This picture was taken the day I became a mother for the first time.
Just before Jackson was born, my mom wrote me this poem that I will always love.
"I'll never forget that date
It was back in November, 1978
I was just 25, the same age as you
I was happy and excited, but a little scared too
I woke up early that Saturday morning
I was having a baby, you gave little warning
We drove to the hospital, you weren't going to wait
And when they examined me, they screamed "She's dilated to eight!"
I'm not gonna lie, the pains were getting stronger
They called for the doctor, you wouldn't wait any longer
And then straight from God up in heaven above
He sent me another little angel to love
The feelings I had I could never replace
The first time ever I saw your face
You were so beautiful, so precious, so sweet
From the top of your head to your tiny little feet
Now you're all grown up and it's your turn
All those amazing feelings you're about to learn
I love you so much, and I know God does too
Cause now he's preparing to send an angel to you."
11 years later, and it still makes me cry. There is nothing in this world like a mother's love.
My name is Kaci. I am a working mom of 3. Wife to Josh. Mom to Jackson, Cameron & Isabella. My life is dinner, homework, baseball, basketball, grocery lists, laundry, middle school, wine, video games, and schedules. I started this blog because I love taking pictures, and I needed a place to document our life. I wanted a place to write it all down, to remember little details so easily forgotten in the mad rush that is the life of a family of 5. Through my photos and words, I endeavor to capture our story.
