My First Mother's Day as a Mom - 1954

My First Mother’s Day as a Mom – 1954

Journal entry – May 9, 1954:  Nancy was two weeks old on Mother’s Day.  She celebrated by waking up  at 3:30 AM and staying awake until 6:00 AM.  I accompanied her.  (Note:  I remember that she was lying in bed beside me, eyes wide open and trying so hard to talk.)  Her Daddy bought a box of chocolates for her to give me and a card signed, “Daddy and Nancy”.

I followed that first celebration with three more children and many more happy Mother’s Days.
