El Día de la Madre fue especial, aunque todos los días lo son si eres mamá. Pero quería celebrarlo un poquito porque últimamente tengo tanto trabajo que echo de menos a mi hija, acostumbrada a estar tanto tiempo con ella.
This year Mother’s Day was special, although every day is special if you are a mom. But I wanted to celebrate it specially because I have had so much work lately that I miss my daughter, as I was used to spend much time with her.
We had a little time “just for girls” as I made her up. She is nearly a young woman so make-up does not look like a disguise for her any more. She looked pretty. They are some advantages of having an almost teenager daughter. Usually I only read or listen abou the enthusiast experiences of little children’s parents, as if illusion and sweetness got lost when they grow. But although it is more difficult to deal with them, we have to enjoy seeing them grow and discovering life, with its good and bad things. And, in spite of the effort required, I think that our patience and comprehension with their mood changes (hormones!) and their rebelliousness, are proportional to the good moments and the communication level you get in return.
Ana is good on making miniatures with Fimo clay. I think she is better on crafts than on needlecrafts, not as me, but I am happy. The important thing is that she carries out creative activities that enrich, entertain and relax her. She gave me the ice earrings, what I like the most among the things she has made till now. She put them in an origami box she made with her father.
We phoned her grandmother by mid-morning to congratulate her on being a super mom and a super grandmother whom we love very much. Then we cooked together a delicious lasagna.
And we ended our day with an funny photographic session that I keep to myself. Seeing the photos fills me so I find them very personal.
