Enjoying today, cherishing yesterday and looking forward to tomorrow

Do you ever feel like you can’t wait for the next stage or milestone, but you aren’t ready for them to leave another one behind?

I can’t wait to help them with homework and discuss how their day at our local awesome elementary school went. I can’t wait to shuttle them to soccer practice. I am so excited to take them to movies without having to think about whether or not they’ll sit still and actually watch the movie. I can’t wait for road trips and discussing books and other things we can really enjoy in just a couple more years.

Yet there is a small part of me that is sad that I no longer have babes in diapers. There isn’t anyone small enough to lay in my arms and let me feed them. There aren’t sippy cups in my house any more. Or cribs.

Friends and family keep telling me to cherish these moments while they’re young brosbecause I’ll miss them. I already do! And I’m trying to hold on to each and every moment of today so I can have these memories. I know soon enough I’ll get to enjoy the fun things that come with bigger kids…and then preteens and teens…and on and on. And I’ll always miss certain things from yesterday. There’s no going back…

But I can have another baby.  Maybe…  ;0
