Precious Days..

I heard her say today, in the car, "I'm really excited for school to start!"
I was mostly happy but a little sad to hear her say that. Happy that she is looking forward to a new year (with seemingly no anxiousness), but sad that "the summer they were 5 and 7 years old" is over in two weeks. So what do I do?

Jam the work into any quick moment I can grab.
Stay up late to get caught up on house stuff.
Run before they wake up.

And enjoy every minute of this month!

Picking fruit.
Going to the park.
Wearing jammies until 10 a.m.
Meeting friends at the pool.
Getting their very own library cards.
Staying up way too late.
Going to baseball games.
Going to the beach.
Meeting friends for slushies.
Nothing on the agenda but making friendship bracelets.

At the beach on Thursday, after picking fruit with Meema and Boppa, she laid out her towel in the sand and said to herself, "This is the best summer day."

At the pool on Friday, he asked me to snuggle with him in a towel and he whispered to me, "You are the greatest mom of the entire world."

I hope they remember all this. I hope I do, too.
Because these are precious days, my little kiddos.
And that's why I do it.

Mom loves you more than anything on earth. Never forget!

I'm a 39 year old stay-at-home mom. I have a 9 year old daughter and a 7 year old son. I have lived in the big city and in the mountains, but am happy to be back in the Midwest, raising the fam. I enjoy laughing, wine, bad karaoke, US Weekly, running, cemetaries, cheese sticks and short hair-dos. In my previous life, I was class-clown and a wanna-be comedian. In my professional life, I'm a journalism major with 10 years of marketing and PR experience. I dream of being a cast member on Saturday Night Live and working at Disney World as Snow White.
