If I ask you to to tell me the first thing that pops into your head when I say the word summer, I'm sure it would be something wonderful like vacations to exotic places or swimming in the pool. If you asked me to answer the same question, I'd say "Them5". Who?, you ask... Them5...My5...My Fab5.
The reason may not be clear, but I'll try to explain. You see, I'm a mommy to 5 amazing human beings. They have brought me joy since I knew each of them were growing inside me. Each of their stages has come with challenges, but I can sincerely say that each stage has been filled with wonderful adventures and much joy.
I used to be a stay-at-home mom, now I'm a working mom. The one thing I miss so very much is summers off with my kids. Waking up late with them, making them breakfast and playing all day till we fell asleep together watching a movie in the living room.
This shot, is a tiny piece of our summer together. We went for a walk...a long walk with our dog Lily. We talked about anything that came to mind, we laughed and giggled and when they saw the coquito man, all I heard was, "Mommy!!! Please!!! Can we have?".
We love our time together. Even just having some yummy coquitos on a long walk to nowhere in particular, as long as we are together.
Sometimes the simplest things in life can be the greatest.
