Time after time

I was driving around town yesterday and a memory hit. I was reliving it like it was yesterday… literally….when I realized that it was almost a year ago.

A year! It was almost unfathomable to think that a year had gone by without me realizing.

My son is almost a year and a half

I have an almost 4 year old.

I am almost 33!

I know people say that when you have kids time flies, but this is just crazy.

I want my kids to stay little forever, but I am also looking forward to them growing up to see what they become.

Some of my friends are starting to have kids. I am very excited about this…my babies will have kids to play with.


I was talking to my friend the other day and she is in the same boat as me.

Her friends had kids after her, now in fact, and she has a 10 and 12 year old.

I realized that when my friends have kids mine will be growing up.

I will then be the one that has time to myself

that has kids that do their homework, go to school all day, go out with their friends


Right now I am a stay at home mom

There are days that I would like to go to work, to talk to grown ups and discuss things other than what My Little Pony episode to watch

Then there are the days that L asks if she can sit on my lap and watch a movie

Days when J walks over and gives me a kiss and says “up up”

I realize that there is no where in the world that I would rather be than with my babies

They one day all too soon will no longer be babies

I will miss the days that I can have them sit on my knee and cuddle

because after all “Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.”
