GBE Wk 16: Child to Parent
I woke up early to watch cartoons on Saturday mornings. I would argue that I could pour my own bowl of cereal without spilling. I played pretend with my Barbie dolls and would tuck my stuffed animals in before I fell asleep.
My friends were more important to me than anything else. My hair color changed with my mood. Every song that came out that year was 'my song'. I both loved and hated high school. I was both insecure and invincible.
He could do no wrong. Every goodbye was painful. Every letter was kept in a pink shoebox under my bed. I circled our initials in red hearts in my journal. Every conversation was new and exciting.
That first year was a learning experience beyond any other. Everything changed. That was the year I grew up the most, learned the most, fought the most. Without that year there wouldn't have been a second, or third...
Am I scared?
But I'm also excited.
And I can't wait to meet that beautiful little boy.
