Whenever I am at my wits end, whether it seems that everything is falling apart, my son is having a melt down, or my 8 month old daughter is STILL not sleeping through the night, I do something kind of silly. I sing this song (LOUDLY if I need to drown out other noises, or as a lullaby if it’s 3am) and I remind myself that someday, I WILL MISS THIS! I will miss all of it and wish to have it back if only for a day. I will wish for my daughter to need me in the middle of the night. I will miss my snotty nose 2 year old wiping his snot on my shirt crying into my sleeve begging me to hold him. I will miss the messes, tripping over toys in the bathtub, and all of the things that slowly drive me insane on a day to day work at home mom basis!
I live by these mottos (or I TRY to): Don’t blink. It won’t be like this for long. Take mental photos. All of these things help keep me in check and remind me that these really are the best days of my life
This print is in my house and I hope you will all enjoy it, even if just virtually, as a reminder that this is temporary. Tomorrow is only a day away… but don’t wish away today with the ones you love most!
