It’s my Momaversary

It has been 11 years since I’ve been a mom. I learned about this term a few years ago when a friend told me about it (Thanks pal!). She said that yes, while celebrating kiddo’s birthday is important – it is also important to celebrate the first day of motherhood.
I remember it so well. My water broke at 2:30pm on March 13th, got to the hospital at 3 and had kiddo at 4:36am on March 14th, 2001. And this after sitting at home for a week waiting for the butterball to show up. And he sure did! 8lbs, 7 oz of chunky monkey. The lead ob/gyn put him on my upper chesst and I was blown away at how heavy he was then.
Today, he is a healthy, nearly eye-to-eye with me, 5th grader who is smart, sweet and kind. – woke him early to sing Happy Birthday so he could blow out the candles on his ice cream sandwich. (Kiddo’s with his father from today til Friday evening so I had to party somehow.) After he got ready for school, I gave him his gifts – a telescope (science supergeek) and a new video game for his Wii console. My kid is awesome. Don’t get me wrong, it hasn’t been easy being his mom, but he’s brought me so much joy. Kiddo helped me discover who I am and pushed me to be stronger than I ever thought I could. He has motivated me to follow my dreams so that he would have a role model. He has truly enriched my life and I couldn’t have asked for a better assignment (and gift) than to be his mother. So, happy birthday, kiddo (my love & joy) and happy momaversary to me!

  1. Happy belated birthday to kiddo & Happy (belated) Momaversary to you! (I love the term!) That in 11 years, he became a smart, sweet, and kind kid who would appreciate a telescope (cool science!) means you did many things right, and the world will be a better place because of it :-}

    • Thanks so much Nikki for visiting and for the kind words. Everyday I’m amazed at how wonderful he is and how fast he’s growing up. I know that I’ll blink and he’ll be in college. lol I do try to teach him to make the right choices as much as possible. I just hope that he’ll remember everything I’ve taught him when it counts. Thanks again for the visit and hope to see you again soon. 🙂
