18 years ago I held a squirming babe in my arms for the very first time. I didn’t know how to hold her properly, change her, I didn’t know what her different cries meant. Today I still hardly know what I am doing, undaunted, she continues to turn into a beautiful young woman. Blessed to be called Mum.
She had a combined 18th birthday party with 2 of her friends (villain theme). I haven’t laughed so much in ages. My three children spent 2 weeks hand making their costumes. 90% of each of their costumes all came from stash. So proud of their creativity and hard work.
On her actual birthday we had a long slow breakfast and present opening and talked for a long time about the party from the previous night. Then we went strawberry picking and climbed a mountain in the late afternoon.
Making memories that last a life time! Love you my eldest daughter, you are a treasure, find your wings and fly towards your dreams. We will support you all the way to the moon and back, LOL. You are stronger than you think. Mum x
