On This Day...
On this day, 26 years ago, my parents held their first baby.
On THIS day, TODAY, I will start my day at 6:30 with a wide awake little boy who somehow makes me smile even when I'm exhausted.
On this day, I will do at LEAST 2 loads of laundry, and pick up the same toys 12 different times.
On this day, I'll wipe noses, fill juice cups, and change roughly 15 diapers.
On this day, I'll yell at the dogs, get spit up on, and watch Olivia on Nick Jr. for my "down" time.
On this day, my "conversations" will be "NO!", "BE CAREFUL!", "STOP!", "ARE YOU OK?" and "BECAUSE I SAID SO."
On this day, I'll be the maid, the cook, the waitress, the busboy, the dishwasher, and the taxi driver.
On this day, I'll pretend to be a big bad wolf, Cinderella's evil stepmother, and the mama in dollhouse land.
On this day, my hair will return to it's normal messy bun, my outfit will be yoga pants and an old t-shirt, and my make up will consist of mascara alone.
On this day, I'll kiss away tears, hold itty bitty hands, and tickle tiny bellies til laughter fills my ears.
On this day, I'll try to fit a shower in somewhere.
On this day, my lunch will probably be goldfish and juice.
On this day, I'll read 4 stories, sing 6 silly songs, and rock babies on my lap til they drift off to dreamland.
On this night, I'll crawl in my bed, and thank my God for the wonderful day I've had, and the little blessings that made it so wonderfully perfect.
So thankful for my life this year on my birthday! I wouldn't have it any other way.
