A Mother's Love: Dear, Keagan

Dear Keagan, 

When I was younger, I always knew that I wanted kids.  I dreamed of a daughter to dress and cover in pearls and a boy that could move a soccer ball just like his daddy. When we found out we were pregnant, I hoped that our first born would be a boy.  From the day that we found out that we had a little boy growing inside of mommy was the first day I remember your daddy being truly proud of you.  {I think its because he thought you were going to come out a little him because you were a boy...} Little did he know, you would come out with jet black hair and your big brown eyes, just like your mommy {which I think makes him love you that much more ;-)}.

There are so many moments that I can remember that have made me proud of you.  All of the normal, firsts, smile, laugh, wave, word, even the sound of your cry. And then there was your first parent day at preschool...

  All of the kids made a hand and a foot  mobile and the teacher wrote on the other side of each a hand and a foot what you would use each for.  Your teacher said that it was the first time in almost 30 years that a child refused to do his feet.  She said that you expalined to her that since you could only do one hand and one foot that you couldn't do a foot, you needed 2 HANDS to pick up and save animals. I think it was in that moment that I really realized that others would be able to feel your presence in this world, you have something about you that is different, YOU have something inside of you that is going to change this world and I fully believe you will do so by just following your heart.

Yesterday, you had your first soccer game.  Your passion and drive is fun to watch.  The things I will remember forever from your first game is not that your shoe came untied twice {which it did, double knoted or not} or that you helped a kid up after they had fallen to the ground during play{thats just what you do}, I will remember this...  I will remember the look on your face after scoring the last goal of the game, that smile with a thumbs up and then a 4 pump first pump at the end of the game.  It was a moment that not only were your Daddy and I proud of you but YOU were PROUD OF YOURSELF.  That is a moment that I will remember forever and my promise to you is to always  be your BIGGEST fan and you will always be MY SUNSHINE.
