11 Years Ago

I was so young. Clueless on how to raise a child. I just lost my mother in September to cancer and had NO clue what I was doing.

I was 16 hours away from my dad and I was about to have a baby. I was only 22 years old! TOO young if you ask me.

It was the worst of all 3 of my pregnancies. Morning sickness for 7 months straight. I was so ready for it to be over.

Homesick, depressed and in a bad relationship were not the best circumstances to bring a baby into this world.

But at 9:57 pm on May 7th, 1999, my oldest was born. I finally had someone who I could love and could love me back unconditionally.

I brought her home from the hospital on Mother’s Day, which for me was pretty darn special.

She has grown up to be smarter than I could ever pretend to be, sweeter than I have or will ever be and more loving than any child I have ever known.

Yes, she gets on my nerves so bad sometimes I want to string her up by her toenails, but I still love her.

Happy Birthday Caitlin. I love you thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiissss much!

Happy Birthday Caitlin! Feel free to stay 11 for a good, long time. Growing up is overrated.
