Good Monday morning, all!
This past week has been crazy busy for our family. We celebrated our son’s 7th birthday, attended many dance rehearsals, our daughter’s FIRST dance recital, and of course, celebrated Mother’s Day.
Our son, Roman, is 7. I still can’t believe it. How did that tiny, little baby that I brought home from the hospital turn into such a big boy? Bittersweet.
HAPPY 7TH BIRTHDAY, SWEET ROMAN!
And of course, we also celebrated Clairisse’s first dance recital. It was a joy to share the stage with my daughter. I think she is a bit of a ‘born star’ as her Mama.
Here is Claire taking in the fame during the dress rehearsal. She was so mesmerized with the stage and the audience, that she simply forgot why she was on stage. She did manage to smile like the Cheshire Cat all along. [Please disregard my annoying commentary and ‘dance mother’ prodding.]
She dazzled us with her ballerina moves during the recital though. 😉
Here she is backstage ready for the show to start. I love this little girl. As much as I try not to be the typical stage mother, there is a part of me that hopes she enjoys dancing as much as I do.
Just to keep things fair all around, here is a little picture of Ascher doing his best to outshine big brother and sister:
Of course, all of this running around as of late means that there simply is no time for a moodboard this Monday. I’m fine with that. I hope you are, too. I adore my children and it was really wonderful sharing such milestones with them this week.
I hope you and your families are enjoying each other’s company and not taking every precious moment for granted. Like I tell my children, “You only get one mother and father and they only get one YOU!”
