This is my very first Mother’s day as a grandmother…

Baubie, that’s what I’m called. I love this little boy of ours, Aiden. Our first boy! Now everyone knows how much I love my children, my grown up girls, but everything he does has a great wonderment to me, a miracle. His first roll over, his first smile… I find at this point of my life that I wish my mother on this Mother’s Day was here to have seen her great grandson. She would be walking him up and down streets in a stroller explaining the architecture of the buildings, or some historical fact to him. I know she would be so proud of both of my girls, with their lives, the decisions they have made. Wistfully, I wish she and my father could see this great circle of life in our family, now moving forward. So Happy Mother’s Day to all of you, cherish each moment you have with your children, your grandchildren, because in a blink… they have grown up.
