Today marks the 9th year that I’ve been able to call myself a mom.
So much has happened in the last almost decade that I don’t even know where to begin.
Just since her last birthday she has completely changed.
No longer is she Miss Fancy Pants with a love of all things pink and purple.
Instead she is into black, red, skulls, and Angry Birds hats.
Mixed Martial Arts has helped her with coordination and determination.
Meat has been banned from her diet as she figured out her willpower was greater than her desire for ribs.
Homeschooling has allowed me to learn even more about her strengths and weaknesses.
The closer she gets to the teenage years, the more her attitude grows.
I have no idea what the next year will hold for her but I look forward to the future.
Happy birthday my Hayley Bug and thank you for making me a mom.
