Day 12 – Yesterday’s topic (yes, still behind from this weekend) was “something I miss.” I decided to go with times in my life that I miss.
Everything was easy. Don’t laugh, but one of my favorite memories was coming home from school on Fridays (my mom stayed home on these days)! The reason I loved coming home was because the house was SUPER clean, dinner was cooking, potpourri was sprayed (I still use the same kind today) so the house smelled good, our rooms were clean, laundry was all folded back in our drawers, and it was just really CALM. What kid likes that? I grew up with 3 other siblings, so maybe calm was what I liked. I can’t wait to provide the same memories to my kids. This was the only “kid” picture on my computer.
Best advice I can give a young married couple…Enjoy only each other for a while. You will NEVER get that time back.
Even though Beckham sleeps through the night, I can’t go to sleep when he does because I feel like I’m wasting precious time I could be cleaning, blogging, relaxing, running errands, working on business, etc. This was the best nap I ever had. We were in Punta Cana, DR. No worries or stresses, just having to plan our next meal.
Well, not entirely. But I do miss the ease of this stage. He slept all the time and was quiet when we went out to dinner. Specifically between 3 – 6 months when he was sleeping through the night, but still sleeping throughout most of the day and when we were out. I mean, when you can position a baby like this, all while they’re asleep, that’s pretty hard sleep!
With all that said, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE where my life is at right now. Living those memories now would mean I wouldn’t be living through my current dreams now. I have dreamed of this job since I was a little kid. And it is more than what I had imagined. I used to dread Sundays, which was the day before a work week. Now, I get excited because it’s the start of our scheduled week (baby on a schedule is a happier baby). I cannot thank this man enough for being a MAN and taking care of his family!
