I am a mom blogger who loves quotes.
So this Mother’s Day, I’m going to celebrate and share a few of my favorites with you! I’ve been thinking about motherhood and parenting in general lately. It may be my late night binging of The Handmaids Tale or I’m just at a particularly reflective point in my life. I was not raised by my biological mother, but had a beautiful maternal figure in my Grandmother (Baca). I miss her this year, maybe that’s why I’m reflective.
Piper made me a mother, she made me who I am today and I adore her for that. She saved me. It’s such a weird thing. The boys are also shaping who I am as a mother, they are teaching me patience.
Happy Mother’s Day Sweet Friends!
