It’s no secret that having kids can be incredibly stressful – be it one or 20! But I had a moment yesterday, when I just looked at Jim and said, “Do you ever just have a day when your heart is so full of happiness?” That happened to me yesterday. (Jim’s experience was a bit different…)
Jack belly-laughed for the first time and Charlie is just a bundle of humorous energy. I put them in coordinating outfits and was complimented by random strangers on the cuteness of my littlest dark-haired man. I caught a glimpse of Charlie & Daddy outside, just walking along the sidewalk, enjoying the sunshine. We spent some time snacking on leftover brownies and letting our house just *be” for the day. I just felt so blessed.
I think about how our lives looked so different just three years ago. And while we can’t just grab dinner out whenever we want anymore and our pockets aren’t quite as lined with green, we have created so much happiness in our tiny corner of the world that I wouldn’t have it any other way.
