I don't know if anyone else has ever felt like I do. Most of the time I am happy to put my kids to bed because it has been a long day and I need some "me time". But then there are times like tonight, that I really don't want to let my kids fall to sleep. I just want them to stay little, I remeber a quote from Finding Neverland that said "young boys should never be sent to bed... they always wake up a day older". Tonight I felt very sad about my two sweet boys getting older, the thought of not always singing to them at night and tucking them in. My children are my happy place. Even though I know that the day will come for my mothering to change face, I will be grateful for the special moments that I get with them now.
Don't you love it when you go in to get your child out of the crib after a nap and unexpectedly you walk in to see them standing up and sucking on the rail for the first time. I remember when Gav did it and Milo just did it last week for the first time. So cute! His other new trick is clapping, he even does it on cue all you have to do is say "Mi, do patty cake"
Okay so I found out today that two of my favorite things are gone forever. First I went to Good Earth to get some stuff and they told me that Fresh Food Junkies the sandwich shop inside Good Earth is closed. Are you kidding they made the best Vegitarian sandwich ever. I know I could make it at home, it was a bunch of veggies and cheese on wheat bread, but it is not the same. Which leads me to the other thing I will never get to taste again, and for the record will not ever be able to make myself. Purple Turtles coconut toppers. It is a soft serve icecream cone dipped into some sort of coconut wonder. I was craving them so badly once I called Purple Turtle at 9 in the morning and asked them to turn on the machine early so I could come in and get one. Everytime I went there I would buy and extra cup of it so that I could dip each bite of ice cream into the coconut topping. How can this be? I plan on calling Purple Turtle and dicussing this with the manager. You can't offer somthing for tons of years and suddenly take it away from the loyal patrons that consume it on a regular basis. As you can see I am very upset about it and I still need more time to heal.
