Baby and Child Portraits Personal

Happy Mother’s Day!

This is my first Mother’s Day celebrating being a mom. In a short 9 months, Harlan has changed my life for the better. Sure, there are some days that I would love to have no responsibility and go out with the girls for a drink or travel somewhere on a whim, but I wouldn’t trade the lack of sleep (and boy is there lack of sleep) and crying jags for anything.

When I was pregnant with Harlan, I heard a segment on NPR which said “parents report significantly more meaning in their lives than non-parents, even though on a day-to-day basis parenting may be a grind.” (and boy can it be a grind…) And as corny as it sounds, it’s true. He’s given more meaning to the big and little things in my life.

Here’s a big cheers to all the moms out there. No one knows how hard your job is til they have it.
