I swear I was just eating the final meal before I was scheduled to be induced. (Peanut butter, jelly sandwich and chocolate milk) I swear I just way laying in the hospital excited to meet our new baby. I swear I was just over exaggerating how to say the girl’s name because we spelled it with an O on purpose, a long O to be exact, a long O which says its name… I swear I was just starving waiting for Keith to get back with food, I swear I was just breathing in her new smell, and worried about ‘girl’ things for her. I swear it all just happened. How in the world is she 18? I was so nervous how was I ever going to be a mom to a girl. A beautiful take my breath away “it’s a GIRL” how was I ever going to do it. I did not know anything about being a mom to a girl.
Today that girly is 18. I swear she was just snuggled in my arms, only until her daddy came in the room. She was a daddy’s girl through and through. She always was. Now that she is older, she sometimes chooses me over him. I am not going to lie, my heart does a leap when she does.
Happy Birthday girly, thanks for making me a mom of girls! I love you
go hug your kids time moves so very fast
