My little Ava will be 2 1/2 in a couple of days. She’s a light in my life, and the cause of the sleep deprivation I’ve experienced since week 1 of my pregnancy.
Ava’s the sweetest and most considerate person I know. She’s highly intelligent and very observant. I’m not boasting – I speak the truth. (Last week she assembled two Ikea bookshelves.)
Her likes are: Reading, colouring, playing Hide and Seek, Dora, Max and Ruby, animals, and music.
As she grows, and her bright eyes show more knowledge, I know that I’ll be in for a fun ride. Some days are smooth, and other days I’m hanging on, gritting my teeth, and feeling resentment that I alone have to handle some situations. Alas, this is the reality of being a Solo Mommy, and if I were to sugarcoat it I wouldn’t be doing myself any favours. I’m human, she’s human, and this life is a journey… not a destination … Steven Tyler says so….
