I wrote this a little while back shortly after having my second child, my daughter Raphaela.  I enjoyed reading it now, a couple of years later, to remind myself of that very special (crazy) season and all of the emotions that I was going through.  I think any mom who is currently in this season would be able to relate and maybe add some more thoughts?

…While lying in my son’s bed last night while he fell asleep, I began to think about my parenting journey thus far.  A humbling experience to say the least, and many lessons learned.  Here are some thoughts that came to mind, little notes that I direct to my two children in order to make sense of this most wonderful and at times, challenging season.
