My mother said that she was hoping for a Halloween baby. I always laughed that, and I would tell her, “Mom does that mean you were hoping that I would be a terror when I came out?” That always made her laugh. I didn’t wait until October 31st to be born, absolutely not. Much like I have lived all of my life I had my own plan. I was going to come out kicking and screaming whether they were ready for it or not. Clearly, they were not ready. I joke, but my mom and dad were the most amazing parents ever. My mother didn’t have me until she was almost 40, severely complicated pregnancy. She literally almost lost me four times, four times my father had to leave work early, four times my mother was rushed to the hospital, two times they kept her in the hospital for more than two weeks on bedrest. She did all of that for me. Being a parent, it’s a whole other stack of responsibilities but I was lucky because my parents took their responsibility very seriously. So, it was a no-brainer when I heard about a country music festival and it was right around my birthday, I had to take them. I saved up for four months and bought us tickets and I even had a surprise for them. The biggest surprise of my life. Sometimes, we try to live our lives according to a plan, but those things that we plan for end up being the biggest regrets. Yeah, biggest regrets.
