Yesterday my sweet kiddo turned fourteen. Man… fourteen years sure passes fast. Motherhood is just so much clearer in reverse… the days are long and well meaning strangers in the store tell you “don’t blink” and you internally roll your eyes because when you are up all night, busy all day, un-showered for most of the week and when you finally get a moment to yourself you spend it questioning if you are a good enough mother… well… it’s hard to believe that one day you will look back and wish you could just do it one more time, in slow mo.
But… the cliches are so true. Also: You are good enough. And, Please, please don’t blink.
