Today I have a 1-year-old. I’ve been a mommy for 365 days.
I have an amazing sense of relief, gratitude, accomplishment, pride and love as I look over the past year. It’s been an amazing journey that went by in a breeze. Sleepless nights, midnight feedings and unending diaper changes blur my perspective – yet the year was so full, so vibrant and so fulfilling!
I realize – it’s true. Childhood is joy, laughter, excitement, delight and discovery. And mommy hood is all of those same things – with a little fear, uncertainty and anxiety mixed in. The ability to live life through a child is the most amazing human experience.
Today I’m celebrating childhood, celebrating mommy hood and celebrating my greatest blessing.
Happy 1st Birthday Mary Louise – I’m so proud to be your mommy!
