How is it that one day you bring a tiny little infant home, and the next day (or so it seems) you turn around and they’re dressing themselves and talking to you about the meaning of life – as they understand it?er
Summer is for birthdays for our girls and it’s hard to believe that these tiny girls are turning 3 & 5 this year…
How did they get so smart? How did they get so sassy? I don’t remember – even though I’ve been here almost every single day of their existence.
How do we miss some moments and remember others?
Watching them do new things and forgetting what a struggle it has been – at times – for them to learn some things. Having conversations with these little people – whose brains are always surprisingly more developed than I realize – and marveling at their comprehension and intensity.
How GRATEFUL I am that I have been able to stay at home with them for the past 2 years. Sure, it’s been hard – and yes, I’ve cried a lot – but wow, it’s pretty amazing to be a mom and watch these little people grow in leaps and bounds.
Some days – it does feel like they’re growing like weeds – but most days, it feels like they’re growing like Flowers – big, beautiful, lustrous flowers, with bright – shiny faces turning upward – and every so often I get a whiff of the beautiful fragrance that God has showered over them…
