Kind Words

Aarika

“Although I am often hard on myself, and on a daily basis I think I am doing this whole motherhood thing wrong and letting my kids get away with too much / yelling too much / letting my kids watch too much TV / being too strict (I could keep going on), our photos from Anna-Liisa made me realize what I can’t see. That we laugh a lot. That we love each other a lot. That I may actually be doing okay at this motherhood gig. And although my life can be chaotic, lonely, stressful, and messy, it’s also pretty beautiful. It’s funny how spending an ordinary evening in your own house with a stranger taking pictures of you sitting on the kitchen floor with your daughter in pajamas can make you appreciate what you have.” - Aarika
