Let this never be forgotten:
And you’re right when you say you miss us
Right in the sense, that I miss us, too
In the jump from one child to two
We often get trampled / By our two little beasts
They yell and they scream / They demand us without cease
And we give to them / Not because we must
But because we want to / So in this, let us trust:
Our family, our bond / The foundation upon which we grow
The truth that what is larger than us / Is worth every NO!
And the yeses, too
But the little ones must know boundaries / Even when their tears make us queasy.
Have faith love, believe / In what we do every day
That it matters to more than just us / But to our whole family, for which we pray.
I love you – and I believe in you
Happy Mothers Day! The transition from one to two children has been amazing. There’s no doubt we were parents with Giuseppe, but bringing our little Frankie into the mix has sealed the deal.
Before I write more, let me explain this: it’s a blog about us – we are SoCochrane. By us, I mean the four of us. I will upload pictures, videos and blogs here. I want us to have a permanent, growing and dynamic record of us to access anytime and anywhere we have internet access (with, which the way the world is going, should be just about everywhere and all the time).
You know I’m a story teller — and much of that has grown into the visual side of things now. I’m very excited to tell our story here for our own enjoyment and reflection. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Happy Mothers Day!
