A Mother’s Initiation
You’ll notice with my outfit a brand new accessory that may (or may not) go well with my look. A pink and purple rolled-paper, straw and bead necklace made by Miss Kaia in her kindergarten class. My first piece of jewelry from one of my children.
To be completely honest, I never understood how adults could wear such tacky kid-made creations in public. But when I opened my present on Mother’s Day, an overwhelming sense of love came over me and I wore my necklace with great pride. I finally understood. An official initiation into motherhood.
