I can't believe in just two short months I will have a 10 year old....where did the time go!? He is now in fourth grade (home schooled) and loving history (one of my favorite subjects in school)! Learning anything about the Civil War has this kid on cloud 9! He enjoys math which is awesome because it was my least favorite subject in school. Maybe one day he will be my accountant :)).
To be his mom is truly and honor. When I first learned I was pregnant, Nick and I were not married...in-fact we conceived him the might we got engaged. We decided to put our wedding off a year so I would not be stressed out by planning our wedding. So instead we birthed Events by Melissa...LOL.
I remember the day he was born like it yesterday...truly! My water broke at about 2 in the morning. So we rushed to the hospital because I was told I would take after my mother. And she was only in labor with me for about 30 minutes. So you could see why I was get there FAST! Well as it would turn out I would be NOTHING like my mother....the compete opposite. I would be in labor for 22 HOURS!!! Not minutes friends....HOURS.
And then the doctor came in to give us news we had never even thought of so of course there was no plan for it. I would have a c-section. WHAT! What is that? Is that were I am cut open??? I don't know if I like this idea. I was told I was still at 7cm after hours so I no longer had a choice. I later learned that was not true...no longer my doc dude!
Well the spinal block didn't work...so that's right folks I felt ever CUT! I thought I was going to die.
The pain of course faded and in my arms I held this perfect little baby boy with some amazing dark hair.
I can't wait to start planning your BIG double "digit" party!
XO ~ Mom!
