What I see in this picture is two very big sisters and their baby sister. The twins told me they wanted to wear these footie pajamas one more time, even though they’re a little tight. They are still so little in my eyes. They’re my little twin-sickles. My miracle babies. My NICU babies. I’m feeling all the feelings about them tonight in the onesies. I can still see them being swallowed in their premie pajamas that were so big on them. You both drive me more crazy than any other humans in the planet. You make me repeat myself over and over. You can both focus in on something and tune the rest of the world out. You play so well together and have the biggest imaginations. Lily, you’re my sensitive one who wears her emotions on the surface. You’re so passionate about the things you love (ask her to perform for you- you’ll get a show). Kyri, you’re my logical one and asks more questions than anyone I know. You are strong willed and loyal. You’re both catching up in size with your big sister so quickly! And baby Audrey thinks she’s just as big as you three. I’m proud to be your mom. Grow slow my twins.
I found a pan in front of the front door and one of my shoes on the couch as well.
We're told "one day you're going to miss this" and to "enjoy it while it lasts"
I agree with that sentiment but I also think it's ok to get fed up with putting the Tupperware away for the 500th time that day.
I think we should be allowed to get frustrated at our kitchen stuff being at our feet so we trip on them constantly.
I think we should be able to get annoyed at the baby clinging to our legs because they want attention or are hungry and you're trying to make dinner.
I know those things are said in encouragement to help me appreciate this time more but at the same time it makes me feel guilty when I'm not enjoying every day of constant mess.
So Mama, tomorrow, I give you permission. Get annoyed for a bit at the constant tripping or the long days. Then move on and start fresh.
We had a wonderful family fun day at Sea World. We often don't get to spend the whole day as a family. Since Kenny works all week and I work on the weekends and in the pockets of time he's home. So this was a much needed family outing.
