This week marked 3 years since I first became a mother to our energetic little boy Ayyoub. These few years have truly been the journey of my life, from the unforgettable moments to the emotional rollercoasters, to feeling like my heart is going to burst with love for him and his little sister Asiyah who was born 21 months later.
As challenging as it has been, I wouldn’t have it any other way. As difficult as it has been I am constantly looking for ways to make it a safe and comforting environment as a family and individuals and children growing up in this crazy world.
I came from a corporate workaholic lifestyle, working 8-6, sometimes 8-8, followed by rushing to the gym at least 4-5 times a week, and spending the remainder of my evenings socializing with my best friends. It was a fast paced lifestyle I sometimes dream of right now, a lifestyle where everything revolved around me.
And now, everything revolves around the responsibility of my home, my marriage and my children and our life as a family…With that, I hope you will stick around and follow me on my motherhood journey.
