This is a very special post because today is a very special day: my daughter’s birthday! I am in simple disbelief that it has been TWO YEARS!!! I can remember being a child and thinking, “I’ll never grow up.” Then, I got to college and thought, “Seriously, when do I get to be an adult?” And then, I got my first job and all hell broke loose-I married, I divorced, I reconnected, I moved half way across the country, I got the job of my dreams, and I got married. But then, EVERYTHING changed on March 23, 2010: my own little Ginger was born.
I still do not have the words to describe how it felt and how it still feels. Awe, humbled, proud, love, amazement: they don’t do my heart and my emotions justice. This is how I know that I am head-over-heals, completely and irrevocably in love with my daughter. When words aren’t enough, it’s a pretty good indicator that you’re in trouble 😉
So, while I’m tearing up at my baby not being a baby anymore, I’m going to take advantage of the fact that whatever I put out on the web will NEVER be gone and say this (so when she’s 16 and I want to send her away, she knows that I really do love her 🙂
