Happy Birthday Shelby
My baby girl turns 7 tomorrow!! Where does the time go?? Every day I am just amazed at what a beautiful, smart person she has become. Though there are days I just want to strangle her because she is so stubborn (gets that from daddy I am sure!!)
You know, I don't think anyone can fully understand how your life changes with a child, until you have one of your own. People will tell you how you will do anything for your child and you kind of go "Yeah, yeah" but that feeling is SO strong with your own kids. Even when I am mad at Shelby, my heart just breaks to see her upset. And that saying "This hurts me more than it hurts you?" So true!!! Kids do not understand what emotions we deal with on a daily basis all because of them!
Chad and I will joke around about a life without Shelby and how nice it would be but seriously, I don't know what I would do without her. On days that I get to myself I look forward to when she gets picked up but miss her terribly the whole time she is gone!
Happy Birthday Baby!!
