One year my siblings and I told our parents we needed to have a Kids' Day. "You guys both get a Mother and Father's Day, so why don't we?" We asked. Our parents looked at each other and smirked. "Every day is Kids' Day!" They said. But they gave us one anyway, every summer. That's when they would stock us up on new croquet sets, swim gear, you name it.
This is a photo of my mother when she was pregnant with me. She would get sick the whole nine months, being put on an i.v. because she couldn't keep anything down. And she did this four times! I'm so grateful to her for her sacrifice, and for the sacrifice that my dad made as well.
This pregnancy has been a whole lot easier than my last one (so far) and I'm so grateful for that! The time has been flying, and before I know it I'll have another little one in my arms. I'm really trying to enjoy every minute I get with Aspen during the day while it's just the two of us, because I know before long our life will get a bit more complicated!! Anyway, thanks Mom and Dad for your example, and for being such great parents!
