10 years ago...

10 years ago tonight I was in awe... I was in full labor with my first child. I was young, nieve and didn't know what to expect. As I progressed through the night I just kept thinking I have no idea what is around the corner. From the pain, the strength of those around me, my nerves and then my final joy of ... It's a boy... I became a Mom.

My baby turns 10 today (4.23). I so vividly remember turning 10... double digits and preteen! I am so excited for his new adventures... for our new adventures. He is not a baby anymore (nor has he been for quite some time), but there is just something about 10. I am so proud of who he has become and so excited for who he will become.

Here's to you Pepe... your mama loves you tremendously! I hope you have not only a wonderful day, but a year full of adventure and growth. There will always be struggles, but remember who you are and what you believe in. You are an amazing child. Your talents continue to inspire me...

Mom (tears streaming down my face... I love this boy)

Only now that I am a mom can I appreciate that ten is still "baby", because once you give birth to that person, they are your forever baby. Forever. It's that simple.
So enjoy celebrating your baby today. Congratulations on an entire decade of parenting!!!
