Lola was singing funny made up songs in the car this morning. One went like this: "My mom is the best mom, my mom is the best mom..."
I really liked that song, needless to say. Being the modern day mother that I am, I bragged about it on Facebook, to the amusement of several of my friends.
When I checked my Facebook page a few hours later, I saw that silly little line again and a rush of gratitude came over me, simply because I am able to say I am a mom. And the best mom at that.
I was 41 years old when Lola was born. To be honest, I did not think I would ever be a mother. And I was okay with that. I knew there would always be a small regret that I would never experience being pregnant or knowing first hand what it is like to love a child of your own, to see yourself in your offspring, to raise a little person. But it did not consume me. I believed it just wasn't meant to be.
But it was meant to be and thanks to Lola, and Ryan, I am able to brag that my child thinks I am the best mom there is.
Thank you Lolalief, you are the best daughter in the whole wide world!
