I woke up today with a flood of memories. 1 year ago LO was born! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! These memories made me sad...sad for all the moments in time I missed being a working mom, sad for the times she won't need me anymore because she is growing up, sad for the times when I could put her down in one spot, go to the bathroom and come back and she still be there....
I was discussing this feeling with a friend during my lunch pumping and decided I needed an "attitude change." I have been able to change my way of thinking for a long time (very helpful when I am nervous...I tell myself that those are EXCITED butterflies.). So I decided: I'm not sad for things past, I'm very excited for what is coming!
So today is a HAPPY DAY!
Thank you Sarah.
Here is a picture of LO Loving icing :)
"Icing" you question????? Typically I'm not a advocate for youngsters eating this type of crap, but on a birthday, I guess it's ok. I planned for the fall out of a lifetime. I planned on puke, diarrhea and diaper rash, but was pleasantly surprised....she was fine! The icing even came out of her pretty dress.
