Last year, I subscribed to Baby Center’s updates and allowed their app to send weekly notices of my child’s progress.
While I find the app pretty thorough, I normally ignore it – not that it doesn’t have valuable information… I just don’t always have the time to read it, but I do like having it.
But I digress — the message below popped up on my phone on my daughter’s birthday…
If only this last year could actually be summed up in 3 lines.
But I can try…
“Congratulations! You’ve just made it through one of the most exhausting years of your life – only 17 more to go!”
“Congratulations! Your Life as you know it is Over!”
“Congratulations! You’ll never go to the bathroom alone again!”
“Congratulations! Privacy is a thing of the past!”
… You get the picture!
But in all seriousness – nothing beats this first year- watching someone literally grow before your eyes is such an amazing gift that I am more than honored to experience!
I wouldn’t trade it for anything!
