November 21, 2012. Elisabeth turns 1. I turn into a total wreck.
I was recently watching an episode of “Parenthood” in which one of the couples sends their daughter to college. And I lost it. I can’t believe I have to send Elisabeth to college! … In 17 years.
As I am clearly emotionally incapable of accepting that my baby girl is no longer a baby baby, I will instead link you to her birth story.
Sorry, I just gagged. I hate that term, “birth story”. But that’s what it is, I guess. So in honor of Elisabeth’s big day, let’s revisit how she tortured me for the better part of 24 hours.
And while you’re reading that, I’m going to go crack open a bottle of champagne to celebrate surviving my first year of motherhood.
