My birthdays have not been very exciting for the last 4 or so years now, but today...my 34th birthday, takes the cake in the craptastic catagory.
Trying to make a super long story short...I swear someone could write a book about my upbringing, that would then probably be turned into some Lifetime movie.
I was not in a picture taking mood today, so it is a great time to post a few that I took a couple weeks ago and forgot to add.
I am just so glad my parenting apple fell far from her tree. I look at these guys and can not even begin to imagine leaving them and never seeing them again...of my own free will. Who does that?
This is bringing up feelings I thought I had long ago gotten over. All the birthdays and Holidays with no word from her, the birth of my children with no word from her...heck I doubt she even knew I had children. Just so stupid.
Being a Momma is shaping me into a person who looks for the silver lining. I guess I can say in this case it is, I know exactly what type of parent I do NOT want to be. These 4 people are my heart, I couldn't survive without them....and wouldn't want to. This cycle will not be repeating, I can tell you that.
