When I was a toddler, I told my mom that I wanted to have 100 babies when I grew up. Later, as a grown up, I would daydream about what it would be like to be pregnant, to give birth, to care for a baby. The reality is better (and harder too) than the daydream.
When she snuggles into me to nurse, or when she reaches her arms out for me to hold her, or when we play and she explodes into a full body giggle, I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. Being Clementine's mum is my favourite thing.
I'm thrilled to be included in a group of 17 other mums and dads, documenting the art of babywearing for the Sakura Bloom Sling Diaries, vol iv.
I wear Clementine in the pure sling in twilight (not in stock but this one is similar).
Lovely Pia came for a walk with us, and snapped these photos (editing by me). Her daughter, Laly, and Clementine have such a sweet relationship. Laly calls her Baby Tine and they like to hug and give each other kisses.
