On this Mother’s Day I was away for a trip. The first part of the trip was for the work I do and the second to take in what Germany has to offer. Often new experiences and stepping away from New York has helped me grow as a photographer.
Mother’s Day was always a strange day because my children’s bday would land on or near Mother’s Day. It was alway felt like a day of being proud of my children, not necessarily of hey, I’m a mom and this is MY day. It always felt like a combined celebration of wow, these are my children and they are AMAZING!
Just a few folks gently reminded me that I would be away for my children’s bday AND Mother’s Day.
“I booked the trip, I knew I would be away.”
“Do you miss them?”
“I miss my kids when they are in school. Of course!”
So why did I go? Because I am a confident mother. Not to sound like my sh*t don’t stink. But no one could ever challenge what my heart feels for my children.
Happy Mother’s Day to me and my children.
