My little bubba,
I’m not going to lie, but sometimes I forget how truly lucky I am to be your momma and how I get to have this wonderful life with you.
I forget sometimes when you wake me up way too early, demanding all of my attention. I forget as you keep yourself occupied and play on your own. Sometimes, I forget when you are crying out for me and I know this may mean a long, cranky day. But then, all of a sudden, motherhood hits me with a sudden force. I am truly so lucky and so blessed to have another day with you, and I am so lucky to hear your little voice even though you don’t know words yet. I am so lucky to see you reach each milestones and watch you grow into this little boy. I am so lucky to be the one that comforts you and makes you feel safe. I remember finding out I was pregnant with you, and that feeling and moment when the doctor laid you on my chest. You were the most perfect baby I had ever laid eyes on and still are.
My life could have gone in a million different directions, but instead it lead me to you. Here I am, getting to be your momma. You are perfect in every single way, and everything about you is just as it should be. I am overcome by so much love and gratitude.
Feeling lucky is not hard to remember, but sometimes I do forget. So when life gets busy and my mind wanders away, please always know that being your momma makes me the luckiest momma in all the universes.
