A very happy very belated birthday
The bay-bay's had a birthday party on the 4th that I forgot to write about... In my defense I worked on that party for a total of 14 hours on that day and all the days since have pretty much been a blur.
It was probably in my opinion the best birthday party we've had to date though. Something about kids, friends, and family all over your home just gives me all the feels. That and finally having the space to host our loved ones in.
Now on to the tear jerking.
How? What? When? Where? Why?!?!!?!?!? As in how are they that old? What the heck do they think they're doing? When did this happen?! Where in the parent handbook did we agree to this aging nonsense? WHYYYYYYYYYY?!?!?!?? The why is self explanatory.
I swear, I just brought them both home from the hospital. I remember every moment. All these moments that once were so HERE and now they are the past. I'm not sure when it happened. When 'babies' became a thing of the past. And actual growing, thinking, independent humans became our present.
Now I have a little girl asking me to paint her nails and running around singing "Rain, rain go away, come again another day" on this very rainy day. Who is so very aware of way too much. Who brightens my day with her hilarity and who keeps me on my toes with her questions.
And I have this big boy who is answering with his actions, all those questions I had when he was a baby being poked and prodded so many years ago. A big boy who is so fierce and works so hard to accomplish what he wants to do. A big boy who won't let anyone stop him from doing exactly what he wants to do.
I've got kids. No more babies. Kids. Time goes so fast. It really is precious.
Happy belated birthday minions. I'm really glad you both found your way out of my vagina. I really like you both. A whole crap ton.
