I had the opportunity to interact with other adults and enjoy some great conversation! While I was standing on the porch looking down at all of the children playing I had a sudden realization. . . My Baby is Not Going to Be a Baby Forever!
Of course this is something that I have always known. In fact it is something that I pray for. Like every mother I hope and pray that my daughter will lead a full and healthy life. That still does not change the feeling, in that moment. In that moment looking down at all the older children made me realize that one day Brea will not be small enough to toss in the air. She will not be full of excitement just because mommy walked in the door. She will want her privacy and be embarrassed because mommy tried to give her a kiss. Oh and lets not forget their will be one day that mommy will suddenly turn into hey mom!
Isn't it amazing how something so normal can cause such a mixture of emotions. Of course I also look forward to being a part of Brea's life and seeing the person that she becomes. I look forward to guiding her and helping and encouraging her to make the right decisions. I look forward to meeting her children (of course that should be a LONG, LONG time from now!)
With all of that said . . . I WILL STILL MISS MY BABY!
Have you ever had that sudden realization?
