The Thrill of Parenthood
I never thought the day would come that I’d be
someone’s mother. Two years and five months later it
still doesn’t seem real at times. On April 16, 2012, I
was blessed with a beautiful baby girl, and I named her Kyler.
The feeling of seeing her face, kissing her lips, and saying
her name for the first time was so unexplainable, and still is
to this day. I never knew that it was possible to love someone
more than I loved myself. But it’s very possible and I
wouldn't’t trade it for a thing in this world.
In the earlier years of her life I was super over protective
of her. Id rarely let her out of my sight, unless she was with
my mom. I was told I had the new baby blues and I’d get
over them very soon. As Kyler started to grow, I felt like it
was happening all too soon. I remember the very first time she
started day care, I cried because I didn’t want to leave
her. I must have called the sitter a thousand times to check
on her in about a 10 hour time frame. As time went on it go
easier to leave her while I went to work.
Before I knew it she was turning a year old, and was on big
girl status. By this time, she’d gotten some teeth, and
she’d stop drinking out of a baby bottle. It was like
she was becoming her own little independent person overnight.
Being a full-time single parent is no easy job. There are a
lot of late nights and early mornings that come along with it.
Some days I want to throw the towel in and walk away, but then
I'm reminded every time I see her little face,
that's not an option.
