If you follow Gabrielle,
then you’ll know she is a hands on mom who always wants what’s best for her
To mark the special occasion, the 47-year-old took to
Instagram with a message so many parents will be able to relate to.
“Scared to hold you. Scared to burp you. Scared to reveal I
have no clue what I'm doing. Scared to go to work. Scared to stay home. Scared
when you sleep. Scared when you wake up. Scared I'm not living up to some
impossible standard of motherhood. Scared I'd lose myself. Scared I'd be
exposed as a failure, as less than, not as good as, not as comfortable as, not
as... anything [sic],” she wrote.
“But there you were, every day, looking up at me, like
"gurl, you got this!" When I let go of my fears of judgement and just
did my best and recognized that my best would and could change from day to day
and life would magically go on... Man, I finally allowed myself to just enjoy
you @kaaviajames and relax into the peace of imperfection. 1 year in and your
whole village stays smiling. The family you know and all the cyber aunties and
uncles you may never meet, we celebrate you [sic],” she added.
