For Tricia...

Tonight, when I was doing my daily check in on Tricia, Nathan and Gwyneth over at Confessions of a CF Husband, Nathan posted a link in this post Nathan sent everyone over to Crazy in Love where she lists all of the experiences that she can not wait to read about Tricia, and Gwyneth (and Nathan) sharing, with all of us mommies! (and daddies!)

Crazy in Love invited everyone to join in and post things that we can't wait to hear about Tricia and Gwyneth sharing.

So here is my list....

I can't wait for you to experience....

2 am feedings

3 am blow out poopy diapers

4 am I scared, can I get in your bed?

5 am waking to toes in your neck...

6 am pancake breakfasts on the first day of school...

7 pm bed time stories....

8 pm just one more story? Peas?

9 pm I am thirsty....

11 pm I just can't fall asleep.....

Watching Little Mermaid so many times you can sing every song in tune and along with Gwyneth.

Crying as you drop her off at kindergarten the first time.

The first time Gwyneth comes home crying because a friend says that they are not friends any more.

Sitting at the kitchen table doing homework

The first parent teacher conference when the teacher tells you what a bright wonderful sweet daughter you have.

Hearing her sing her abc's the first time...

Letting her pick out her own clothes, and biting your tongue when what she wants to wear doesn't match...

Going the entire day without realizing that you have spit up down your back, until you get home from evening services and change into your pjs, and thinking to yourself , how long has that been there, and praying that it was just since her last feeding 2 hours ago, when your loving husband tells you it has been there since 8 am.

Flashlight races...

Hearing those three little words... I lub you...

The first date with a boy....

The first heart break...

The first big school play....

The first sleepover...

Graduation from high school...

Graduation from college...



My Challenge to all your blogging mommies...

If you are reading this and you are a mommy, I encourage you (for fun) to do something like this for Tricia on your blog. Tell her all the special, frustrating, wonderful moments that you hope she gets to experience just because she's a mommy now too.

(Leave a comment on here, and at Crazy in Love if you do it so that we can link to your blog.)
