Something tells me it’s not going to be easy, anyway.
Shell of Things I Can’t Say is wonderful and it is hard to put into words how amazing she is. I met her in real life at the Type A Mom Conference last fall and she was as friendly, a personable and real as you would think she is after reading her posts. I went to the conference hoping to learn about blogging and I did. A lot of what I learned was from Shell. She is not a blogger who is guarded about the secrets to her success. Shell shared blogging insights I really needed to hear to move forward in blogging. I will be forever thankful that she is who she is and she shares it with others.
*When my baby would sleep through the night
*When my baby could walk
*When the next baby was born
*When the NEXT baby was born
*When all my boys are out of diapers
*When we’re past the stroller stage
*When all my boys are in school
Thinking everything would get simpler and easier.
Rush, rush, rush through all the frantic moments.
But then I take a good look at my boys. My oldest, who is finishing his first year of kindergarten. My middle, who just turned five. My BABY who is turning 3 in a few weeks.
And I realize that I don’t have babies any more. My boys are getting so big.
And I want to pause life for a moment.
Pause it while they still fit in my lap.
Pause it while they still want me to tuck them in at night.
Pause it while they still want to hug me in front of their friends.
Pause it while they think I’m the most beautiful girl in the world.
Pause it while they are my little boys.
Time is moving fast enough. I don’t need to wish away their childhoods, just to get to the “easy” stuff.
So, I’d like to pause life for a moment and enjoy my babies. I just won’t call them that where they can hear.
Please stop by Things I Can’t Say and let Shell know how much you have enjoyed this post.
