Mother’s Day being tomorrow makes me miss one of my favorite new mamas back home in hali, my girlfriend christine.
( clearly i miss rosie, my own mom an awful lot, too!)
when i decided to move to toronto, i was really worried about how to tell christine that i was leaving. we had developed such a close bond over the years, and shared a lot of really great times, as all friends do. (and we still do!) when i decided to leave, she and her fabulous hubby were expecting their 1st baby, and i knew i wouldn’t be in NS for his arrival… and i truly struggled with this after getting here. (*sigh*) i really wanted to be there for them, and to see my new nephew come into the world and be there to congratulate his amazing parents.
but, as things happen without me~ he arrived safe, sound and as beautiful as ever all of 1.5 years ago….and, as i have only got to see him in person 2x, christine and fabien still manage to keep me in the loop with every step he takes via video and so many amazing photos. this is how i watch my little amazing nephew grow! i miss him, and his mama daily! that is why i think others need to see the amazing boy i get to see, and you will know why i brag about him the way i do :)
so, happy 2nd mother’s day, christine! kiss that baby for me, would you?!!! enjoy your day~ miss you, love you! ( we would normally quote SATC here, but i will spare you our cheesiness)
happy mother’s day to all the mamas out there, including my own~ rosalie may,… and my brazilian mama, maria riza! love you!
now for me, i need sleep. people buy these moms a lot of flowers for this day.
