I used to be so good with numbers - I could whip up what anything was going to cost including taxes - in a heart beat. AND problem solving was fun for me - I actually enjoyed it ( my brother sent me a test once that my nephew had passed - making him almost a Savant - he declared - and I solved it in under 2 minutes ) So you see when I tell you I'm a genius it's not just empty bragging LMHO.................
(I sent him a text back saying he'd better check the source of that test btw.)
So WHY am I having such a difficult time with THIS equation?
IT CAN'T BE 55 - can it?
No - it absolutely can't be.
I can't be turning 55 in 3 short weeks?
I'm the Mom of these little guys after all
and it doesn't matter if they've gotten a little itsy bitsy bit taller - this is how I still see them deep in my heart - and if that's how they are to me - and I had them in my early 20's then you can see how the numbers don't add up, right?
I want to pull them out of those photos - and read them Narnia all over again
I want to chase them around the house playing hide and seek
I want to make trees in the mud ( brocolli and gravy ) and Teddies on a cloud ( teddy cookies on vanilla ice cream )
I want to dance with them - and sing with them - and I want to see those eyes open as wide as possible when they discover that Rudolph left poop on the front lawn ( oreo cookies broken up )
I want to see them fresh out of their baths in their jammies watching Care Bears.
I want to hoist them up on my back at bed time and jump up and down neighing or snorting or doing whatever animal they require me to be
I want it back - because it was only yesterday after all.................
And if it was yesterday - then I'm only 29 years old -
Forget Math - I'll take History any day ( or my version of it anyway )
Ashley - Lindsay - Gordie -
No creation I can ever come up with in this life time can ever compare.......................
And the next time I complain about my body - I have to remember that this is the body that created them and I will be eternally grateful to it.
They are the three hearts on the watermarks on all my photos
p.s. most of you know I have twin girls ( ladies now I suppose - even though I'm only 29 ) - want to see a photo of twin boys that'll melt your heart away?
Oh Megan - I could stare at this photo forever !!!
OUR PINTERESTING FAMILY
Enjoy every single moment - because before you know it they'll be grown - and you'll be as confused as I am now
Have a wonderful day everyone.
Don't let it go by too fast!
