It doesn’t happen everyday, sometimes not every week, but you know that feeling when everything seems to just fit. That was my day today. Extra thankful that hubs was able to take our boy to hockey practice and then meet my family at the arena. A day where everyone woke up well rested, happy and we all got out the door on time. A day where I felt and was very productive at work with things taken care of. Where even after two kids sports I could still take 2 children to pick up some groceries peacefully. Being able to prepare our home made pizzas for dinner while the Littles prepared themselves for bed after showers. To eat happily with my children and snuggle up for a book together. Tucking our babies into bed and heading up to my office to download and edit the photos from this past weekends big Patriots games, enjoying my pvr’d Young & The Restless, lunches prepared in the fridge… And blogging from bed.
A day where everything fits? Or a dose of reality. Because this doesn’t happen everyday. So why is it a dose of reality.
1. Hubby isn’t home as he has school bright and early in KW tomorrow… I can never get to sleep in good time when he isn’t home. When he isn’t home I always become sappy and typically pictures are involved 😉
2. Our babies are growing up. So. Fast.
Many moments of frustration, stress or walking through a cluttered hall will all matter in some way differently to each parent. As a parent who personally suffered from Infertility, each moment forward we make with them, each challenge that is not taught but navigated through together, it seriously reminds me just how lucky I am to have them. As a mother who still has and feels the physical pain of infertility, I can become a sentimental sap just thinking of how thankful I am. Thinking of a couple parenting/children frustrations we’ve been dealing with for many months now, I can finally see the light, wow its refreshing!
That is what a day like today does, as I lay here thinking that life has certainly not been easy, we’ve most definitely has our share of ups and downs, trials and tests, but it’s all led us to where we are today.
Now for it to hopefully continue tomorrow… I must get some sleep 😉
It’s been a very long time, very long, but really have I ever felt this content and able to enjoy life, to truly enjoy our kids, with all of the happiness and stress that comes with it?
I honestly don’t think I have, it’s been a long time coming, it feels good. Life sure is not perfect, I’m most likely jinxing myself for a morning from he’ll tomorrow 😉 Ah well. Today I earned it.
