The Moments We Wait For


This past week was spring break. We decided to make it pretty low key. Well as low key as it can be with four daughters and a crazy puppy in the house.

The one exciting thing we did is venture out to see a movie. We do not do this often, it is a real treat. I even splurged for the new movie theater close to our house with comfy seats, using a few free passes we got for Christmas. The Movie we saw was Cinderella. We chose to see it right after I had rushed home from the grocery store, so the girls were starving. We quickly visited a drive through and decided to save the frosties we got for a yummy illegal movie treat.

We ran into the theater and bought our tickets, happy to see that we had not missed the long awaited Frozen short before the movie.

With the lights down and the movie starting I could not help but look over at my girls and think to myself that these are the moments you think about while snuggling your fresh newborn at the hospital.

You think about all the fun things you are going to take your kids too and all the things you want to teach them.

While there is nothing like that newborn bliss, one can not help but picture future Zoo adventures, Showing your child the ocean for the first time and of course the joy of enjoying a chick flick together.

There are millions of articles about savoring that newborn time and never wishing it away, but the future stuff you get to do with your kids as they grow and learn definitely does not suck.

    I miss having a baby in the house. I can’t have any more and my youngest is almost 4. They grow up so fast. Cherish those moments.
