sometimes i'm guilty of not enjoying the moment. okay, not just somtimes, but often. i get too easily frustrated by day-to-day life with toddlers. over the past three years, i've found myself thinking that things would be so much easier once they were sleeping through the night, crawling, walking, talking, feeding themselves, out of the stroller...and the list goes on. these days i keep saying "once they are potty trained..." the truth is that things don't really ever become easy. they just change. they grow up. pretty soon they will be potty trained. then they will be in school. driving. going to prom. college. married. i'll look back one day and wish that they still needed me at 2 o'clock in the morning. i'm trying so hard not to wish this time away. it is too short. somedays i'm better at this than others. but for today, i am their mommy. i wipe noses and bottoms, brush hair, bathe and dress. i get to kiss boo-boos and buckle shoes. that's something to be thankful for!
