(right before we found out we were pregnant with Miss P)
Justin and I have sure crammed in a lot of living in the last 8 yrs. and sometimes I just wish I could hit the pause button.
Don't you ever feel that way?
I suppose we all have this similar fate, of making the most out of the tornado of everyday life...but some days I just miss certain things about my life before P & R!
I miss sleeping in...
and not even really late, I would be happy with 8am...
instead of 5:55....I think this wake-up time has aged me like 10 yrs....
but we are working on that.
I miss late night sushi dinners....late night movies...late night nights
Those are really fun.
I miss just hopping in the car and going....
not triple checking to make sure I have everything-under-the-sun including snacks, water, diapers, pacifier, tissues, sunblock, crayons, paper, stroller, etc.
We are working on this too.
I miss alone time...
Can I get an amen?!
BUT, I am grateful beyond measure for how things have shaped up for us.
We could never imagine the life we have now...
and I feel so blessed to be home with my kids,
up at 5:55,
eating early chicken dinners,
taking shorter-not-as-exciting day trips,
with my two little sidekicks
that think I am
THIS I would not change for the world.
