What? How did that happen? I blinked and here we are!
I feel like I have been sappy 100 times over and there is nothing left to say! I know that you know how much I love you. I'm not sure you will fully understand until you have your own child.
There is a part of me that would give anything to go back to the day you were born and do it all over again. Oh the memories! I would happily watch another million dance steps, buy a gazillion bobby pins, pulling your hair out...I mean up in buns, Polly pockets, Build a Bears still in boxes, Bedtime songs, Broadway tunes, definitely 500 more Junie B Jones, Watching softball games, making fun of Diddy, going on random car rides just so we can sing Alabama as loud as possible, and so much more. I might even sit through 1 track meet, but that's pushing it!! hahaha
I have loved being your mom through everything, including track meets! You are the best part of me and my biggest joy!
The part that I do not say enough is how excited I am to be your mom during this time in your life! It's different and I think we are both are learning how to do this adult thing. But seeing you going after the things you want, learning your thoughts and dreams, and passions makes me so happy! Some times it is hard for me to let you go, but that's only because I don't want to miss a second of your life. You really are to blame for that!!! My little cling on!!! Now you know how I felt when you had to touch me every second of your life!
Words cannot describe how I feel when I see you in Haiti! My heart nearly explodes. Your joy, compassion, bubbliness, love quadruples when you land in Haiti. Your eyes sparkle even more. I love it!
I love where you are going and all the new things in your life! I can already tell you are set up for some great adventures!! I am so proud of you!
So yes, I would go back and it it all over again, but I'm also content being your parent at this stage.
I love you infinity and beyond, forever and ever.
Now that Lacey is off at college, I find myself with way too much time to think. For me, thinking leads to worrying and worrying leads to worst case scenario. So I thought maybe blogging and putting some of my thoughts down might help myself. You never know, at some point I might come up with a clever thought or idea in the process!
