My most memorable mommy moment has to be a very recent one – I shared it on my Instagram a few days ago:
The loves of my life, sharing a very priceless moment, that I won’t be forgetting any time soon.
Lesedi is becoming a fluent reader and on this morning, he asked if his sister could please sit in his room so he can read to her.
This moment was big for me, because for the first time I understood why my 90-year-old grandmother keeps campaigning for us (her grandchildren) to stick together.
Now that I’m a mom of two, I can appreciate her request, because I want nothing more than for my children to have an unbreakable bond, regardless of where life takes them. I want them to stick together even when they don’t agree on certain issues and when sibling rivalry gets the best of them. I want them to overcome their battles together.
I think we’re on the right track because even though there is a 7 year age difference between them, their interactions are already filled with so much love.
Another memorable mommy moment that sticks out for me, is something my son said to me very randomly on one of our drives last year:
“Mom, I love joking with you. That’s my favourite thing”
Both these moments reminded me of how simple LOVE is. You see it in its purest form through children.
What is your most memorable mommy moment?
