A decade. That is how long I have been a parent. Can you believe it?? Me neither. I cannot believe what changes have happened in my life in the past 10 years. When I was pregnant with Erin, I was planning to breastfeed her for 6-10 weeks (yes, that was weeks), go back to work and never look back. You know, modern woman and all that. HA!! What things we learn and journeys we take when we open our hearts to the amazing love of a child and the world of being a Mom! And now look at us--look at my family and my path and look at the wonderful things my journey has taught me. I can never describe what it is like to be the mom to this kid--this amazing, gifted, moody, sarcastic, joyful, true-to-herself, Lego-obsessed, boy-clothes-wearing, tree-climbing, happy, loving, kind, fabulous kid. Happy Birthday, Erin, I can't wait to see what the next 10 years will bring!!
