When you watch your kids achieve a milestone, it’s hard not to feel a little pride. They make me and their dad so proud.
Whether it’s first smiles, sleeping through the night, holding their own bottles, taking first steps, first words, first music lesson, first dance recital, first acting role, first date…
There’s still a moment when you remember in a flash that memory when the nurses bring your babies to you in the maternity ward. You look at your husband and say, “Holy cow, we’re parents. I hope we don’t screw this up.”
I can still remember complaining about being tired. Wondering when parenting will get easier. It doesn’t get easier, it gets different. Life just changes. And thankfully, we’ve been blessed with these amazing alien creatures.
Somehow, they’ve been surrounded by great friends, awesome teachers, and lots of loving friends. We’ve only got four more years.
Please Lord, slow it down.
