Happy Birthday Munchkin!!!

 

Today, five years ago,
You came into my world.
I watched you thrive
Despite our rocky circumstances.
Many days it seemed as if
You grew overnight
As if by magic.

How sweet and beautiful you are
My darling little princess.
Some days you morph into
My monster-princess too,
But I guess
We all have those moments.

I did all I could
(and I’m still trying)
To give you what I never had.
You’ve been my world,
You’ve been my reason
To keep pressing forward.

You changed my life in ways
I never imagined were possible.
You gave me one last chance
To be the parent
I always wanted to be.
You gave me hope.

There was a void in my soul
You helped to fill,
But nothing will bring back
Years that were lost —
Years I was not able
To be a mom to your brothers.
All we can do is move forward
Making memories of our own.

Happy birthday my sweet munchkin
You are my joy,
You are a precious gift from heaven.
May you be blessed
With many more birthdays to come
I love you.
Happy 5th Birthday! 🎂

(My) Sleeping Beauty

I held you in my arms today
Waiting for you to wake up.
It’s been a while since I held you like this —
Watching you sleep,
Marveling at how much you’ve grown,
Thankful to be given such a gift.

Being with you like this is rare these days
Since you no longer stay still.
There’s so much you MUST explore
So much you MUST show me
Some much you MUST ask me
The only thing that silences you is sleep.

It’s amazing how it transforms you
From chaos to calm
So I can see my sweet angel,
My little princess, My treasure
Not the beast you pretend to be.

I’m sorry I’m always busy in your presence
I fear that you are learning
to not be still from me.
Even before you were born
I carried you with me —
Constantly moving,
constantly working, constantly busy;
In many respects you are me.

I am an army of one,
Never relied on anyone else
To do for me
What I could do for myself.

I see these traits in you now,
even at three
And though your independence
makes me proud
I fear it will have you
following in my footsteps —
Not needing anyone —
not wanting anyone!

But that’s a lie!
I do need people
To inspire, to encourage
To listen, to care
And what’s more,
I’ve always wanted you!

BUT my introverted nature,
Can only tolerate
external stimulation for so long
Before I must flee to my inner cave
For solace, for silence, for peace.
It is from that place I gain strength
To face the madness again.

It is my desperate need for silence
That makes me misunderstood.
My actions are not meant to hurt
Or cause offense.
My efforts to shut out the world
Are only so I can enjoy it on my terms.

So sleep my little one
As I cherish this moment
For in a few short minutes
You will be awake
Causing chaos as usual,
And in a few short years
You will be grown and gone
And this will only be a memory.
