Stretch Marks: I Love My Wife’s Symbol of Becoming a Mother

My wife gave birth over 17 months ago, but she’s still left with the scars of the birth. When I look at my wife’s stomach I don’t see awful scars on a slightly wobbly stomach. Maybe that’s what she sees, but I don’t. Ok, I’m not going to lie, I do see the slightly wobbly stomach – I’m just being honest here, please don’t hit me. And of course, I do see the stretch marks.

#MySundayPhoto – A Mother’s Milk on Mother’s Day

They say that when you become a parent, that you give a lot of yourself to your children. You give your time, your money, your effort, your love and in the above case, you literally give yourself. What you see in this weeks photo is a rather decent stash of breastmilk. It’s a draw in our freezer that literally contains a small part of my wife. Had it not been for the photo, that last sentence might have sounded exceptionally weird. But it’s not weird. It’s a draw full of life. And if it wasn’t for the woman who created…

Virtually everyone who has a parenting blog does a Mothers Day gift guide. So I will apologies for lumping myself in with the herd by giving you yet another one. I am going to make this slightly more relevant to me, and do one based on a mother’s first Mother’s Day, not that that’s anything new, but welcome to the world of blogging!
