Forty years ago today, I brought two baby boys into the world that would become every mother’s dream of the ideal child.
Like most new mothers, I had no idea of the commitment required to bring a newborn home and raise it to be a responsible adult. In my case, there were two of them! In those first months, I wondered if I would ever be able to sleep uninterrupted through the night again. Then there was the day I walked them to school for their first day of kindergarten. As we got to the door of the school building where they were surrounded by neighborhood kids they had known all their life, John turned to me and said, “Go home, Mom.” I cried all the way home. How could they ever get through the day without me watching over them???
I must have done something right along the way because John and Michael have been a source of pride and joy to me since the day they were born.
Happy Birthday, Boys. You’ve made your mom very proud.
