Flashback Friday: Mommy & Me

We all live for that one moment. For me, it was when Zoey came into our lives. We couldn’t have been more prepared for her arrival. We were financially, physically, and emotionally stable. Then she arrived and basically rocked our world. Threw us for a loop.

Sleepless nights, endless cries, skin rashes, emergency visits, feeding challenges, etc. It was everything and nothing that I’ve expected all at once.

Because of her, I’ve experienced the worst heartaches and best heartfelt moments. The worst moment of my life came just last year, when she was in a bicycle accident and basically split her forehead open. Going into surgery and seeing her suffer through eight stitches was probably the lowest point of my parenthood experience. She’s fully recovered now and the scar is barely visible. I was very adamant about properly taking care of her scar for six straight months since it was in the middle of her forehead.

And then there are many many highlights. Like before falling asleep, she’ll say “Mommy, you are my best friend and true love. Don’t leave me.” And very silly moments like when she’ll promise me to be a good girl, she’ll reiterate “And when I promise, I never break my promise. EVER.”

So this Flashback Friday, I’m sharing some of our experiences together as Mommy & Me!

  1. You guys are so beautiful together! And coming from the bearer of a split forehead scar, it’s actually something I wish was more visible! Mine is almost completely gone, and I kind of miss it! 🙂


  2. This is so special. Your family is beautiful and the pictures show the love in your eyes as a mommy! I love this post! Thanks for sharing :).
