My baby's 5th birthday

My baby's 5th birthday...oh, and Canada Day!

Five years ago, at the stroke of midnight and with the nurses singing "oh Canada" down the hall, my baby boy Andreas was born. The midwife, knowing the emotion behind the day actually let me chose his birthday because it was so close to midnight. Rightfully (and legally) we chose July 1 because as much as I didn't want it to happen on that day, it did. Andreas has brought so much joy to my family, on a day that is always filled with sadness. And while it's a blessing, it can be so damn stressful at times! In 5 years with our amazing boy, I've learned so much of what I can and can't do on that day and in the end, he just wants his mom to be present with him (and lots of presents)! 

Whatever you have planned for the weekend, I wish you a happy, safe and relaxing time. Happy Canada Day!! 🇨🇦
