A mother is a child’s first best friend, first teacher, first fashion icon and designer, first playmate, first hairdresser, and the first woman who first thought of her child so amazingly. A child is a mom’s #1 fan, her treasure, her sunshine and her storm, someone that she will protect at all cost, a younger version of herself, her anchor that will keep her grounded and strong. Together, they surge through life spreading love and courage. However, a mother and child relationship isn’t all unicorns and rainbows.
