We all have (or had) them, a mom. Yesterday we visited our local park with some friends and their daughter. It was nice to see the kids interacting with each and better yet, it was fantastic to see how the parents interacted with their children. My wife and I enjoyed the moment. We’ve had a couple talks in recent days about how a new phase of our life is already underway. So far our life together has been pretty charmed. We really don’t have any major complaints with our life.
Nope, no major complaints. So as we embark upon our journey of parenthood I feel it’s important to give a proper shout out to moms. Just like some of our other holidays moms, you deserve the recognition and praise all year, not just one day. Moreover, I dedicate this post to the very influential people of society, mothers.
For starters, blogging rocks. I’ve met so many wonderful people via blogging and many happen to be moms. Since I publicly announced my wife’s pregnancy in January, I’ve been so grateful for all your input. Every single one of you has been a huge asset in my life. Whether it’s advice on baby names, schooling, doctors, hospitals, daycare, diapers, etc. All of you have been extremely helpful and supportive. As a certain mommy blogger put it, “Egan, you’re part of the club now“.
Personally I put my mom on a pretty high pedestal due to the circumstances she overcame. Make no mistake about this, she’s not flawless, but she did her best to raise her kids in a happy environment. There were some rough times in my household following my parents’ divorce, yet never did I feel unloved. I still feel special in my mom’s eyes, even at the ripe age of 34. Mom, you’ve always been so great at humoring my active mind, hyperactive actions, and boundless curiousity. You allowed me to grow into the person I am today. Thank you mom and bloggers for being who you are, welcome influences on my life!
