Till there was you…
I didn’t know I could be so happy and so afraid AT THE SAME TIME.
I didn’t realize my heart could grow in size.
I didn’t believe in miracles.
I doubted I could do the hard things.
It seemed like something was missing from my life.
Life was a lot quieter…and kinda boring.
I only worried about the dog.
I had lots more cargo space on payday…and money!
I only dreamed of having a blonde-haired blue-eyed beauty to call my own.
No one ever threw up or pooped on me.
I didn’t really comprehend how big the laundry pile could get.
I never woke up to someone staring creepily at me.
I didn’t realize I had super silent ninja skills…or that my breasts had superpowers.
I slept in.
I was a lot more spontaneous…and careless.
And till there was you I couldn’t understand that having a child didn’t mean life as I knew it would end, but that becoming a parent was the beginning of a new and different kind of journey.
Even though I’m still not completely confident I can tackle the unknown mountains ahead, I do know one thing– having you here with me means we’ve made it this far!
And that’s all I need to know.
