Putting the links to my outfits I wore yesterday up today as my babies siesta the afternoon away, after I fold some laundry I will be joining them. Good afternoon or should I say sweet dreems 🙂
seasons change; as do priorities …..
Today we said goodbye to our Hudson as he went off to full day school. My eyes saw a handsome young boy with a sharp looking haircut wave at me as he ran into the school yard with his peers, but my heart saw a little boy with his “boo” over his shoulder in onsie pajamies.
Full disclosure my heart is shattered by recent and current events !!!
Im scrambling at where my little boy and his dog have gone.
I remember when I was coming home from my trip, on one hand I had a lot of people/strangers upset at me and on the other, I had my family who was literally cheering for me that I was coming home.
On the plane ride home I watched the movie “Goodbye Christopher Robin” and found myself doing a whole life assessment.
I couldn’t help relate my Hudson to Christopher Robin. Before I started documenting my childrens life it was just Hudson & I, and Hudson and his dog. I hired photographers and web developers because I knew he was something great. My blog was actually titled “Hudson alamode” in the beginning.
In the movie young Christopher says “my childhood was great, it was the growing up part that was hard”. And then he blamed his father for writing a story about him and not a book for him.
My top priority is to give my children a great, no an exceptional life! I want them knowing that they are and will always be my number one top priority!
So here’s my promise to you my dear sweet children, Birdalamode is still part of us and perhaps it will always be, we are going to keep documenting as long as we are having fun. You only get one childhood and we are going to make everyday count. It goes far too quick if you ask me. – far too quick indeed.
Good luck today my dear Hudson. Mommy sure loves you with all her heart! For you see you and me share something no one else in our family shares. For a short moment there was only you, no siblings, no blog or IG, you were the only thing I put my energy into and I never regret a second of it. And with this new school year I promise to make this year about you and your needs I want you to always know I will be here for you.
Oaxaca is so beautiful, I loved the colorful buildings and the cute cobblestone streets.
Unfortunately my trip was cut 6 days short. I got sick from mastitis and thankfully was able to make it home to my little Brooklyn. We are still nursing and life is grand!
I’d be a liar if I said I haven’t been sad about my trip ending the way it did, but ce la vie (such is life) we live , we learn , we find out who are true friends are and we move on. Up & Up I always say.
Can’t believe this was a week ago. I was so nervously excited. I went to bed and woke up thinking I wasn’t going to be boarding a plane. But after a couple phone calls, my driver showed up & I was going. My plan was to make the best of it and have a blast as I left my family, nursing baby for the very first time. And I can honestly say I tried my very best to make a go of it. No regrets. No one to blame. Just a mom with a pink suitcase boarding a plane waiting for adventure to await.
