The eve before I became a mum, before Mr. Hotpants became the incredibly loving daddy he is, before we stared into those huge brown eyes that I still stare into today. Four years ago today, at 7:57am, weighing in at 7lbs 5oz, our world changed fantastically forever.
I am no longer the person, the woman, the wife, the daughter, or the sister I was back then. You, my sweet, empathetic, loving 4 year old wonder have taught me a lifetime of wisdom in your 4 short years.
I didn't know true, raw love until I met you
I didn't know how much my parents loved me until I loved you
I didn't know that there was a 9ft protective mama bear inside this body
I didn't know what it felt like to want nothing but the absolute best for someone
I didn't know that my life was wonderful and full
I didn't know that you would be the one person to teach me the true meaning of life . . .
I didn't know how much I would like you, love you, miss you and need you.
Happy Birthday to the most precious, most beautiful, most amazing little girl in my world. You make our world a happy happy place.
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away . . .
