It was 16 years ago today that this handsome young man came into my life. I entered the labor & delivery room around 3:00am and told the nurse I needed to go to the restroom. Everything was fine until the Doctor walked in the room and asked 'Where's Tava'...the nurse politely said oh she's in the restroom...the Doctor freaked out and started asking me if I was o.k., that I wasn't pushing (I guess she was afraid I would have him in the toilet...LOL) I calmly said 'I'm fine'...she then said well we need to get you out of there I don't want anything to happen. So I got on the bed, they checked me out and told me it wouldn't be long. The contractions came strong and there was this ugly almost dead plant hanging in the corner and that was my focus point...so I remember the Doctor asking me if we knew what the baby was...I told her no because if I'm going through all this pain I want a surprise at the end...the Doctor lit up and said 'I love surprises and this will be fun'..FUN...oh glad you're having FUN!!! No but seriously 45mins later, focusing on a half-way dead plant and 3 pushes, Trennon John entered the world. He weighed 8lbs 2oz and I'll never forget when the Doctor announced 'It's a Boy'..I saw this neon flashing sign that said 'You're Done'.....I thought that meant because I had one girl and one boy that I was finished having children...which at the time I was like...'OK...glad that's over with'....little did I know that 4 years later Bromley would come along. I guess the 'You're Done'...meant that Trennon was here safe and sound and that I was done with the pregnancy, but then a whole new beginning started when he came home.
Trennon has truly been a wonderful son...challenging at times (especially when he was little). He was always so ACTIVE and into EVERYTHING...wasn't naughty or mischievious just BUSY, BUSY, BUSY. I went through 4 babysitters before I was able to found one that understood his Busy--ness and there were times when I thought 'If he had of been my first, it would have been my last'...because you seriously could not turn your back for 1 second and he was off getting into something else. He has since grown into a PHENOMENAL Young Man who is truly the 'love of my life'. He is kind, loving, driven, great student, self-motivated and my list could go on and on.
I know that he will achieve all that he sets his mind too. He is a GREAT, GREAT kid and all I can say is 'I'm so glad he's mine'. I love you and hope your 16th Birthday is everything that you want it to be.
Happy Birthday Sweetheart...I Love You More than you will ever know!!
