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:
Yes, this picture was used in A little Q &A with Damien post but I love it so much to not throw it in this one too!
Now do that good looking boy above a favor and vote for his mom's blog! We thank you! :)
