This week’s sentence is ”One Halloween I…celebrated as a mom.“
When you are trying to have a child and it doesn’t work, you think about every special moment and holiday you will never experience as a mom. But that first Halloween with my little monkey was beautiful. Of course everything is a joyous moment when you are a mom…but even more so that I finally got to experience it. Sure he was almost 5 months old, but it was beautiful.
He was adorable in his monkey costume…so happy just to see mommy laugh and act silly. Did he understand what was going on? NOPE. Did he get to go trick or treating? NOPE Did he eat any candy? NOPE. Did I celebrate like mad, enjoying every moment? YOU BET YOUR @SS I DID!
Speaking of BIRTHDAYS……
At 38 years old I’ve
survived my teen years and some tremendously stupid choices and actions
graduated high school and earned a Masters Degree
got married and despite our ups and downs, we’ve been together 18 years and married 12 years.
have a son, despite all those years of heartache and fear, I am a MOM
became a teacher, then due to budget cuts lost my job and condo
found another teaching job and slowly rebuilding and re-imagining our dreams
hated myself, tried to changed who I was, then realized I was too special and finally love who I am
lost friends I wish were still around, lost friends who weren’t friends at all, and made friends who will always be a part of my heart
started blogging, then stopped, then started blogging again
My birthday gift to myself???? Superhero Family Car Decals….YES, I’M A GEEK and I love it…At least they aren’t Twilight decals.
What Halloween memory do you have?
