This summer was filled with all things sweet baby and lovely wild toddler, and all the warm fuzzies and gushy post-partum hormones I could handle. I am ridiculously in love with my family… sometimes even I roll my eyes at the sappy thoughts that drip like sweet honey from my brain. Suffice it to say, the good overwhelms the not-as-good, and I pray that I can remember that on the hard days.
On the other hand, sometimes I am tired and annoyed, and just generally grouchy. I’m sure there are many (but not too many, hopefully) of those days in my future, especially as I return to life in the small-town as a SAHM of two, and finally get into my routine… day in and day out. Sometimes things happen to frustrate, hurt, or anger you… but I guess that’s life, and you eventually move on. The most important things in my life are my Jesus, my honey, my sweet babies, and friends/family. Everything else is just extra, and doesn’t really matter in the long run.
I am already anticipating this fall. The crunchy leaves and sweaters are signs of my favourite season. It’s so beautiful and crisp. There will be poopy diapers, potty training, transitioning to a big-boy bed, and figuring out how to shower/do housework/make meals/do my PM work, etc. whilst also keeping two littles alive and happy on my agenda for these few months. I shan’t be very busy at all…
Why is it that fall always seems to arrive “all of a sudden”? Is it because I’m so busy enjoying summer that I forget to anticipate fall’s arrival? How sad! As my favourite season, it deserves it’s own excitement. Next year I will try to remember to get excited about it in August at least.
This post is a bit random and ramble-ish… so I shall end here.
PS – Isaac’s little birthday party today was nice – we had a brunch with a few dear ones. He got some lovely gifts (clothing/toys), and got to skip his nap in order to play and say goodbye to Daddy who left to go back to AB today. We will join him in a week’s time! (Miss him already!).
