Me and My Mini

Twenty seven years ago I was blessed with my first child. A daughter. Being only a few weeks over nineteen years old, I had no idea what to do with this dark haired, chubby angel that was placed in my care. Like most new moms, I learned pretty quickly and boy was I super lucky and especially blessed! She was the best baby EVER. She always had a smile on her face and the sweetest nature that you could imagine.

That sweet sunny nature has remained with her throughout her entire life. She just became a mommy for the first time and I can honestly say she was born to be a mom. I respect and admire her thoughtfulness, generosity, kindness to all people and things big and small and also her precious wonder at the simple things. I’m sure that’s why she’s the most serene person I’ve ever had the honor of not only knowing but more importantly being able to call my mini♥️

        1. He’s a little chunky butt too because Mommy is nursing him, so it’s hilarious when anyone with boobs holds him because he’s constantly “pecking” and looking for a snack😂

    1. Haha thanks!! We’ve been confused as sisters before. I had her at the very tender young age of 19 so we pretty much grew up together. Except it’s her love and kindness that keeps her looking young. Myself, it’s my meanness and profane nature that does so for me. LOL!

        I am actually thinking of doing a small piece (of post) featuring you. In this picture, you look beyond badass and oh well, I’d stop here cause you’re married and when I try to appreciate a woman’s beauty, it comes out as flattery. English is my 2nd language so I hope you’d never get pissed at me and punch me through this stupid computer’s screen! (Amir pulls his little blankie to his face).

        1. I would be honored. I totally understand the language barrier with second languages. English is my 1st language but I do speak Italian but I don’t always get it right.😂😂

        5. With just one kiss

          you stole your heart

          like a butterfly

          that you take the flower

          tell me why

          if in my eyes

          it’s a love trap

          or a true feeling.

          Because I was fleeing from life

          I did not feel an emotion

          now that you kidnapped me

          I understood the lesson

          what did you give me?

          one day I will say it

          the things I dreamed of

          I will reveal them to you.

          How will it be,

          tell me

          tomorrow and then

          if you will not be there

          the heart will split

          I will sink into the sea

          I can not swim

          you do not let me drag you.

          Feel the heart as it beats

          he does not listen to me anymore

          it feeds on your affection

          do not let it burst.

          Love confuses me

          a sun inside lights up

          you do not have a single moment

          get out of my mind.

          Of my fragility

          I could even die

          please do not flee

          but keep me with …

          Did I nail it??
          I had to take out my tablet and jot a few times😊
          Thanks for the challenge!

          Yay! So I made you practice your Italian a bit. Which part of Italy are you or your forefathers from? Or is it just a love of a second language? And now, don’t tell me you are Scorpio cause I had a Girlfriend who was Italian and Scorpio too. (Amir scratches his head).

        32. It was Mother’s Day, 2016. We had been picking wildflowers in the woods near our home. I remember this because we both have terrible allergies and we were both sneezing and cracking up laughing, because wildflowers are truly beautiful but not allergy friendly at all. We rose tea that day and just spent the day together delighting in one another’s company.

          Wow…exactly the kind of thing I will do happily with my own mom 🙂 The glow on your face is so irresistible. These beautiful copies of ourselves that we leave behind complete circle of life. Since you don’t chat online, at least we can Email each other. There seems a lot of potential for sharing our life lessons with each other. Btw, is Bella your pen name or real?

        34. Sorry, Amir, I don’t feel comfortable talking outside of WP. I am totally flattered from your kind encouragement and support, but I am a VERY happily married woman and I would be very uncomfortable if my husband (no matter how innocent the communication was) was doing the same. I am, however, happy to hear your opinions, comments, etc. on my blog posts as I consider you a part of my blogging family. No hard feelings??
