Wonder Who?

In becoming your mom I became Wonder Woman.

I changed from the inside. It probably happened as you were curled beneath my heart. You rubbed against it and once you were out, it kicked in…

fierce mode!

P1080415

I got new powers.

New strength.

New abilities.

P1080416

P1080417

But I did not get a shield.

P1080418

The slightest thing happens…

a look, a comment, an accident

and I realize I’m made of tissue paper.

I love you too much!

Magic Moments

Posted by Kim on Saturday Jul 4, 2015 Under Photoetry

This life.

Summer days with you.

Long and bright and hot hours with you.

Magic moments.

P1080381

This life.

Home with you.

Pool and beach and office playing with you.

Magic moments.

P1080380

This life is us.

It is ours.

We charm it with our laughter.

P1080391

Morning snuggles.

Gaming challenges.

Tickle battles.

Day after day after delightful day.

Our magic moments.

P1080334

P1080344

P1080349

P1080346

I live for our moments. It gives me breath.

The second I knew there was a you, the magic began.

Abracadabra.

In an instant I was spellbound.

P1080378

P1080379

You snuck into my heart like a little ghost.

I did not see you, but you were there.

Your presence filled me.

Your spirit moved me.

I loved you before I even knew you.

And once we met, I felt like I had known you forever.

Magic moments.

P1080355

This.

Life.

Love.

You.

That is all there is.

Magic moments.

Daddy-Oh!

Posted by Kim on Monday Jun 22, 2015 Under Photoetry

There is nothing that can take place of time with Daddy.

Daddy reigns.

Period.

P1080323

Since you were able to reach, you go to him.

Since you were able to talk, you ask for him.

Since you were able to walk, you run to him.

And I get it. I really do.

P1080326

He heals your wounds.

He turns your tears to laughter.

He takes any problem and solves it.

He has done the same for me. That is just the nature of his heart.

P1080328

He spends his time thinking of ways to make your life better.

Ways to make your world bigger.

He makes ordinary, extraordinary.

And you know this. You know he would do anything for you without you even needing to ask.

You two have an unyielding love and bond that is the most beautiful thing in life.

Happy Father’s Day.

Later Alligator

Peace out Kindergarten. It’s been real.

First day:

Last day:

IMG_20150604_073045

You have gone from one extreme to another. It has been pretty drastic. Your brain has grown and grown. And it has been an amazing ride!

You like me being there, but you crave your independence. You have kept me at an arm’s distance away. When I would see you in the hall you would rather just wave, but you tolerated my squeezes. You did not love the idea of me having lunch with you, so I only visited one time. And you did not let me go on your first field trip to sing Christmas songs at the nursing home. But, I am glad you are like that. I totally respect that. You are your own person. Confident in your own skin. Comfortable with your self. Ready to do what you need to do. I would not want it any other way. You rock!

I love you too much!

Boo hoo!!

It is your Kindergarten celebration, or festival, as you called it.

It is bitter sweet. What an amazing year. You walked into your Kindergarten classroom and jumped right in. You have loved school. I mean loved it. You have soaked every bit of it up. Your brain a sponge. You have made friends. You have grown into a really good reader. You solve math problems. You blow my mind. You always do. Since you were born, every day you prove to me that life is amazing. You were born with magic in your heart. You cast a spell on me and my life seems to good to be true. Your laughter is contagious. Your sense of humor so quick. And your compassion so deep.

I am ridiculously proud of you. I am your biggest fan. Well, I thought I was until I saw your best little friend, Zoey, clapping for you when your name was called. She almost bounced off the rug. I know that feeling. It took all I had to stay in my seat. I wanted to jump up and down. Scream at the top of my lungs. Laugh and cry. Because you are just so awesome.

i love you too much!

MOMents

Posted by Kim on Saturday May 9, 2015 Under First

I love being your mom every single day.  I’m crazy about you. That’s the gift for me.

But when you handed me this…

IMG_20150508_191132

IMG_20150508_190819~2

I lost it. Completely.

My heart jumped and my eyes instantly filled with tears.

I sank to my knees in front of you on my classroom floor. I smiled. I cried.

And you hugged me.

I squeezed you real tight because you are the most awesome thing in the world.

You are mine and I am yours.

Nothing could be better than that.

IMG_20150508_115038

Watching you grow is the best part of my life.

Thank you for being you.

I love you too much!

Happy Mother’s Day!
