Energizer Bunny's Mommy Reports: Have you noticed?

Jul 17, 2009

Have you noticed?

Have you noticed....

When your baby is born you love holding and cuddling her but more than anything you just can't wait to have her toddling around?


Once she's able to hold onto things and move around with a little help, you can't wait to see her move around independently?


Now that your baby is a little girl who walks, jumps, skips, hops and runs all over the place.......don't you wish she could go back to being the 'in one place only' little baby ?


Have you noticed....

When your little girl is awake, full of beans and all set for a new adventure every moment, you really wish she would fall asleep?


And when she is asleep...you really wish she would get up and bring life into your 'now quiet' world?


Have you noticed....

When your little one started speaking her own little language, you really wished she would be able to communicate in a language everyone could understand?


Now that she is a little chatterbox and the official family newspaper (eek!)...don't you wish there could be more moments like Zzzzzzz?


Have you noticed....

It's not always the best thing to have your kids feed themselves?


Have you noticed....

Sometimes helping is not always helpful? (Especially when you notice you have more dirt piles scattered around the house!)


Have you noticed....

If it had not been for our little treasures, our lives would not be complete nor would every moment be filled with excitement?

Yes there are those "aaaaaargh" tantrum days and "I don't want to eat" days (I know there are more but lets not get ourselves stressed!) but they're only tiny specks in the beautiful masterpiece memories our children create for us.

Bunny girl is our gift from Heaven (*), our special prayed for child. True some days are more tiring and grueling than others but honest to God, I wouldn't trade being a parent for anything in the world....no matter what craziness lies in store for me tomorrow!!


* Psalm 127:3 (Message Bible version)-
"Don't you see that children are
God's best gift? The fruit of the womb his generous legacy? "

I love it when my kids "help". The job usually takes twice as long. Oh well, they feel so proud when they complete a chore. They'll get over it soon enough so I'll enjoy while I can.

Have a good Saturday Sharefest

What a beautiful post. I've notices all of the above with my little dude. And it's all WONDERFUL!

Amen to that! I wouldn't trade my two boys who can create a tornado effect in their room in less than two minutes for anything in the world.

I fully agree, there's nothing in the world like parenthood, and there are really no words to describe it - but you did a darn good job!

Amen. It's so wonderful to see them grow, but bittersweet at the same time. They are little for such a short time. This is a beautiful post.

Yes, I have noticed those things, too. And many more...

Happy SITS day.

You know....I'm not one of those moms who are always wishing for the other thing. I enjoy every moment while I'm in it. Not to say I never wish it was nap time...but when they are being cuddled in my arms, I DONT wish they were walking...and when they are babbling I'm not wishing they were talking. I just enjoy it...knowing that time goes too quickly.

I love this post. I have totally said "I can't wait until he's X, Y, or Z" and some days, I just want my little snuggly baby back. But that doesn't mean that I'm not enjoying him now, where he is. I love my little guy. Thanks for the post!

Oh I love it! You're so right. This is a much nicer description of my fave saying...

You spend the first 2 years teaching them to walk and talk and the next 16 telling them to sit down and shut up.

But enjoy it while you can.

Happy SITS

LOL! "Full of beans!" I say that all the time about my son(age 4) and he is! I was nodding my head yes as I read each thing. So true.

That's very sweet! I'm not a mommy, but I am an auntie and I can relate a TINY, TINY bit to this.
