Being a mother has it’s challenges, but I honestly can’t name anything worth naming. Least nothing that trumps all the joys of being a mom.
Fine, there is the “responsibility” element that can get heavy at times. i.e. Being the provider, Being the good example, Practicing what I preach, Remembering feeding, Enforcing healthcare and exercise, etc.
There are so many things that I never used to remember to do for myself, but having a child brings that requirement to never forget any of this…not even for a second. To be honest, it’s made my life better.
If not for remembering to feed my son, I’d have a poor diet.
If not for reminding him to brush and be clean, I’d probably do that less for myself.
If not for getting him a doctor and a dentist, I’d probably never make those appointments for my own self.
I could go on forever…
So the responsibilities really make my life full and well! I guess that’s why I have such a celebratory attitude towards my time with my son.
I read somewhere that dating your child is a great way to instill a deep level of security, confidence and contentment in them. It teaches them to accept only genuine and good treatment from those who date them when they are adults.
Sunday came round and I didn’t have much planned, but in no time our day picked up quickly. My sister, Catarina, invited us to a live performance, but came by to pick Taelor up early.
Taelor was dressed up already in the lovely dress his Aunty River got him the week before. He looked just awesome.
By the time I arrived at the theater house, it had already begun, but I quickly deciphered that the play was entitled “The Little Prince” and based on the book – The Little Prince.
The Little Prince, first published in 1943, is a novella and the most famous work of the French aristocrat, writer, poet and pioneering aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. The plot revolves around a pilot whose plane has crashed in the Sahara Desert, and his conversation with a little prince from a distant asteroid who is visiting Earth. As the pilot repairs his plane, the little prince tells the story of his life, which includes visiting six other asteroids, each with a different adult, all of whom are fools. The prince also learns important life lessons from characters he has met on Earth.
We watched it in awe and were all fixated on each minute of it. Despite the sad end, it was such a beautiful story and certainly conveyed the message of Love. We gave our very best in applaud! It was amazing!
When that was over, we left to go to the movies at the cinema in Oakdale. Catarina came too.
We saw “Interstellar” and to be honest, I didn’t like it!! 😦
Poor Taelor was so confused too. I’d say the best part of it was getting to sneak in some chocolate cake for desert with our sandwich. I got to have the mint icecream, and Taelor had the vanilla. It was really nice being together at the cinema.
By the time we got home, Tae was half asleep. What a lovely day!
I’m also happy to announce that like the end to all successful dates, I got to give my little butterfly a big cuddly hug and smooch on his rosy cheeks. I just love him! ❤ ❤ ❤
