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.”
