Rainbow Wrap Dress & A Lesson From My Baby

I love, love, love this dress. There is something so classy sophisticated about a smart wrap dress and I'm digging everything Mara Hoffman.

I also love and throughly enjoy being a mother to my baby boy. Words truly fail to capture how much I love him and the way I love him.  I've definitely discussed this before. However, what I find myself loving the most about being a mother is the fact that it reminds me of the way I used to be. The way I'm sure we all were at some point. 


There is this beautiful innocence and bravery that you possess as a child that you lose as you age. As a mother, not only am I afforded the opportunity to experience the world through my son's eyes daily, but as a result of our relationship, I can try to re-infuse some of his attitudes into my own.


I feel this most with the fact that right now, he literally only knows a world of infinite possibilities. When he asks for something, he seemingly knows exactly what he wants and refuses to compromise. Something so insignificant as the shopping cart he rides in and the fact that he wants to hold the back as opposed to sitting in the front, he makes it known. He also makes it known without really entertaining the notion that this may not happen.


The most perfect example of the law of attraction or "you have not because you ask not". Demanding what you want and seeking it with no abandon.

Sidebar: this isn't always as noble in a toddler as I'm painting it out to be here, but I'm sure you get the point:)
