Hi friends how is everyone today?
Little Miss is sleeping and I wanted to take some time today to talk about my first Mother’s Day. It was not your typical Mother’s Day seeing how I spent it in the hospital but I will be honest I would not have had it any other way. I honestly did not think that Little Miss would be here for this Mother’s Day and when she was born just 3 days before I was shocked!
Mother’s Day I found myself along with Mr. Big Truck shuttling back and forth between my room and the NICU so that I could nurse. I didn’t mind because I got to spend the day with the two most important people in my life. My husband and my daughter. My mom came to visit us during the day and my phone was blowing up with Happy Mother’s Day text messages all day. I felt beyond loved.
I was finally allowed to have real food so Mr. Big Truck went to get us lunch from Panera Bread. I came to find out that that my favorite salad ever was available so I asked for that with some soup. Mr. Big Truck was also a sly little fella and picked up two Mother’s Day cards for me, one from him and one from Little Miss and wrote the most sweetest messages inside them both.
“Happy 1st Mother’s Day Suga. I am so proud and blessed to have you not only as my wife but my best friend and our daughters mommy. You are going to be an outstanding mom to our children. Thank you for all you do for us. I love you.”
Cue the tears round one. Let’s also not forget that I was hormonal from just giving birth.
Then I opened the card from Little Miss…
“Happy Mother’s Day Mommy. I’m still way to small and unable to write so daddy wrote this for me. Thank you for making me a perfect, beautiful and precious little girl. You did a fantastic job. Daddy told me he is so darn proud of you. I love you and can’t wait till we go home as a family. Love your daughter, Little Miss.”
And I lost it.
Between the touching words that were written and the surge in my hormones I was a mess. We ate our Panera and shuttled back and forth to the NICU to see the baby and enjoyed our time as a new family of 3. I wouldn’t have had it any other way.
