But on to my REAL life ... the sun came out yesterday and we ventured to the park. I was a "single" mom for the day and night - and that meant planning ahead and coming up with fun things to do. I sure love our boys ... and time spent together is pretty great - even when it's exhausting.
And today? Well - it was the first day of Tias' second year of preschool. More like an orientation, a getting together and reminding all of us moms how things work. A refresher *grin*. And now we're ready for the school year.
And the rest of today? Spent outside, laughing and creating memories. And me trying to save the moments forever with my camera. Being a mom is so bitter-sweet. The guilt I feel when I choose to do something other than being with them. The guilt of dreaming of them being older and less reliant on me and being able to be more selfish with my time - all the while praying that they'll stay this way forever. The way they giggle, and make up silly words. The way their feet look when they refuse to wear their shoes outside. The way their hair smells when they come for a close hug. Oh how I love them.
