a nod to Moms
take a peek at life through the lens of a few amazing, instagramming moms.
Rebekah and Michelle
"Parenting is the hardest and best thing I've ever asked myself to do. Creating a life is a certain kind of unbelievable magic. And parenting asks me not just to work, but also to do my own personal, internal work. Raising a passionate, strong, self-aware kid is my most fervent goal. It's painful to watch her struggle, but it's incredible watching her dust herself off for another go and know that she values herself enough not to give up." - Rebekah
Amazing Parenting Moment: "Placing our daughter on my wife’s chest, followed a year and a half later by said baby saying “I can do it by myself”. My favorite moments are the ones when we sit together in bed and talk about life, a 2.5 year old will surprise you with their wisdom." - Michelle
Capturing our life, our moments, our adventures on my camera also comes with the territory. The littlest things are always important when you're a parent. For me, it's all about the moments that people generally tend to overlook. Moments that your memory fades through time. Moments that seem just like ordinary life.
The littlest things - they're the moments that I want to be reminded of when time passes and my children grow. That connection, that feeling, that memory.. I crave those. I'm obsessed with those.
Life and time waits for no one. Every free second is spent with my loves. Whether it's going on our little family adventures, taking sunset drives, relaxing at the beach, or just sitting at home watching a movie; I prefer to spend it with them.
There's nothing more extraordinary, rewarding, exciting, and emotional than being a mother. Being able to assist God in bringing a miracle into this world is such a great honor. They are the best parts of me. My blessings, my love, and my soul, rolled into 2 little humans...My sons.
Every moment, every challenge, and every feeling that comes with the title of "MOM", is what I love most about being a mother.
I love that social media gives us a forum for me to share some of our family's daily struggles, joys and anecdotes. It proves that Alex's world, or at least the part of the world that is represented by people who follow me on social media is aware, understands and accepts Alex for who he is. This gives me hope for the future.
My boys are 16 and 12. They are my heart and inspire me every day. My oldest has the purest heart and the strongest will. Nothing could have prepared me for having a child with autism. He's taught me so much! How to love him, accept him and be there for him, just as he is there for me, for his siblings and so many others. He is beautiful and I'm so lucky he is mine.
