The 52 Week Project – A portrait of my son, once a week, every week, for one year.

9/52 — Here he is, pleased as punch to be celebrating his big cousin’s 5th birthday at Chuck E. Cheese. Lord, does this boy make me smile. I’ve had a hard week, a really hard week, but no matter how difficult it gets, Roman puts a smile on my face. Before I became a mother, I used to hear mamas say things like that and I would roll my eyes. If only I had known then: the indestructible, indescribable joy of motherhood.

    Oh just stop! He’s getting SO big!!

    I almost feel ashamed how I would scoff in my mind at moms when they would say such crazy things about how much they loved their kids. And now, I feel so incredibly lucky to be a mom myself: )
