The happiest day of my life

Dear Max

Happy second birthday dude!!! I am full of tears and smiles and memories of that best day of my life. The day my heart became bigger, and my learning and growing began in earnest.

The last two years have been amazing with you and you’ve opened me up to new ways of seeing things, plus I got to work at a parenting magazine, and connected with some of the most gorgeous and amazing moms. I have lost sleep, I have laughed, I have wept, I have agonised, I have stumbled, and I’ve erred. I’ve felt guilt, confusion, conviction, pride and happiness, and this feeling that I have the greatest child.

I wish you a year of growth, smiles, fun and learning, and that when you fall, you’ll get up in good time, and that the hurts won’t override the thrills. I wish you continued health and security, and hope that you will continue to be embraced in love by your small family and larger extended one.

You have made my days for the last two years, and my greatest privilege is being your mom. Happy birthday dude, and many more great ones to come.

I love you, my two-year-old.


Two years later... perfection still
