"The paradox of parenting is that it moves in both fast speed and slow motion"
My mama will tell you that she remembers the day i was born like it was yesterday. She can spit my weight and length - i wouldn't be surprised if she knew the time of birth too.
Every year I love to sit and listen to my mama tell me stories about my birth. I feel like with every year i find out something new. I know that my mama drove herself to the hospital and labored with me naturally. Once I was born my birth made the newspaper becuse I was the only baby born in the hospital on a cold Monday in February (29th). I was born on a leap year which meant i wouldn't get another calendar birth date for another 4 years.
Once i made earthside i tons of family waiting to greet me..my dad being the proudest. So proud that we name Symphony.
fast forward a few days and I will approaching 30 years young, Im floored at how fast that went. I vividly remember many elementary, middle and high school experiences like it was yesterday and I've been out of high school 12 years....omg!!!
My mama will officially have a 30 year old child. Im not old.. she is. lol
As I reflect I continue to think about my journey of raising two little humans. I can't help but think how fast will the next 30 years go?!!
I'm blessed. I can say my parents never missed beat when it came to being present in my life. For that, Thank you!
