For the last few years, April is the month where I can sit back and sigh with huge relief. It’s the month after my kid’s birthday parties – Alyssa in February and Aidan in March.
Then, April is my birthday month – which now doesn’t pretty much mean anything from a celebratory point of view. In fact, it’s just a reminder that I’m just getting older!
The fact that my kids have just reached another age milestone is super scary to think about!
Alyssa is an independent 4-year-old who is completely adamant that she is going to be a Doctor one day. Aidan has gone from complete Mommy’s boy to a confident little explorer, ready to take on the world.
I must admit that I’m finding it hard to come to terms with the thought that in all likelihood, I will never have my own little newborn baby to cuddle and snuggle with again. I literally cannot control my ovaries when I see a cute little newborn and I just feel this strong urge to want to cuddle!
That feeling of having a newborn in the house is like falling in love all over again. Don’t get me wrong, those days with having a baby, let alone 2 very young kids was not always easy, but like so many people said during that time “This too shall pass”
And now it has passed… and I miss that very exhausting time!
Not that I don’t enjoy my kids at this stage, of course, I do – it’s just bittersweet knowing that they will never be as little as they are today. This is LEGIT the hardest part of parenting.
This is why I love having a blog. It allows me to document my special memories and almost “feel those feels” all over again when I read old posts and look at pictures of my kids.
Thus far I’ve got to document so many special moments.
My pregnancy memories
My birth experiences
Special Family Outings
And so much more!
Just looking at these makes me very excited about the years to come and to make even more memories with my little family. Thank you Pampers for allowing me the pleasure of reminiscing in this series.
