once upon a time....

Once upon a time there was a little girl who dreamed of being a mom. When she went to school she used to draw picture after picture of her with a little line of kids standing next to her. When everyone else was talking about being a doctor and a teacher she was dreaming of diapering her babies and baking pies. She dreamed of waking up in the morning to chubby smiling faces and babies galore. She dreamed of making scrumptious homemade bread while her little babies napped. She dreamed of having a little farm house with grass and trees as far as she could see. She dreamed of quiet and simple and simply happy days while her children played outdoors.

This very different little girl really never fit in with other children. While they were skipping and singing she was dreaming of her life as a momma. While they were growing into teens and picking out the latest fashions she was secretly dressing her dolls still wondering if her babies would have blue eyes. While the other girls were combining their names with their latest boyfriends she was writing the names of her babies and trying different middle names to hear how they sounded together. While everyone else around her was growing and changing she was daydreaming and wishing for a family.

One day, she got her family. When her first son was born she looked into his eyes and it was love at first sight. She new this is who she had been waiting for her whole life. She wanted more and more kids. When her daughter was born she was smitten by pink and adored her rosy checked angel. Soon enough another son was wrapped up in her arms.

She spent her days dressing babies, changing diapers, playing dress up, picking up toys and cleaning up messes, she was in heaven but there was something missing…

One early early morning that missing piece was born, another daughter, more pink, more dolls and fancy tea parties, more sweet rosy cheeks, more little girl hugs and giggling. The more the merrier.

My Dear babies,

“I’ll love you forever,

I’ll like you for always,

as long as I’m living my babies you’ll be. "
