So, I am well aware that anything can happen – but for all practical purposes, we have celebrated our last first birthday.
We all knew it was coming and it was a whole lot of fun. The kids fed the ducks, fished a little bit, rode in the golf cart and blew bubbles.They ate too much and played too hard. Presents were opened and toys assembled. People socialized and some caught up a bit with those they hadn’t seen in a while. It was a great day.
Funny how the best of days still leave you with a sense of longing. I guess knowing that you will never get that cake face back, knowing that we have already accomplished a lot of firsts – Christmas, Halloween, Love Day – those firsts are over.
I realize I have a good many firsts to still look forward to. I am thankful to have such a full life with a full house.
Funny the variety of emotions that accompany being a mom…
