Metaphor of motherhood, 2017: "Seeing them climb up thru life on their on, and like any mother, I'm dying a thousand deaths, while silently witnessing their success"… I'm proud. And I'm also shameless. πŸ€— I'll try to become the best mother my children could expect. I pledge to raise independent children. I will applaud their achievements. I'll cry with their tears, and laugh with their smiles. I'll continue to unconditionally love and support them as they grow to become grounded and companionate… πŸ€—β€ #expatlife #MinasGerais #yalafamilies #parenthood_moments
