I guess the easy answer for saying what I want for Mother’s Day is that I would love a big fat nap. But beyond that, from the depths of my heart, what I want for Mother’s Day and any other day, is knowing that I have helped you be your best self. I want to know that you are enjoying life to the fullest, and showing this world that you are so capable, even if you have an extra copy of a chromosome.
When I post things on social media, our friends notice the little things about you like how you roll up your sleeves before you set yourself to a task, or how you fold your little hands in your lap and giggle when you are so proud of yourself. I am beyond thankful for people who believe in what you can do, and who teach their children to include you and see all that you have to offer. The fact that your whole classroom clapped for you when you took successive steps all by yourself is testament to what the world can be if we all cheered for each other more often.
Your Proud Mama
