Wow. Today is Friday, and that means it’s time for another Mom Sexy Fridays post. But today is actually a very special Friday…because it also happens to be my little dude’s 6th birthday.
Holy shit. SIX. Where in the hell did the past few years go? Because I totally remember being in the hospital and giving birth to him like it was yesterday. I was happy. I was relieved. I was overcome with emotion when I saw his little face for the first time. But I was also exhausted after 24-hours of labor. And I kept farting uncontrollably because I was so numb that I couldn’t hold them in. And I was pretty much the unsexiest that I’ve ever been in my life. But then again, I never would’ve eventually found my Mom Sexy again if I hadn’t been a mom in the first place.
Actually, nothing that is good in my life right now ever would’ve happened to me if that little boy hadn’t made his entrance into this world on March 2nd, 2006 at 8:10pm. Because he changed everything.
Without him, I wouldn’t have rediscovered who I truly am. I wouldn’t be a parent, which is the greatest gift that anyone can ever experience. I wouldn’t be confident. I wouldn’t have learned not to sweat the small stuff so much. I wouldn’t have learned what it’s like to love someone so much that you think your head might explode. And I wouldn’t have realized that every single solitary moment of my life has happened for a reason, because it is all part of a bigger plan that we have no control over.
If my little man hadn’t come into my life when he did, then I wouldn’t be typing this post right now, because I wouldn’t be the Mommyologist, so I wouldn’t even know the definition of Mom Sexy let alone have a Friday blog series dedicated to it.
So today, I’m giving credit where it’s due, because I owe all of the amazing things that have happened to me over the past six-years to my adorable, loving, super-intelligent, incredibly sweet, pint-sized comedian that makes my world a better place on a daily basis.
Happy Birthday Little Dude. Your mama loves the shit out of you.
