When you have children everyone tells you to enjoy it; especially while they are young because it goes by so fast. You think, yeah that's what everyone says. And you leave it at that, because honestly you can't fully comprehend their experience you've just begun your journey in parenthood.
I had Cyrus when I was 22, becoming a mother was life altering. I went from taking care of myself to having an infant that depended on me 24/7. In the hospital I had this beautiful, amazing little baby that I couldn't have been more in love with. But when it was time to go home I remember thinking, I can't believe they are just letting me leave with this little baby, I have no idea what I am doing!
Eventually we figured it out and I've learned just as Cy grows and experiences more so will I as a mother. And the same goes with Sage. Although I do have some experience now, you learn that the second child is always a step ahead of you and picks up on things a bit faster with someone to look up too.
It doesn't matter how clean this house is, how much money we have, how tired or busy we get. Our boys will remember what we made of it and how we spent it with them.
Some day I'll be reliving these moments over and over again in my head, looking back at all the times we had with our boys. We laughed and smiled tonight while they took turns screaming at the top of their lungs while they chased each other around the living room. Some day they'll be grown and our house will be quite.
Some day we'll look back and say wow, we're so glad we enjoyed it. Because it did go by too fast.
