Life with a two year old

What can I say?? Life with a two year old!! I just can't believe how fast time has gone, wasn't it just a few months ago that I brought her home from the hospital? Wasn't it just yesterday that I was never sleeping at night? Well yes, it was yesterday in fact.

Time is a funny thing, you wish away the hours until the weekend, until your hubby comes home, until nap time, until lunch time, until....until....until. But then you look back and wish for all that time back. There must be a lesson there, that we all need to learn to cherish all the moments, good and bad. What I wouldn't give to sit and watch TV with her fast asleep on me, not daring to move so she didn't wake, grumbling because I wanted to do something else.....now with a 2 year old pushing hugs away, only laying her head on my shoulder when she is tired, I sure wish I had appreciated it fully at the time.

That being said, I do have to look back at those times, and realize that not all of it is lost moments.....just more than it should be. The hard thing is that you learn this from your first child, and I can imagine when you have the second you want to cherish the time, but it is even harder since you have two kids to care for, and the first one demanding your time. I imagine it would be even harder to find those cherished moments.

So glad you are blogging again!!! I love reading your thoughts!! We all wish time away too much hey - do you think it is posstible at the end to honestly say regrets I've had a few but too few to mention????

My story

Welcome to my blessed life!! Meet myself, a 32 year old stay at home momma. Meet hubby, who I have been married to for 14 years. We got married right out of high school, and while there have been many hardships, my husband is my best friend, and I wouldn't change a thing. We are living life with a 6 year old Grade oner, Gracie and 3 year old toddler, Alysha, which has its challenges, but we love every minute of it. God has blessed us with everything we need as well as tonnes of great friends and family.
