I cannot believe I have not used that title before, but apparently I have not.
I think I may go stark raving mad before I get old and gray. Yes I AM an older mother, but it isn’t just that…having one child that has a rare severe form of epilepsy and knowing that BOTH children were speech-delayed…sigh. It doesn’t make for a sane life, really.
My oldest, speech-delayed but not epileptic, is making up for lost time: “Mama, mama, mama…” and so on. My daughter, a delightful pixie, is climbing EVERYTHING and being cute and sweet…all while driving me mad.
I love my children and being their mother is a MUCH bigger adventure than I ever thought possible. I am learning so much from them – both of them. And I love them both with all of my being.
