Food for thought...

I just had to write a few things that are on my mind today. This past weekend we cleaned out our storage unit (YUCK!) and found our MIA video camera! So we spent Sunday afternoon and Monday night viewing our new found treasures! I cannot tell you how much fun that was and our kids laughed so hard at all the funny stuff they did when they were babies! I found myself so emotional watching my kids as babies. Those who know me well know that I love nothing more than babies! I wanted so bad to be able to jump through the tv and through time just to hold and kiss my babies again. I haven't been able to get it out of my mind at honestly how scary fast time goes by! It seems like yesterday I was a kid myself. When I was 17 I got my patriarchal blessing and before I went to get it I remember thinking I hope it will tell me that I will be a Mother because I want nothing more in life than to have kids. Needless to say the blessing told me I would become a mother to sons and daughters alike. Well I don't have daughters but I have sons and a daughter who knows maybe one will slip in before I get too old! Anyway all I can do is think about my kids and those videos. If there is one thing that I could go back and change in my life it would be to refuse to work and spend every waking moment I had holding, kissing, loving, and playing with my babies! So you stay at home moms feel lucky that you have the opportunity to stay at home with your children even though I am sure at times you wish you could be somewhere else! I have no idea why I can't seem to get those videos out of my head but I really can't believe that my kids are 11, 8 , and 6 all ready and that I didn't get to spend all day everyday with them as they are growing! Now they talk back, fight, and they are too busy for mom to hold them and kiss them, but I love them more than anything and I am so blessed to be a Mother! Yes I am rambling and at this moment tears are falling down my face but I just had to write what I was feeling!

Ah Bex your so sweet. And yes there are day's where I wish more than aything to be somewhere other than home with my kids. To just get that break. But then we have the good days and I'm glad to be where I am.

I'm sorry you didn't get to stay at home with your cute kiddos. I can't imagine how hard that was to leave them and go to work everyday. But what an awesome mom you are! Your kids love you and love to be around you. My kids are sick of me and wish they could get a job and leave.
It's so a catch 22 Ya know?

Hope your doing better this evening. :):)

You are one of the sweetest people I know! Thanks for that blog...since I don't have kids yet, I think it's a good reminder for me to enjoy today and not wish and wait for the tomorrows (I'm so guilty of that!) =)

Becky that is so sweet and heartfelt. I have days where I wish I could be anywhere else but reading things like that make me see how lucky I really am. I will have to let you hold our new one when it comes to give you a baby fix.
