Theodore – Mommy’s first Mother’s Day is coming up soon and in my dreams this is how the day would go:

We wake up to sunshine and the beautiful sound of you crying.

As I get you ready for the day – feed you, change you and put you in a cute I Love Mommy onesie, daddy is downstairs cooking a big pancake breakfast.  When we get downstairs, daddy takes you from me so I can sit down to enjoy a cup of coffee and my pancakes.

In the early afternoon, you and I take a nap together because it’s Mother’s Day and I don’t want to spend a second not with you. Later in the afternoon, Grandma and Grandpa come over to celebrate their youngest daughter’s first Mother’s Day. I give you to Grandma and she hogs you the rest of the afternoon, spoiling you with kisses and hugs.  

At the end of the night, I rock you to sleep while singing your song: Skinnamarink a dink a dink, Skinnamarink a doo. Skinnamarink a dink a dink, Skinnamarink a doo, I love you. I love you in the morning. And in the afternoon. I love you in the evening. And underneath the moon. Skinnamarink a dink a dink, Skinnamarink a doo, I love you!

Once you are completely asleep, I place you in your crib, kiss you on the forehead and whisper “Thank you for the Best Mother’s Day Ever!”.

Tek, you may not be here physically to celebrate with me but I promise to carry your heart in mine forever and ever. You have shown me how powerful a mother’s love truly is and that is a gift I will cherish for a lifetime.
