I feel like a reporter who has to bow their head in shame while telling the nation, "I reported false news, I made a mistake." Well folks, I have done just that and so a correction on one of my previous posts must be made. My dear sweet mother called me and told me that she did not say, " you are not a mother until you have two children," but rather, "you are not really a parent until you have two children." There is a BIG difference there. You are most definitely a mother wether you have one or ten, but parenting just becomes a little more difficult as your brood grows. My mom would know, there are six of us. She said she got that off of a Bill Cosby Himself (which is hilarious by the way). He made the comment that parenting doesn't really begin until after two come along and her and my dad got a kick out of that. So anywho, my mom DID NOT SAY that you are not a mother with only one child. In fact, I have a sister with just one daughter and she is an absolutely wonderful mother, but I think she would admit that she did get to skip over a bunch of issues without a sibling around!
Joshua and I are still plugging along. Allie is doing wonderful. She felt Joshua move really good yesterday and she started scratching my belly saying she wanted to get him out. She would hug my stomach and say, "Jo-ua, my baby bwoter." Talk about making your heart melt!! Michael and I had a day to ourselves yesterday and had a wonderful time soaking in the quiet before our little man comes along. We are ready for it though, so ready!
