As she lay beside me

As she lay beside me

I looked at her sucking her fingers

With eyes wide open

She was a new born baby!

As she lay beside me

After being nothing short of feisty 

 I saw her sleep calmly

She was a toddler with no shortage of opinions!

As she lay beside me

Needing some good ol’ mommy love

I saw my new best friend

She had grown to be a little lady!

*I look forward to many more milestones. We can bond over so much girly stuff.  😀 Love you baby girl!

With or without you?

In a few of months

We’ll have to part ways

You’ve given me comfort 

On many brutal days

I am not very sure 

Of our next rendezvous 

Not that I don’t love you

But it shouldn’t be too soon

Athough we were a fit

I often needed space

Taking a break from you

Until we’d go some place

I will say this though

You weren’t one of a kind

But I picked you out of many

So am I out of my mind

When I say I can’t wait

To change up the rote

And finally shed you off

My dear winter coat!

😀

The Fall season 

Cooler temperatures

Pumpkins and other gourds

Show the arrival of the Fall season 

   
    
 The yellow and red 

and orange leaves

Are the highlight of the Fall season

   

    
   
The bare trees from fallen leaves

The costumes and times of ‘Trick or Treat!’ 

Are all a signature of the Fall season!

I realize…

I realize that our bouts of laughter

Will stay with me forever after

I realize that I want the best for you
But don’t worry…I will consult with you 😀

I realize that you have opinions now
Some I am sure will make me say…”wow!”

I realize that there’s no bigger joy

Than seeing a smile on my little girl and boy

I realize that I have to be your guiding light 

To show what’s wrong and what is right

I realize that I want to enjoy my time with you 

My precious little ones…I will always love you!

Once upon a time…

Once upon a time

I was a baby

Milk and a clean diaper was all I needed

Once upon a time

I was a a toddler

Food, random objects and a clean diaper was all I needed

Once upon a time

I was a child

Food and toys was all I needed

Once upon a time

I was a high schooler

Food, friends and good grades was all I needed

Once upon a time

I became a young adult

Food and graduating from college was all I needed

Once upon a time

I found my first job

Food and proving myself was all I needed

Once upon a time

I got married

Food, a home and proving myself was all I needed

Once upon a time

I had children

Taking care of them and proving myself was all I needed

Now I have t(w)eens

Life is not about approval from others

Taking care of the family is still a high priority

Taking care of “me” is a concept that has now dawned upon me

Food is still something I need! 😀

What goes down, must come up!

When you’re feeling sad

Use that strength in you

To fight those pesky blues

When you’re feeling lonely

Find YOUR activity 

Enjoy it…be carefree!

When you’re feeling MAD

Realize you need a break 

To consider that we ALL make mistakes 

When you’re disappointed 

Maybe you expected too much?

Try re-evaluate and then adjust

As life keeps moving along

You’ll perceive many ebbs and flows

But the mind alone can get you through those self-created “lows”!

A.K.
