Gabriel Eric came into my world and made me a mommy for the first time! He created my role for me; my current employment-to be the best mommy that I can be. Yes, there are days that I should be fired, but my boys keep me around. :-)
Ah, I am having such a bittersweet day. I have loved every minute of celebrating my now 7-year old son, but he starts school again tomorrow, and he will be a 1st grader!! Where does the time go? I feel that my job as his full-time mommy has just gotten pushed to part-time status and there is nothing that I can do to stop it. He will officially be at school for more hours during the day than he will be at home with me, and I don't think it is bothering him one bit. I am glad that it is not. If it were bothering him, I would be an even more sniffling, blubbering fool. I've been good, and have only broken down twice in the last 24 hours, but I can tear up just thinking about how much I am going to miss that boy of mine! 7 years flew by too fast. I blinked, and he is walking the hallways by himself, not holding my hand anymore, and just being so independent.
I love you Gabriel Eric, and I have such high hopes and dreams for you, but the most important things that I want for you is to be happy and to know how much you have changed my life for the better. There are no words to describe the love I feel for you! You will always be the one who made me a mommy!
