So it’s your kid’s birthday. If you’re a mom blogger, that means writing a sentimental post that fondly recalls the first moment you locked eyes with your sweet newborn, retells an amusing anecdote from years past, and declares your unconditional love for the being you created. Now keep in mind that I’m not mocking these birthday posts. God knows I’ve written more than a few, and I absolutely love reading them.
This year, however, as my oldest son turns 7, I’ve decided to take a different approach to the birthday post. This year I’m celebrating me. It is, after all, not just the kiddo’s birthday. It’s also the 7th anniversary the day I became a mom—my “momaversary”! In honor of the occasion, I hereby dedicate the following post to me.
