... Because you taught me

Saturday, August 23, 2014

Caroline,

I just wanted to drop you a quick note, and since this blog will someday be a collection of my writings for you, I want you to know exactly what I think, even if it comes in the form of a quickly scribbled letter.

We just left Hudson's baby shower, and it was a blast. I just dropped you off to be with the other side of your family for the rest of the weekend and I already miss you. 

As I drive back home alone listening to songs we jam out to, I get caught up in thoughts about how different everything is having Hudson from having you. 

The difference is that you taught me everything!  My shower gifts that I registered for are not the same that they were with you because this time around I know that hugs and arms that hold you are more important than another swing or baby contraption, and that I don't need a wipe warmer because at 2 am not even warm wipes make a little one happy. I learned that songs I sing in a funny voice make you giggle harder than any battery operated toy. It's so crazy to see how much you have changed me and grown me as a parent. You have taught me that the time we spend together will shape you more than any of the baby "gear" that we think we need. 

I just want to say "thank you". Thank you for breaking me in as a parent; for working out the kinks with me, for teaching me, for being patient with the things I didn't know how to do. Thank you for making me a mom!! Our whole world is about to change adding another little,demanding monkey, but I want you to know that I REMEMBER who taught me all I know. I can't wait to do this with you, my little assistant, by my side.

Love, 
Mom
