Happy Birthday Damien!

Eleven years ago today I became a mother for the first time. I didn't know what that meant at the time, but I understand that fully now. Damien and I have been given a unique opportunity to try something that most people don't get to experience. People have this notation that being a young mother is extremely shameful, and even feel bad for young mother. I don't understand this concept. There is no right age for motherhood. This is societies warped view of reality. I don't know what my life would have been like if I didn't have Damien at fifteen. I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason and I am sure that this is the case with Damien and I. We have been through a lot of different experiences together as mother and son, and together these things shaped us to the people we are today. And today Damien turns eleven years old. No longer a little boy by size, but still in his heart. His unconditional loves teaches me to be more patient everyday and to take a step back and be thankful for what is around me. There are no words to describe how lucky I am to be this wonderful boys mother!

I love you Damien. Happy Birthday baby!
Pictures below are in no particular order:

  1. the 5th picture down looks soooooo much like Mar!! Happy Birthday Big D!!

    1. When I was going through the old pictures of D I was surprised to see how much Mar looks like him when he was her age. So cute! Thanks girl! xoxo

  2. I have felt myself that shame you're talking about a couple of times! It's ridiculous if you think that I have done it so much better than most women I know.

    I agree, Damien looks so much like Amar'e at the 5th picture!

    Happy birthday to your son!

    1. Completely ridiculous! It should be the quality of the parenting that matters, not the age of the mother. You are a remarkable young mother in my opinion. I am completely inspired by your quality of mothering and care for your son! Keep doing what you are doing girl! :) xoxo

      He says "Thank you"!

  3. Damien!! Happy Birthday!!!! We love you and miss you very much...especially grammy!!! Hope to see you soon!!
