A sluggish morning -- 14 Days to go

I realize there's only two more weeks left.

I realize otherwise laid-back mornings will soon turn to chaos right before my eyes.

I realize I'll be on a mission to get out the door, to not forget anything, to not be late for work, to kiss them too much and hug them too tight.

I realize the impact Catching a Shooting Star has on a life, let alone two little lives.

I realize it all.

That's why I'm trying to savor this life as it is right now. I'm trying to embrace the manic days of Terrible Twos and eat up every ounce of sunshine and smile and giggle I can get.

It's not really anything different, except everything is changing and my heart is aflutter, and there's a lump forming in my throat and the sleepless nights are coming and there's tears dripping from my eyes right this second.

Rough waters ahead, passengers. Rough, indeed.

Breakfast -- al fresco.

Menu:

Pumpkin French Toast
Grapes
Milk
Sausage links








But, the meal was hardly eaten, foiling yet another master plan of mine to relish these last slow mornings.

The real highlight were the slow eaters at the neighboring table.

My heart flip-flops for you. Throw away your plans and throw yourself into the two weeks. But remember, it's a new beginning, not an ending.

Try to see this as a new adventure and not the ending of an old. New opportunities, new challenges, but most importantly a new adventure..

My thoughts are with you--change is never easy, even when it's good. I know your blogging about this experience, this transition will be so beneficial for other moms.
Blessings!

*Hugs* A new life chapter. I wish you the very best!

Mmm. Pumpkin french toast. :-)
I wonder if they are maybe feeling your anxiousness? It's probably hard not to notice mommy can't stop kissing, hugging and staring...lol.
Change does have a way of making us hold on a bit tighter, doesn't it?

What wonderful photos.

It's hard to sty in the moment, but you seem as though you are thoroughly there and enjoying it all immensely.

Hi! I'm over from Momma Bean's place. Sounds like a lovely morning, if not quite as slow as you might have liked it. I'm looking forward to reading more.

Hey Shawn

Never had pumpkin toast before... interesting.

I will be thinking about you over the next few weeks... change is an interesting thing.

Momma Bean said...

Oh, what a change it will be. My heart goes out to you. But here's a little something that will make it okay. When you come home everyday, it'll be like they haven't seen you in years. It's the most wonderful part of my day, when they scream my name and rush to me full of hugs and kisses.

And then then will be now, and there you'll be, figuring it out.

What an honest post. I'm here with you, cheering you on. I know you'll savor everything about these two weeks, then you'll find a whole arena of new stimulation and thought. It will be a good thing.

Don't mourn early.
