You’re how old Bry? There’s no way you’re 24! No way! You were my baby just a couple of years ago. Oh wait…you still are!
You might be “grown” but you’ll always be my baby. You were my unplanned gateway to adulthood. You forced me to grow up. Was I ready? Heck no! But the minute I saw your beautiful face 24 years ago today at 2:14 pm, I knew I could do this!
I’ve failed along the way. All parents do. But through thick and through thin, we’ve stuck together. You’re my baby girl and I’ll always be your “mommy”. We were meant to be!
There were times I wondered if we’d make it. Times I worried if you’d eat. But we did it. Together.
Since you came into this world, there have been 3 more. Two sisters and one brother. Plus a “Daddy” that loves you more than life itself. Who would have known back then that we’d make it this far? Not me for sure! But we have. Together we struggled, and fought, and stuck together with love through it all. And here we are.
Life isn’t always perfect. We know that. But if we stick together, it’s pretty darned good.
I’ll always be by your side. I’ll always bail you out. I’ll always be your biggest fan. And I’ll always love you! Nothing has changed from the moment I saw your beautiful face for the first time 24 years ago, except for my love for you which has grown with every day that passes. You might not be my baby anymore, but you’ll always be my “baby”.
