Someday as mommas we will all be old & gray & when we look back at this time there are a few things I KNOW for sure....

You will never regret the days you never got dressed because you were too busy playing peek a boo or having tickle fights.

You won't be sad that you held them too mush or gave too many kisses.

You won't me disappointed that your house wasn't clean enough or that your Christmas tree was up until March one year....

You will never be bummed to think that you missed out on sex because your baby was nursing no-stop in a growth spurt & needed you.

You won't be upset if pregnancy or nursing made you feel like your boobs were deflated balloons - because by that time they would have looked like that anyway.

You will miss being asked to hold them.

You will miss being woken for a special cuddle at 3am.

You will miss being needed to kiss those boo boos.

You will miss times when they shared special secrets with you.

You will miss that crazy morning hair & puffy eyes.

And you will know that when they needed you - you were there...when they asked for your love & attention, you gave it & that you gave them the best foundation you could to know that they are loved, they are enough & that you will always be there for them. For that - I am sure you will never be lonely - no matter how much we all will miss these days.

I am glad you liked it - I was thinking about those things for myself....the things I want to remember & the things I don't want to be part of my legacy I leave my child. When he is grown, my greatest hope is not that he experience no pain in this lifetime, ( I know that is a vital & necessary part of life) but only that when he looks back over his childhood & our relationship - that I am not the SOURCE of his pain.
