It has been 80 degrees the past two days in Sacramento. Without a cloud in the sky. Faren and I have taken several walks through the greenbelt behind her house. Wearing our babies, inhaling fresh air courtesy of the looming oak trees, reminiscing about our wild times in southeast Asia, and talking about motherhood. We lounged by the pool, dipping baby toes into the water and soaking in a few rays of sunshine.
I confided in Faren, sometimes I look at Giovanna and think, I feel complete. My life is so rich with her in it. Faren assured me that she feels the same way about Haven. Purposeful. Complete.
For those of you curious about motherhood, this is what it’s like. Being a mom is like falling in love. Everyday. Over and over again.
