It was one of those moments that changed my life in an instant, with two small pink lines, I was pregnant. It was 1993 and I was days away from boot camp. The next 9 months were fairly easy; I was having a son, Nikoli Mikael or at least that’s what the doctors said.
The fates are a funny bunch.
My daughter was born today, 19 years ago. Yes, my daughter…. When she was born, they wrapped her in a blanket and said, “Here’s your daughter.” WHA??
She didn’t have a name for two days.
I’d been calling her Nik for months. So finally… she got a name as I was leaving the hospital.
Nik, Nikki Nu, Nik-Nak, NiNu, Ash
Happy Birthday to my daughter, I’m so happy I get to call you that!
