I hesitated and neglected to post this picture with the others but for whatever reason that doesn't matter anymore. The last couple days it has been popping up in my mind how it's the times like these that I will cherish most, the times of innocent childlike fun. Time passes so fast and before we know it these two will be in high school, college and living their own lives where days, weeks, even months may go by without even speaking to them. Often overwhelmingly and intensely challenging? Yes indeed, absolutely! All worth it? Certainly, most definitely! It's the silly, joy filled laughter (lots of laughter) that I revel in, it is simply irreplaceable. Sincere joy in the sweet smile of a little. My heart is full of love for these two littles that I once grew in my belly. Full. Of. Love. All the attitude, whining, bickering, back talking, crying and fit throwing all worth it for times like these. Times like just last night when Sage kissed his Paw Paw on his cheek and said "Tanks for bein' a good Paw Paw". Heartmelting!
