Tiny handprints on windows, tiny fingerprints ALL OVER the fridge, toys strewn about the entire house, play dough bits, crayon on walls… it all drives me crazy but, I constantly remind myself that it will come to an end one day. There will come a day when my babies have grown and left our home to build their own. Nothing, good or bad, lasts forever. Everything we deal with, on a daily basis, is a temporary season in life… a temporary season. I know that I am going to miss the little things because these little monsters grow so fast! Potty training doesn’t last forever, toddler tantrums don’t last forever, baby snuggles don’t last forever, sleepless nights don’t last forever, beautiful coordinated little outfits definitely don’t last forever, lol… NOTHING about these babies is going to last forever. They grow every day and those tiny little hands will never again be as tiny as they are right now. My job is to make sure they grow and launch successfully.
I will take the challenges, as well as all of the snuggles and wonderful little things I experience, with these littles. I will cherish every moment and try to capture every little thing in my memories because one day, I will only have pictures and memories as they live the lives they were meant to live. My hope is that I help guide my children to grow and become adaptable, successful, wonderful human beings whom I would love to be friends with. To all the parents dedicating their lives to produce quality human beings, you are doing great! Keep it up because these times will be gone in the blink of an eye.
