Everything. I’m ready to hold him, to get to know him, to hug him when he’s sad, to cheer him on, to kiss his boo boos, to teach him things, and to love the crap out of him! Since I’ve started having contractions, I’ve started to get a little nervous, but I know that everything will be alright. I’m ready to finally meet my little man. I love you, buddy :)
Because Mommy is forever.
It’s such a powerful name. Mommy means “I trust you.” Mommy means “you will protect me.” Mommy is for shouting when you need someone dependable and for laughing with when you are excited; Mommy is for crying on and cuddling with when you are sad or giggling and hiding behind when you are embarrassed. Mommy is the fixer of boo-boos and the mender of broken hearts. Mommy is a comfort place, a safe place. Mommy means you are mine and I am yours and we are family.
