Almost sixteen years ago, I entered the hospital to give birth to our first child. Shaggy was a week overdue at the time and while I adored being pregnant, I was ready to hold this baby in my arms...well as ready as any new mother ever is. I prayed that I would be a good mother to him and help him grow into a kind, happy and healthy man. While I expect the next couple years to have rocky moments, I am comforted with the fact that he is indeed healthy, kind and happy...when he's not mad at me for taking his phone or I-Pod away.
I am a lucky Mom.
