I thought I knew what it would be like to be a mother.
I thought I knew what it meant to love.
Then, you arrived and taught me that I knew so very little.
You taught me that once you have a child, you are more vulnerable than you ever dreamed possible.
You showed me watching you sleep was the most important thing that I could do on any given afternoon.
Loving you has shown me that I can’t control everything…that sometimes the most amazing moments come from letting go just a little…that sometimes it’s better to let life guide us just a bit.
You have helped me to realize that throwing caution to the wind every once in a while doesn’t have to be scary.
You have taught me that the amount of love that the heart can hold is endless…that just when I am certain that I couldn’t possibly love you more, you make my heart nearly explode.
You have shown me that life passes so quickly.
I don’t want to waste a single moment of this time that I’ve been given to share with you.
You have brought me more joy than I ever dreamed possible.
Happy birthday, my beautiful Daniela!
With more love than you can possibly imagine,
Love Mom @danilanio_
Had her way too young then 4 years later had my son. While most girls that age were out doing what most young adults do I was home raising my 2 kids..... if I had to do it all over again I wouldn't change a thing.
