Traveling with a kid is the most amazing thing ever...

Prior to having my baby, I was completely anti procreation. It is a very complicated topic for me, and brings up so much complex emotions. If you have read my other posts you would know that my parents even though I know now as an adult that they must have loved us, they did not show love and affection freely, and always called us burdens and liability. Suffice to say I grew up in a very pessimistic environment. Becoming an adult and emancipating myself from my childhood upbringing is a daily challenge and a daily struggle to see the positive in everything.

Now that I am a mom, some days I am completely speechless and my heart feels like its gonna explode out of my chest from the immense feeling of love and awe that I have for this tiny human.
I use to think that travelling with a kid would be hard. But as he grew into his little personality, I find myself more and more excited to share things with him, and see his reactions and expressions as he discovers the wonderful and amazing things in the world for the first time.

I love love love the ocean, and beaches, and sand, and sunshine, and really there is really not much that I do not love. We have traveled to the beach before, but this is the first time he is more expressive, basically as soon as we got to the resort and put our bags down in the room, I grabbed him and ran for the beach. And I was so pleased that I was able to capture these pictures that shows his emotions as he experience the ocean and the waves for the first time in his life that he can probably remember. 

It was so hilarious cuz he kept thinking his hands are dirty when he gets the sand on it, because usually if anything is on his hands it's dirty, so he was so confused as to why I am not cleaning his hands for him. 

And so no one is as surprised as me about how much I enjoy motherhood, and all the experiences that comes with it, and I never thought it would be possible to love and be in awe over so many little things. And its such a tremendous joy to witness him experience things for the first time. 

Do you have kids? Are you awestruck by every minuscule thing that your kid does? If you don't have kids, do you find it annoying as I once did when people with kids won't shut up about their kids?
