Since it’s been a little while since I’ve done a update on the girls. I thought I’d use these snapshots I took of the girls as a good excuse to fill you in.
They are absolutely loving the new house!
More room to run and play = happy little girls.
They are getting so big and into everything. But, they are so fun to watch. They are both so sweet to each other and then the next second they’re fighting over something. Typical siblings!
Bostyn is really talking well. She asks “What this Momma?” about 100 times a day. Luckily, she is also really good at saying “I lub you” , which makes up for all the questions.
Blakely is the fastest little runner and highest jumper. She loves to dance and is super entertaining. It melts me to hear her sing in the back seat….she may be famous someday!
It’s pretty awesome being a momma.
In fact, I was in the mall waiting in line to get the girls a pretzel. There were tons of teenage kids in line in front of me. I was not paying much attention to them, but did overhear a girl walk up to the group in front of me and say , ” I was over there in the other line and I felt like a mom!”. Not quite sure what the whole conversation was, ….but they all looked at me and then at each other and were noticeably embarrassed. I ignored it and acted like I didn’t hear them.
Inside I wanted to tell them, I remember being a teenager. It was pretty great, not much responsibility, lots of fun and a great social life. Staying out late on the weekends and not having to get up early the next day. Chasing boys, lots of girl talk, tons of fun! Yep, I remember those days. But trust me, as good as my high school/ college life was, it’s still pretty awesome NOW.
I love being a wife to an awesome husband and a momma to two fun 2 year olds. It’s crazy, hard, exhausting, trying and FABULOUS… I wouldn’t trade it to go back to high school.
So, teenage girls in front of me in line at the pretzel place, don’t feel embarrassed because you said you felt like a mom, …like that might offend me. It makes me smile (and giggle a bit inside), because I was you. AND I know someday you will know that it is pretty amazing to be where I am now!
