D is for Dates.

Welcome back to my alphabet series… this time I am going to talk about..

Dates –

Now this isn’t going to be about, getting dressed up and going out for a nice meal with the husband, but more about important dates and what they mean to me, obviously..

September 27th 2008 I met up with my now husband at the local pubs for a few drinkies and chats, its pretty handy having your wedding anniversary on the same day you started being a couple, well sort of easy as I can remember forgetting our 3rd just because we had been so busy with the children.. but we got married on the same date as when we met, most couples have a special date.. and that is ours..

March 24th 2010, the day I became a mum, its such a blur now, it was a dark morning, he was born at 1am, after getting his shoulders stuck and being yanked out with forceps.. He was dumped onto of my stomach, crying and kicking about.. and its been 7 years now.. very quickly coming up to 8, time isn’t fair and doesn’t keep its promise of not slowing down.. he made me feel like an adult for the first time in my life.

October 28th 2011, the day I became a mother of two, the day I dealt with being told I was cruel for giving my newborn formula and the day I promised not to judge a mother like that midwife judged me, she was born at 2am, perfectly healthy and came in to the world without any help apart from some hands catching her.. she is now 5 and very quickly coming up to 6.. time you are mean!!

April 19th 2016, third times a charm, she came into the world so quickly after spending such a long wait in the hospital, healthy but tiny and squeaking like the little bird she is, I think she changed me completely, she made me think before I speak, she made me see how immature others can be.. and she completed my transition into a fully fledged adult and the age of 30..

Those are my important dates, they all mean different things to me, but each of them will forever stick with me as I move on in this life..

Until next time

    I have a similar set of dates, the day we got together, the day we got married, the day my daughter joined us and then my son. I don’t think I will ever forget them!

    Beautiful dates and definitely ones to remember. I remember the day me and Michael met.

    I love this post idea! – I joked to my partner we’d have to get married on our anniversary date, least then he might stand a chance of remembering it lol! x

    What a wonderful list of dates you have! I hope someday I’ll have a list as fulfilling as yours!

    Structuring this around dates was a cool concept!
