eleven

Today is my big girl's birthday! 
I'm so proud of her. 


11 years ago, I was at the maternity. She came 5 weeks before due date, so I hadn't had time to worry about delivery. It was such a joyful and peaceful day. She came to this world and it was love at first sight. She made me a mother. She changed my life completely and I'm so happy she did.


What a lovely day today. A lot of mother and daughter time. This morning I had a special breakfast for her, and then I took her for lunch at the small Japanese restaurant next to her school. After school, while my mother was taking care of Swann, we both went for a walk on the Promenade plantée and enjoyed the sun, playing Uno on a bench. Tonight we will eat raclette, which she loves. A beautiful and special day that I will cherrish in my heart, for many reasons...









Now she is a beautiful 11 year-old girl and I can't put in words how much I love her!

Quel beau message et quelles belles réflexions sur le fait d'etre mère...
J'aime cette capacité que tu as à dire simplement,des choses bouleversantes.
Je me dis ça aussi en pensant à ma grande:c'est elle qui m'a permis de devenir mère,d'expérimenter ce lien si spécial et unique.
Happy 11 à ta grande...
Je répond à ton mail dès que je trouve plus de 15 minutes d'affilées rien que pour moi ;-)

Merci Nora! Ah oui, c'est unique ce lien avec nos enfants, et ils ont chacun un rôle particulier à jouer dans nos vies...
Pour le mail, je comprends, moi non plus je ne trouve pas le temps de répondre aussi vite que je le voudrais ;-)
Bonne soirée!

Congratulations to you on your beautiful daughter and Happy Birthday Florina. Having an 11 year old feels like it's a long way off... but I know that moment will arrive in a flash.

Thank you Alexis! Yes it goes fast, but at the same time it feels like a long time ago when I first held her in my arms at the maternity... Time flies but you live so many important things!
