms forget how much we do and how much we sacrifice as moms. Yes, this was a decision and choice we made, and one we would not change, but it is huge, it is demanding and it is hard work at times. We have let our bodies be taken over by tiny growing transforming beings for 9 months turning our once smooth bellies into mountains that never quite return to normal and are left with a road map of brightly colour marks. After 9 months of discomfort and nausea we bare the pain of child birth to bring into this world our most loved treasure. While the joy of giving birth is fantastic, the pain is not. But we do this to be moms. Some of us many times over. We wouldn't change this for the world.
