There are lots of first moments in my daughter's life. Being a full-time mother, I have the great opportunity to witness every precious day. Sometimes my dear husband envied the moment because he was not around when she does something for the first time. But I told him not to worry because I caught it in video or photo and besides, there are more of those moments to come.
My baby is now 18-month toddler. She can now carry objects on her own. Having said that, last Sunday, she and her dad surprised me. They knocked at the door and when I opened there she was, holding a beautiful bouquet of flowers with a trinket on top. Though her words were not clear, the love was loud enough. The best Mother's day ever.
Though it's my second moms day, still I considered it first as it was the first time that my girl can hug and kiss me to celebrate such special day. Thanks to my better half for making it all happened (next time your excuse to play outside won't work to surprise me, think of something else then).
In case you're wondering, in Ireland and UK, mother's day is celebrated on the forth Sunday in Lent. Whereas in most countries, it is celebrated on Second Sunday of May. While on Arab countries, they celebrate it on March 21st which vernal equinox. Nonetheless, the occassion is the same and that is to honour mothers and celebrate motherhood.
