"One of those Moms"

This past Friday was a wake up call to my emotional motherhood, I witnessed my baby, my little baby girl, becoming a strong independent child. As I stood barefoot, watering the grass I watched you push your little bus back and forth across the yard. You would teeter and fall at times, but get right back up, only to take breaks to babble up a storm.

As I watched you, tears started rolling down my face, and I realized, I am "one of those Moms".
One of those Moms that cries on the first day of school, at prom, and for the first broken heart. I will be the embarrassing Mom with tissues in my purse at dance recitals and school plays. I will stand up and whoop for you with my arms in the air at sporting events and pull out the air horn at graduation. Why? Because I am PROUD. I will always be proud of your accomplishments, wether it's teetering across the lawn or nailing the 4th grade spelling bee.

I would have NEVER expected to be an emotional Mother, a crier, but I am. Im not even sorry about it.

"I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always,
As long as I'm living,
My baby you'll be."
