My Kid is Awesome!

Kyla recently had a photo shoot for Infinity Wellness (her Personal Training and Life-Coaching business) done by KMT Photography with Carson, a client (Isabeau) and her daughter. How proud am I?! 😉

Grandmotherhood…

Carson Anthony Ward

Wow.

Just…

Wow.

Very soon now

My baby will bring forth her own baby into the world.

And…

I.
Am.
In.
Awe.

His name is Carson Anthony Ward, the already so-much-loved progeny of Kyla Ward (nee Becker) and Colton Ward.

I am already in love with him. Carson, that is, not Colton; although as sons-in-law go, I’d rank him fairly high.

Carson is due on the 22nd of June, but I have been adamantly maintaining that he will make his appearance on the 10th, so I’d guess I’d better stick by that.

I can’t wait to meet him!

I’m not sure I even know where to begin…

I was asleep when the ball dropped – woke up when the kids all called for rides home at the same time. It took me three trips, and I drive a mini-van. That’s a lot of drunken 20-somethings…

That old saw about “how you ring in the New Year is an indicator of how your year will go” is flat-out bullshit, if my January has anything to say about it, by the way. I’d have thought January would be a calm and steady same-old, same-old kind of routine month.

BUT.

Motherhood Did Not Always Become Me…

Ky & Patch-1998

Don’t Let Her “Wide-Awakety” Fool You… This picture was likely taken at 2 AM.

There are things I did as the mother of a toddler, that would totally have embarrassed me to admit, back when my now-all-grown-up little girl was still a toddler. It’s a little embarrassing to admit to those things even now, although she did survive. It’s more surprising that *I* survived, to tell the truth.

Ky was one of those kids that refused to sleep at night. I joke around with new mothers all the time, about how my kid is 20-years-old and hasn’t slept through the night yet. She wanted to sleep during the day, but that was mainly because she didn’t sleep at night. Ever.

Kyla got a summer job at the YMCA as Camp Coordinator of several of their kids day camps – four of them if I’m not mistaken. FOUR! Not sure how she’s gonna pull it all off, but I do know she has “homework” every night.
