I had a inkling, an intuition if you will; Yet when I saw those two little lines on the test my heart began to pound. From this moment I know nothing would ever be the same. For this was the start of my new world.
You, tiny, little person forming inside my body; needing me for every essence, and in every possible way. From the first flicker of your heart, to finding out if we needed Pink or Blue I relished those moments. As your body grew and so did mine I knew there was nothing I’d never do to make sure you were happy. Finally it was the time to meet your sweet baby face.
As they placed you in my arms, my heart burst with love, and my eyes filled with tears because you were the most perfect thing I’d ever seen. Ten little fingers and ten little toes all flawless.
Larry Barretto says, ““Babies are bits of star-dust blown from the hand of God. Lucky the woman who knows the pangs of birth for she has held a star.”
I’ve been a mother now for five years, and a fool I was to ever take my mother for granted. I’m sitting here writing this when I should be sleeping yet I’m moonstruck by the faces of my three sleeping babies. The Beauty of creation in such tiny bodies.
First-To my three beautiful children, I hope I am enough. I hope you know how much I love you all and how I’d die for any of you in a heartbeat. I hope you know I love you so much sometimes I don’t know how to express it into words. I hope that one day you will look back and say “I had the best mommy.” I want you to know I’d give you the moon and sun if you asked.
To my three beautiful children, I hope you see the joy you bring me every day. I hope you know without a shadow of a doubt that I love you. I hope you know it breaks my heart every time I see you cry. I want to kiss every tear and be able to take away all your pain and fears.
Next- To my mother, I miss you more than words will ever express. I know everything you ever did for us was out of love and you gave everything you had. I like to think that you hand-picked each one of my sweet angels to send down to me. While I wish you were still here to guide my hand, I know you’re in heaven watching over us all.
Lastly- Being a mother is the best, most terrifying, job I’ve ever had. I wouldn’t trade it for a second. The spit stains, the no sleep, the giant circles under my eyes are all worth it. You are my pride and joy sweet babies. I’ve never regretted a second and never will.
I love you to the moon and back my sweet babies.
