#throwback to 2 years ago, meeting my little girl for the first time. I can’t believe how fast the time has gone and how much she has grown and changed, yet stayed the same on so many levels. Her personality has been strong from day 1!
Nothing prepares you for all that motherhood is - no matter how (cough, cough) old you are when you have kids, or how many friends have gone before you. The way your life is forever changed cannot be explained.
I have heard other mothers say that it is a privilege to be “mom” to their kids. And honestly, I thought that was a weird expression and didn’t understand it for a long time.
But I get it now.
The privilege to be part of raising a little human, the privilege to see her explore and delight in the world, the privilege to teach her and correct her and help her become the best version of HER.
I have been humbled beyond belief, and become a better version of ME (most days ) because she is part of my life.
I cannot wait to watch her as she learns what it means to be a big sister this fall. For sure, there will be some ugly tantrums and hard times in the adjustment. But there is always beauty in struggles, and this is part of her journey as much as ours as parents.
Happy Birthday, Little C. May you know just how loved you are!! #allthefeels #momlife #motherhood #birthday #2ndbirthday #childhood #toddlerlife #rdapproved #memories #postpartum #healthypregnancy #healthypostpartum #parenting #parenthood #nostalgia - 6 minutes ago
