Today I had my first baby. She was so little and wanted only her momma. She didn’t want to be put down even in her sleep. She loved books and pushing furniture around. Showing off her strength still. Today she loves snap chat and selfies. She’s a National team captain and on Kindness club and Student Council. She enjoys school and being with family. She loves to antagonize her little sister but looks after her. She loves food and jeans. She’s a casual athletic type that makes us laugh with her quick wit. She can be sassy sarcastic one minute then sweet and silly then next. She’s definitely got the “adolescence.”
I wish she didn’t have to grow so fast. I wish I had more time to be near here. This thought makes me weep. But I must be grateful. She makes me appreciate every moment I am given with her. And she’s guiding me through this whole raising teenagers gig. I think I’m doing okay. I am trying my best. I will always be here for you Catalina. I will always be your Momma.
