Sentimental Play Dates

Yesterday the kids and I had a play date with some friends!  These kids have literally been friends since birth!  Cassie and I were pregnant together the summer of 2010.  We have some great memories!

And then it hit me.

Where did my baby go?

I sat there watching them as they got comfortable for their movie and realized I was staring at a little boy and a little girl.  They weren't babies anymore, but little toddlers.

All of a sudden the previous conversations Cassie and I had about tantrums, the Terrible Twos, and stubbornness melted away.  All I wanted to do was scoop up my three little ones and hold them tight and never let go, hoping that would help them stay the size they are at this very moment.

Later in the evening I got to talking to Paul about how busy our marriage has been so far!  We will be celebrating our 5th anniversary and we have had something big happen every. single. year.  I feel like I have yet had a chance to just sit down with him because we live such a busy life.

I got to looking at my handsome husband, and then saw myself in the mirror, and realized we don't look the same as we did when we were first together.  Are those the beginning of crow's feet I see around my eyes?  Life is constantly changing -- it stops for no one!

How many times have we missed the best things because we have have had our eyes closed?  Too many times I'd say.

I don't think the world will come to a crashing halt if I stop to smell the roses instead of wash dirty dishes.. just a thought..

Life is too short.  I don't want to miss out on a thing!


  1. Life won't come to a crashing halt, but you'll soon run out of clean dishes. ;-) HAHAHAHA!

  2. Yep! 3 year wedding anniversary and 5 year dating anniversary and I feel the same. Something is always going on. But, I do enjoy it. I enjoy the slow moments right with the life changing :)

  3. Look back at those see the clueless, young look? Now you see the face of a capable pair of grown ups. Its a good thing!
