Reflection

I'm trying to learn this from Dr. Seuss:


There's is a very good chance I got teary-eyed while looking through pictures from just a few months ago.
It's all just happening so fast!

I don't like packing up clothes that don't fit.
I don't like lowering the crib mattress.
I don't like that Alice won't eat "baby food" (purees).
I don't like having to change the snaps on her diapers to make them bigger.
I feel like I'm going to wake up and my baby isn't going to be a baby anymore.

I'm going to make extra effort to find the joy in those things; to smile...because it happened.

Life is so good.
We are so blessed.

I know... it is sad.
Today I found a broken clay handprint from P3 in 2002. That was Kindergarten or so and it broke my heart like this tiny piece of him being a little boy was now broken and destroyed. It does go fast, but the new stages are good too. Hugs...

That is so well said - love it. These days are flying by so fast but we have so much to be thankful for. I am so glad I get to spend my days being "mommy" right now...even if it is mundane and tiring most of the time. Thanks for the reminder!

There is nothing new under the sun, right?
"Steal" away! :)
