3 Years!?!?!?!?

I just had a convo with a co-worker who is about to become a Grandmother. It was all baby, all pregnancy and delivery.

Then it hit me. My BABY is three years old.



Looking back at pictures, I'm amazed. Time is a crazy thing and these children are like markers of time slapping you in the face.

Three years.

It's so much fun having children instead of babies. It's easier, more interactive and yes, a struggle sometimes but if you remain consistent, it's just waves of "hard" and not "always hard". We have these two other little people in our lives now and some days it feels like they just magically appeared. The struggles of babyhood were drops in the pan all things considered. In the moment they were consuming and scary...but now - "I wish I knew then what I know now!"

I've been lucky though, I have a lot of support and guidance. Mother's told me to appreciate every moment and I really do try to be aware of the small moments and things that are happening. They're just happening way to fast now!

Samantha will finish her first year of school this month and will turn 5 next month.

I can't even go there right now. That's when I started this blog!

I am the luckiest person I know :)
