About Me

I placed my daughter in an open adoption in 2002. I started this blog in 2004 as a place to journal and eventually I became part of a community. The community has moved on, but I have decided to come back.

Friday night: Drive in pouring rain. Get there at 8:30ish


Saturday: gymnastics (cool), swim (cut short due to crying), McDonald's, flower girl dress trying on and buying (she told the lady she had two moms).

Saturday night: babysitting- pizza party, High School Musical, Wii, and random breaking down in tears, much of it about missing her mom (that was fun), snuggling her to sleep because she wanted me to stay with her.

Sunday: more driving, less rain

For the first time since my daughter was born, I missed her birthday party.

I planned to go, but decided the morning of that I just couldn't cram it in to an already packed weekend.

I felt awful.

I missed the birthday during the year when she's obsessed with me.

My fiance wants to move across the country next summer so this was probably the last birthday party I could attend.

It was rough.

The silver lining is that I'll be going there this weekend and staying from Friday to Sunday.

It's my daughter's birthday today.

I just got home and realized I hadn't called. Now it's too late to call.
