Thank you for reassuring me that this feeling is something every Mother has. Yes, we know what it is like... the day our baby is put in our arms we know we are hopelessly going to fall in love deep, deeper and deeply. It is an amazing thing a mother's love for her child. Dang, I think it surpasses any love I have ever felt. Sorry French Husband, but I think you know what I mean.
Scary beautiful that love stuff is really.
Even when the baby doesn't sleep through the night until he is five years old.
Annie came over yesterday. While talking to her I broke into sobs, embarrassingly so... the more I tried to stop the more she looked at me like I was crazy. The crazier she looked at me I started to laugh that snotty kind of choky laugh.
"Corey?! Nobody is dieing. Nobody is hurt. Would you rather have Sacha and Chelsea living with you until they are in their forties, where you can iron their clothes, cook their dinner, buy their favorite yogurt, and not live your life like my friend across the street?"
Then she stood up and said, "You will be fine. Welcome to the part of motherhood that you thought about since the day they were born. Now tell me... Are you going to go to Willows too? Because if you do I will be very sad."
The cycle of life, the kumbaya, the whole enchilada is that love takes you on a journey that will have you laughing, crying and wondering how you ever got here in the first place.
Lucky is what I feel today. Lucky for a blog that allows me to know you, and for your generous response. Lucky that I had a Mother and Father who loved me. Lucky to have a husband who tries to keep me from being a brat, and luckier for having children who are so easy that they have spoiled me into knowing that normal is the new hot!
An excerpt from the French film: Tanguy, that came out several years ago. Tanguy is nearly thirty and who still lives with his parents. His parents want him to move out. He doesn't want to.... he is thirty going on sweet happy boy forever. The parents hatch a plan.
The excerpt is in French, but the storyline is easy to follow, and their home is beautiful... gee, I wouldn't leave for that reason alone.
When did you move out from home?
