When you look into the eyes of your first new-born baby its at that moment you realise… your a mum. Not just any mum but your babies mum. You will always have somebody who loves you unconditionally. Holding Jack for the first time and the rush of emotion that came over me was so overwhelming. Scared and worried how would I cope? Am I good enough? Will we be okay? One thing is for sure I would try and be the best mum I could be.
It was yesterday whilst playing a game and I realised just how grown up he had become. I blinked and 7 years flew by. Jack has grown into such a dude and yes he has a temper and yes he can get frustrated but he is also loving and the cuddles are so special. He is funny and he has the best friends he could ask for. Friendships he has had since he was 4 years old. He has become a big brother twice over and became my number 1 chief helper there whenever I ask. In the grand scheme of things he always does what I ask, I may have to ask a couple of times but he does do it. I am so proud he is my son and I hope he is proud I am his mum.
Jack is my living arrow this week.
