My First Mother's Day
I got to have my first mother’s day today!!! Last year I was bummed out because I had wanted to be able to celebrate mother’s day but had no baby so couldn't. I am overwhelmed to finally be able to say yes, I am a mother! (I know he is still in the uterus but he counts!) I feel blessed and scared at the same time to be entrusted with another human being’s life. I wonder if I can do it and then I think “you have to he’ll be here in 4 ½ months.” I am already worried about him growing up and leaving home, it makes me sad to think about it, but that’s the whole point isn’t it? You have them so that they CAN grow up and hopefully become happy and productive adults that don’t hang on Mommas apron strings their whole lives. While I do know that is the point it doesn’t makes the thought easier. I guess all you can do is enjoy and be grateful for what you have right in front of you and not lament the rest.
Chris got me the diaper bag that I had been lusting after and I just love it. It matches our stroller!
I hope all the other mothers and mothers-to-be out there had a wonderful and restful mother’s day.
