I've been feeling all weepy about my kids going back to school this year. Usually I'm the mom doing the happy dance! But we got a really short break... and with my oldest in middle school... I don't know. Made me all nostalgic for when they were little!
I felt you. You were a pea. Then a lemon. Then an eggplant. I followed advice. I read twelve books. I quit coffee. Could you tell I was scared? I talked to you, sang to you... I wasn't ready. But then you were here. Ten toes. Eight pounds. Love. Big fat love. I held you. I fed you. I realized that I would spend my life doing things to make you happy -- and that that would make me happy. And then there are the times I want to give up. You've made me rethink my sanity....
I have never read this before, but I already live by this. If you have kids and aren't doing this, please reconsider how it affects your kids. I'm not a perfect parent by any means but being a parent is a blessing and our window of opportunity to really mold and impact our kids is limited.
Going to start compiling baby stuff I love! Thanks to my darling sister in-law Nicole for getting me hooked on Pinterest! q
