It’s the time of the year again when the Greenheart trees in Suriname turn to yellow and shower their petals on the ground, making it a bed of flowers. This happens usually around August to November, a sign that the dry season has come.
After two years of being married to my Dutch husband (and after receiving our Report of Marriage documents), I finally decided to change my surname to his. It wasn’t really a top-priority to change my last name, but I did it anyway thinking it would be a lot easier to apply for my son’s passport and stay permit if both his parents
My family spent Mother’s Day having brunch with a few of my MOM friends and their family in Suriname. We’re so glad Nikolaj was well-behaved the whole time, though he was slightly annoyed when hungry. 😛
Being a mother is indeed the toughest but most rewarding job in the world. The no-sleep and no-freedom moments are all worth it when you see that little bundle of joy all happy and healthy. I really appreciate all the hardwork every mom had to go through in order to raise those tiny humans. I appreciate my Mom more and more every day, without her effort and love, I wouldn’t be where I am now.
Happy Mother’s Day to my Mom and to all the Super Moms out there!
