Yesterday I celebrated my first Mothers’ day as a mom. These past 10 months with Connor has made me realize just how difficult being a parent really is and has given me a new found appreciation for the many sacrifices my mom has made over the years. Being a single parent couldn’t have been easy for my mom, yet she did it whole-heartedly without complaint.This year Ev and I invited our immediate families over for brunch at our house. We served waffles with strawberries and whipped cream, omelets, bacon, hash patties, hash browns, and fruits. It was a good day filled with good food and great company. I am truly blessed to have such great mothers in my life.
