Yep, that's right. 26 years ago today AND 21 years ago today I gave birth. My son Dustin was born 26 yrs. ago today and Owen was born 21 yrs. ago today. Not planned that way...totally spontaneous events...........from conception to birth!! LOL
They are the best things that ever happened to me. They are as different as daylight and dark. That's what makes them terrific. The oldest is the more scholarly, book-nerd (an Affectionate term) and the youngest is more of the get your hands dirty type of kid. I was always destined to be a mom. I love being a mom...from 2 a.m. feedings to helping with homework, little league, band, girls, broken hearts, a marriage...you name it. It's the most amazing thing in the world....and the most stressful, the most rewarding...the most infuriating....you get the point.
There are times I look back and think I could've done this better or that better. Why didn't we do this? Did I warp my child for life? Who knows. What I do know is that I spent their entire lifetimes doing what I (we --- husband and me) thought was in their best interests.
I am truly blessed. They are two wonderful men now. I couldn't be more proud! I love them with all my heart!
