isn't a mother supposed to like her child? instead of going out of her way to make said child feel guilty and worthless? i swear to everything holy, i will do better by my children than is done to me. i swear it.

i am having a difficult time grasping the fact that my firstborn, so sweet she makes my heart ache, so kind and so loving that i want to protect her from the hurts of the world, is nine today. she is joy and sunshine and everything beautiful in the world, and i am so lucky to be her momma.

"there's no fortune at the end of the road that has no end. there's no returning to the spoils once you've spoiled he thought of them. there's no falling back to sleep once you've waken from the dream. now i'm rested and i'm ready ... to begin."
