Do you ever wish you could slow down the clock a bit?
I feel like I’ve lived much of my life wishing the time away. I used to always live my life looking forward to the next exciting thing: weekends, Christmas, vacations, nights out, babies being born…
But now, it feels like time is moving too quickly and I wish there was a way to slow it down! I feel like I’m in a good place right now and it would be amazing if I could hit a “pause” button so that we could have some more time to just enjoy it.
Since I can’t do that, I’m just trying my best to take everything in and enjoy every moment. The problem with that? There are a lot of little tasks that don’t get done. For example, my house is a disaster. As I type this, I’m looking at the dust that is covering just about everything. There are crumbs on the counter and, as always, a huge pile of laundry to fold. But, since the summer is so short, I’d rather go for a walk with my baby than do housework. So, the dirt will remain for now.
I also have lots of things I’ve been wanting to write about. Bo is growing and developing so much and I feel like I need to write it all down so I don’t forget. We actually got an eight-hour stretch of sleep the other night (yep, eight hours!!) and he’s working so hard at rolling from his back to his front. He is happy and smiley and so good-natured. He demands so little attention (which means his older brother doesn’t have to give up being the centre of attention, which he has grown so used to!) and I truly enjoy spending time with him.
Father’s Day has come and gone. I didn’t even get a chance to acknowledge my husband here. He’s such a great dad. Littleman worships him and is such a daddy’s boy. I love watching how much the boys love their daddy.
I apologize for the scattered thoughts today but my mind is running in a million directions and I feel like I’ve been away from the computer for too long. I’m still reading blogs everyday but writing posts from my phone during Bo’s feeds is getting harder as he gets bigger. He eats so quickly and is ready to move on to another activity before I’m done so I find I end up with a bunch of partial posts that never get finished.
So, before this becomes another unfinished post, I will push the “play” button and keep moving.
