The years speed by as the days drag on.
Does this ring true for any of you mothers?
I find that each year zips by at warp speed but some days tick-tock by at a super slow rate.
As I sat upstairs in our playroom last night, I gazed at my three boys in awe & wonder. They are growing. No matter what I do or try to do, I can not slow down time. I am filled with both excitement and ache.
It is amazing to compare my one year to his older brother who is just about coming in at six and a half. In that five year gap so much has taken and will take place. Little N will soon learn to walk. Talk. Run. Climb. Jump. Color. Draw. Write. Sing. Read. He will grow from baby to toddler to little boy to big boy. And I get to watch each of their lives unfold. The possibilities are endless. It is magical. The only limitations they have are the ones that I set. A bit scary. I don't want to hold them back but at the same time how do I let them go?
Motherhood is something you can't quite describe to another.
It must be felt.
I love being a mom of boys. To know that I took part in their creation is humbling. I count my blessing each night as I lay my head to rest. Believe me, I know I am lucky.
What does motherhood mean to you?
