Dia de las Mamas

Celebrating Mother's Day with my mom

I am the luckiest mom in the world! Seriously. Four years ago I just had chubby cutie-pie Vivi, who was just learning how to sit up. Then two years ago I was pregnant with Maya, chasing around my little monkey Vivi. Then last year, my first Mother's Day with both Maya and Tonito- with Maya crawling around and doing her little dances, and Tonito warming up to me with his sweet hugs and dimply grin. Now, just a year after Tonito came home, I have 3 loving and gregarious kids, who succeed in laughing all day and lightening everyone's moods. I wish I could make time go slower- such a cliche, but such the truth! How can I capture this time when they are so perfect and innocent, and stretch it out to last forever? I wish I didn't have to spend so much time cleaning my house for showings so I could relish in their silliness more often. Here they are playing hide-and-seek with each other on Mother's Day:
