To the boy who made me a mum,
You turned my life upside down.
You showed me that there were far more important things in life than what I was currently prioritizing.
You brought out strengths in me that I never knew I had and discover weaknesses I never knew existed.
You made me realize I was focusing on all the wrong things in life and that it was the small things that really mean the most.
You’ve made me cry, you’ve made my laugh and you’ve made me yell.
You have the most amazing personality and you have such a kind heart.
You inspired me to start this blog and help so many people.
You saved me.
The moment you were put in my arms, I was overwhelmed with emotions. So much love, and so much fear. I was so scared because this whole motherhood thing this was new to me. I was so scared of not being a good Mum to you. I got post natal depression and I cried a lot. I would sit there and look at you, and cry. I was so scared that I was failing you because I wasn’t coping. The first few months were really difficult for me, coming to terms with such a big adjustment, my hormones were all over the place and I was discovering a new side of myself.
You are such a good big brother (most of the time) and these days when I look at you I am so proud of how far we have both come.
We are gonna move mountains together kiddo
