Last year I celebrated Mother’s Day in maternity hospital. Chloe-Sofia was three days old, everything was new and I did not feel like real mother yet. This year, on the other hand, I decided celebrate in style in this floral maxi dress and my favorite pink mules. Since Gucci made mules super popular I fell for them.

With one year of motherhood under my belt I learned and discovered so many things about myself. Such as that I am much more resilient than I thought I was. I am also more mature, responsible and reliable than I believed I was. And the biggest surprise, I am very weak when it comes to setting rules. Luckily, Alex is more strict and Chloe-Sofia goes to daycare which does not leave much space for getting spoiled.

I found new respect for all my friends who had children before me. I am less judgmental and learned not to have any expectations. Especially when you go to restaurant or travel. When Chloe-Sofia throws a tantrum in public, I breath in and tell myself that this too shall pass. I learned to ignore people who don’t have children (yet!) and comment on her being too loud or behaving as a baby. Well, she is a baby and we should not expect children to behave like adults. How sad their childhood would be, right?


L’an dernier, j’ai célébré la fête des mères à la Maternité. Chloe-Sofia n’avait que trois jours, tout était nouveau. Je ne me sentais pas vraiment comme une mère. A l’inverse  cette année, j’ai décidé de célébrer avec style dans cette robe maxi florale et mes mules (charentaises) roses préférées. Depuis que Gucci a créé des mules super populaires, j’en suis tombé amoureuse.

Mais revenant à la maternité. Depuis que je suis mère, j’ai découvert tant de choses sur moi-même. Par exemple, je suis beaucoup plus résiliente, mature et responsable. Par contre, je suis très faible quand il s’agit de définir des règles. Dès lors, je réalise être moins stricte de ce que j’aurais pensé.

J’ai aussi appris à ne pas avoir d’attentes et moins juger les autres. Notamment lorsqu’on va au restaurant. Si Chloe-Sofia fait une crise en public, je respire profondément et me dis que cela va passer. Ainsi j’ai appris à ignorer les personnes qui font des commentaires. C’est un bébé et nous ne devons pas nous attendre à ce que les enfants se comportent comme des adultes. Autrement leur enfance serait triste, n’est-ce pas?

I love the dress, Miri! You look so pretty and I hear you about ignoring people who don’t have kids! They always complain because they simply do not understand! I’ve learned that a long time ago!
Have a wonderful weekend, love!

What a beautiful dress! I love the fit and pattern, as well as how the mules look paired with it, making for a perfect spring outfit. I loved reading about how motherhood has changed you and has taught you a lot about yourself, I’ve often heard it’s a journey of self discovery and that seems to be the case. Some people just don’t underhand what it’s like to travel or raise children until they themselves experience it, so they’re often ignorant in the comments they make, but sure enough, they’ll see, haha. Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a great day!
