From the moment I knew you were in there, growing against the odds I loved you.
I promised you that I would never lose my temper with you and that I would treasure every second and make things perfect.
I want to say I'm sorry Elijah as I simply haven't kept that promise. My love runs deeper than I ever thought it could for you but I am human, your guardian, your protector and your friend and somedays you simply piss me off beyond belief.
Today is one of those days, you're tired and grumpy and pulling my hair refusing to sleep as I write this.
Im told that as a Mother I should treasure every second, see you for the perfect bundle that you are; well master Bhaskara you're not perfect, you're human just like mummy and daddy.
You'll anger us, we'll anger you. We'll want time away from you and you'll want time away from us.
I guess I'm trying to say Im sorry I promised things would be perfect because it isn't and never will be but I can promise you one thing; Mummy and Daddy adore you and your peachy butt, we'll protect you at all costs but also call you an asshole under our breath when things get too much- you're welcome to do the same when you grow up and we piss you off too.
Here's to every perfectly imperfect family trying and feeling lost/lonely.
You're doing a great job and if today your child is being a knob then I feel you.
WE GOT THIS. 💜
