This isn't one of my amazingly crafty,thrifty and purely awesome posts that i usually come out with. (i swear, im not that conceited,lol) This blog post would fall under the "general musings" category.
Before you have children, people tell you how fast they grow, how quickly time passes and you nod your head and smile politely, but you don't really know what they mean until you have children yourself.
Baby Coupon is almost 19 months now and it seems like just yesterday i found out i was pregnant with her. It is truly amazing how fast they grow. One minute, you have a cute,squishy little human sleeping peacefully in your arms and then in the next blink they are running around your house with your bra on their head yelling "i mama! I mama!" I am not one of "those" mom's who cry and carry on when their child grows into the next size of clothing, or when they move from a bottle to a sippy cup. But, every once and a while i wish i could freeze the moment i just had with my daughter, make it linger just a little longer. Her sweet laughter and innocent mischief are soon going to give way to quick, excited good-byes as she hurries off to see her school friends.
As much as i want her to grow and flourish, i also want her to slow down, just a bit. I want to make her freeze in time so that i can enjoy her as she is now, for just a little bit longer. We all know that's not going to happen, we all know that before we know it, our "babies" will be graduating college and soon having babies of their own. . . . But, one can wish. And that's what I'm doing with this blog post, wishing a little, and grieving the passing of time, just a little.. . :)
