Shopping! We started our day at Kohls and bought the cutest newborn flip flops. Emotionally, walking through Kohl’s baby section today wasn’t as bad as my first experience. Signs, that I might actually be doing better with things now. Or maybe it was the fact that I had something way bigger to be nervous about....
Maddie’s first wedding reception.
Tons of people, tons of eyes, tons of comments. My head is spinning. Who knows, who will figure it out, who will say something, if they don’t say something does this mean they know, who will wonder if I know? It doesn’t stop....
I had a few people thinking about us and praying we would make it through this night without problems. I only had one moment, it was actually before the reception began. Maddox and I were in our pretty dresses outside, waiting for Scott. We were sitting on an old tree stump watching the leaves blow in the trees while I performed her cranial sacral exercises.
My pretty princess, all ready for the ball while I anxiously completed exercises to change the bone structure of her skull......Most definitely a moment that was not in my ‘master plan.’
But then it happened as it always does, Maddox flashed me a smile, a genuine, it’s going to be ok smile and I went with it. I dried those pity tears and decided we better rock tonight. You know what?
People spoke about how beautiful Maddox is, some simply looked, others smiled when they saw her, and a few even asked questions. So yes, everything I was anxious about happened, but the best part was that we managed.......FLAWLESSLY
After the reception Maddox got her first bath in Grandma’s sink. She slept in her own crib and blessed mommy and daddy with 10 solid hours of sleep. In the morning Maddox made her first visit to Sam’s Club. Mommy loved the bargains and Maddox loved...... The ceiling.
I couldn’t have asked for a better first wedding experience.
PS.....My little ROCKSTAR, I think I have an idea for next years halloween costume!
