MamaLete Day was so inspiring! I loved seeing all of your smiling, sweaty faces with your littles and your bumps.
This community of women is extraordinary.
The truth is though, every day is Mamalete Day. Mamaletes begin each day inspiring someone. Its a job that has no start or end time, a title that lives with you forever and a commitment that is life long. That is why this community is so important, we need to motivate each other to keep it up. We need to brag to one another when we have a big win, and we need to show off the smiling faces of the ones that we inspire.
So keep your posting, hashtag your photos and find friends. The MamaLete Community welcomes everyone with open arms.
I don’t know if this happens to the other moms out there, but every year of my Mother’s Day career … the week before Mother’s Day this is the conversation:
“What do you want to do on Sunday?” – VC
“What would make you sooooo happy?” – G2
“Mama, I know you want to get your nails done for Mother’s Day, riiiiight?” – G1
It means so much that they all want to do what makes me happy and as of now I’m super grateful that they love what I love because obvi the answer to all of those questions is running.
This is the 2nd year we have run the NYRR Japan Run in Central Park. I run the 4 mile race and then VC meets me with the Gs to run the kids race. Last year they were pretty small, and were in the youngest age group … but this year we had to wait our turn.
G1, clearly conserving her energy for the big race …
As we stood there, G1 must have asked me 10 times if I would stay with her, hold her hand and run beside her. And then we were at the start line, the minute the official yelled GO and she dropped me like a hot potato …
Thats my girl. G2 on the other hand stuck right by me
Spoiler Alert, G1 swept it. However G2 gave her a huge hug and said “Great job! You’re a fast runner!” and just like that I melted into a puddle of happy motherhood and walked on air for the rest of the day.
I hope you all had a great Mother’s Day, that you gave or were given hugs, love, and lots of thanks.
