To My Firstborn: I Didn’t Know

Dear Firstborn Baby Boy:

(Yes I can still call you that.)

There are some things about motherhood that I knew in my heart from the moment I knew you were growing inside me.

I knew I wanted you with all my heart. I knew I loved you more than I ever thought possible. I knew you were the best thing I’d ever had a hand in creating.

There were other things I knew the moment they laid you in my arms.

I knew you were the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen. I knew your sweetness would know no bounds. I knew it was a privilege to be your mom.

And as you grew, I knew.
