You know you’re life is full of good things when you find yourself saying “I can’t wait till” all the time. It’s not that what is going on right now is bad. It’s just that there’s so much good to come.
I commented on Happy Fit Mama’s post on Monday and the the first line in my comment was “I can’t wait till…” and then it hit me. While I can’t wait till school is over in August, and I can’t wait till E is potty trained and I can’t wait see what gender Little Nuunie is. It’s important to enjoy the moments going on right now.
Take for example, Thursday morning… (BTW, before I tell you this, I have to say that I got permission from the husband to share).
E woke up just before our alarms were set to go off and instead of getting up early (which was probably the more rational thing to do), The hubs grabbed E and brought him back in bed with us. E promptly cuddled up with me, which I absolutely love, and was back to sleep or so I thought UNTIL…
S was getting comfortable and rolled over to fall back asleep for the that last luxurious 5 minutes of sleep when he might have broke a little wind. He is a man afterall, this pretty much comes with the territory right?!
Anyway, E shot up out of bed and said..”Momma, daddy pooped.” in his most desperate “Help him momma” voice. When I told E that daddy was ok, he insisted..”No Momma, daddy pooped” as if I was supposed to get up and change him. Sorry babe, I love you but no way..no how.
S and I were trying so hard not to fall off the bed laughing. Had we, we would’ve lost any chance at sleep we had.
My eyes were watering with laughter and I could feel the bed shaking from S laughing.
I know..there are a lot of moments in life that “I can’t wait to experience” but it is moments like this that remind us that even at 6 in the morning when you’re talking about poop, life can be the most rewarding. Enjoy those moments and let the “Can’t Wait Till…” moments wait till later.
Have you ever had one of “those” moments? The ones that you’ll always remember and be sure to tell your kids about when their older?
