So, last night, after I got all the kids off to bed, I quietly tiptoed to my bedroom, jumped into my cozy bed and snuggled under the covers with my hubby to watch a little Netflix. We were intently watching, whispering our theories about that crazy plot twist and as I wrestled the covers back to my side, what do I find? A tiny cookie in the shape of a teddy bear, crumbly, stale but still whole, has somehow found its way into our bed. I pick it up and show it to my husband who shrugs and says, “Meh…we’ve found worse.”(True parents at their best, people!) So I shrug, laugh and then dispose of the tiny cookie invader.(No, I did not eat him! Although…:))
I tell you this story to say, enjoy those moments. Your children may drive you crazy sometimes, do things you don’t understand, or stretch/stress you in ways you never thought possible but take those moments in stride. Those time are periods of growth, love and learning for both you and your children. They are only young for a short time and there will come a day when you will look back on those memories and know how sweet and precious they were.
So, love your children(even the teddy bears cookies and goldfish crackers).
Don’t make them grow up too fast.
Let them be little.
