I feel so blessed to have two amazing little sons who are healthy (most days) and growing and changing at such a rapid rate.
But oh, how life has changed...
In years past (they seem so long ago already!) Dave and I would have had friends over for dinner and watched the Ocars together. This year I watched them while sitting on the floor, one hand helping the 2 year old put together a wooden train, the other hand helping the 6 month old grab his brother's toy cars that were just out of reach of his chubby little hands.
This morning when I poured myself a bowl of cheerios I also poured some in a small plastic bowl with a picture of a shark on the bottom. During this seemingly simple and quick process I left the kitchen twice to make sure the 2 year old wasn't on top of the 6 month old who was playing on his mat on the floor in the living room.
Really relaxing nights watching tv with my husband now include something like this:
There is rarely a moment that I get to spend entirely alone in the bathroom.
Oh, and I typed a portion of this with one hand while breastfeeding and watching Max and Ruby on Nick Jr. (in Spanish to top it all off). My multi-tasking skills have increased exponentially since becoming a mom!
Yes, life has changed. I wouldn't trade any of it for a different life, but I certainly have my moments where I consider how different things are now. Here's to many more changes to come...
I'm a wife of seven years, a stay-at-home mom to two adorable little boys (no bias here), a follower of Christ, an American expat living in Mexico City, and a Spanish language learner, who is just trying to remember to count the many blessings in my life.
