i will miss this one day, right?
these days of waking up to kids crawling all over my head and accidentally kicking me in the face. these days that seem to stretch endlessly into the distance. these days that start off with trying to figure out what to feed two very picky children. i will miss the questions that start off with mama 50 times in a row, right? these days of no privacy when i am in the bathroom doing my business, or taking a shower, or putting on my makeup. these days filled with dirty diapers, dirty dishes and a dirty house. i'm gonna miss all of this one day, right? but then there are days when i am present and here. i enjoy the moment of making something with micah while beatrix runs around the yard causing holy terror and shrieking like a pterodactyl. it is fun to watch his face transform when he sees a milk carton, some pop-cycle sticks and glue turn into a bird house.
and there are days when i hang thier little clothes on the line. and i take a step away from them and just look. i take a long look and i see that they are very little clothes. little underwear, and shirts and pants and tiny socks, evidence that right now i am in the thick of it. i am thankful for the moments when i appreciate my little ones and where they are right now.
cause someday, way too quickly, i will miss all of this.
