A few weeks ago, I was sitting with my family and trying to coordinate calendars and trying to figure out what days we could schedule to celebrate the separate occasions. her birthday and our anniversary. My daughter Alisha , who has a birthday 1 day before my wedding anniversary ..... She said to me: Mommy, I am okay to share my birthday dinner with your anniversary dinner. We could celebrate it on the same night. I looked at my daughter, who is
Usually all about having her own day, sometimes even a whole birthday weekend, where just all the attention on just her and said: Are you sure? And she said: of course! I was like: of course? When did my baby grow up? How did I miss this? I guess that is what happens when they grow up, graduate college get a real job, get married and have a life away from Mommy and Daddy. It goes fast people.. it truly does… so in the midst of your sleep deprivation and any parenting challenges.. try and remember, there will come a day when they are fully independent, they don't need for you to wipe their tushies anymore, or make their meals for them or drive them places and give them money. All of a sudden you turn around and just don’t need you to care for them day to day. So, enjoy all the moments and special times with your precious babies.
