When did a Decade become so short????
My baby is 10 today. TEN people. As in Double Digits. A whole decade old. How did this happen????
I spent yesterday thinking about it all day. I remembered bringing him home. I remembered the labor and the birth. I remembered everything I did the day I went into labor. I remembered everything that happened throughout the pregnancy. I remembered the 2 miscarriages, the feeling that I would NEVER have a baby of my own, the endometrial biopsy, the hormone replacements, the spotting, the "miscarriage" scare, the borderline placenta previa, the uterine growth deficit (it just stopped growing at 36 weeks), all of it.
And I wouldn't change one bit of it.
I love my son. I love him more than I ever thought I could love anything. I hate how I have to be the disciplinarian. I hate how I lose my patience at times because in my heart of hearts I KNOW that should be a better mom. I hate that he's not a baby anymore. . . . . .
He is my joy, my heart and my life. I can't imagine what I would be if I did not have him in my life.
I've loved every moment, every laugh, every tear, every fear, every hug and every kiss.
I don't deserve to be his mom and I am thankful every day that I was blessed to have him.
Happy Birthday Sweetie.
May you have many, many more decades of joy and laughter.
Thank you for YOU!
