Mom bestie

Building a close relationship with my 5- year old daughter has been a journey. Don't get me wrong, from the moment I felt those first kicks in my belly I love her fiercely and when I held her in my arms for the very first time, I knew she will have my heart forever.

However, as a parent you quickly learn that while you technically do hold all the control in the parent-child relationship, you really have no control. If your 2-year-old decides it is her life mission to refuse to wear socks and shoes, chances are she will be going shoeless that day.

The terrible twos were beyond terrible and three was in a completely different realm. . . like who came up with 'terrible twos??' Two was NOTHING compared to how terrible age three was.err..and four.

Today, Aulia' and I have a very special bond. We've work through many things and I now better understand her personality and what she needs and she better understand how she should behave and how to communicate in a way that benefits us all. Growth is a miraculous thing. The age of five has been a game changer. Whereas a year ago it was at times like a war zone during the bedtime routine, she now sweetly ask me to carry her up to bed. Some nights I can't hold back my tears of happiness thinking just how far we've come in her five short years. She love me. She really, really, really loved me. And the love I fell in return is so heartbreaking...in the best way possible.

You are mom bestie, darling!
My sweet little Aulia' :)
