A private celebration

Wednesday, September 02, 2015

It's a little past midnight and it is officially our oldest kid's birthday. I'm exercising restraint by sending him only one text. And I'm sitting here on the sofa celebrating these years of motherhood.

The smartest thing I have done is somehow finding the hub - he has been the funniest, most patient, sweetest, and funnest life partner. And the most amazing thing I have done is to be lucky enough to be a mother. I think I've learned as much from parenting as our kids have learned from me, and we laugh every. single. day. It hasn't always been easy, but even the worst days have been treasured.

So I have been looking through old pics and came across some favorites. Our kid had 2 best buddies in preschool; they were only children when they met, and within a year they each had acquired a younger sibling. We took this group photo of the three prototypes and their followup models:

Two of the original 3 musketeers are now over 6' tall; we've lost track of the third. All three are now young college men. How did that happen so quickly?

    What a lovely tribute to your family! It's moving to hear of your happy marriage and motherhood. You are so right to treasure each day, no matter how hard, and you are so right that our children's lives progress in a flash! It's hard not to yearn for the sweet days of their babyhood, but life goes on, and your big/little guy I am sure has made all the trouble of childhood not only worthwhile but the best thing ever!

    Now, all those cute pairs are adorable, but I'm guessing that duo in the middle is the most beautiful in your eyes. Did I get it right?
