how to buy neurontin online
Today I’ve been a mom for 18 years, 3 months and 12 days…6679 days. I’ve learned a lot in those blinks of the eye. For instance…
I’ve learned that milk soaked, honey flavored Kix, smell like a lot like a wet towel left on the floor for 13 days.
I’ve learned that if I had to choose between vomit and poop, I would choose poop. Every. Single. Day.
I’ve learned that it’s possible to clear an overcrowded laundromat with a gun and a few words…
I’ve learned how to grill 24 chicken thighs and turn them into 18 meals over the next 6 days.
I’ve learned that the fire department DOES come when a hotel fire alarm is pulled…
I’ve learned to recognize the body language of an 18 year old trying to “pull a fast one.”
I’ve learned how to stop a 4 year old’s melt-down with crossed eyes and a perfectly timed raspberry.
I’ve learned that vitamins not witnessed “down the hatch,” will be found behind the piano or in the sofa.
I’ve learned that boys are loud, fast and dirty…Really dirty.
I’ve learned that the days that came before I was a mom, were sometimes wasted selfishly.
I’ve learned that boys are disgusting and gross but sweet and perfect in the very same moment.
I’ve learned that spilled milk, sticky floors and laundry piles are precious gifts…
I’ve learned that silent moments in the middle of the night are so very comforting but so are baby snuggles at 3am.
I’ve learned that the pains labored in courtrooms, are as equally excruciating as those felt in a hospital room.
I’ve learned that profiles, memorized at supervised visits, look deep in my eyes when I kiss him goodnight.
I’ve learned so much since my days as a mom began…days that started with DNA…I’m so very thankful that my knowledge didn’t stop there.
I’ve learned that adoption makes me no less a mother and that DNA is not needed to give them life!
I’ve leaned that there will always be something to learn.
I’ve learned that there will always be “What ifs…” “What if we were still a family of 4…What if we would have said “No”…What if someone doesn’t get the attention they need…What if we outgrow our van…What if…
I’ve learned that each day can be a teacher. Every 6679 snaps of a finger…a faithful professor into tomorrow.
I will never know everything, but each day will add another lesson learned…Oh how thankful I am for those 6679 lessons learned.
