Will they ever look at the camera at the same time?
Love, love, love all THREE of my boys. Yesterday was Charlie's birthday so Ian and I baked some chocolate cupcakes. Ian was so proud of himself. Charlie loved them.
When we were waiting for Ian to come home (2 1/2 years ago), I couldn't imagine actually being someones mommy. Is that weird? I knew I wanted children, I was so in love with Ian that it was insane...but thinking about being a mommy was just more than I could imagine. Now, with 2 little ones running around....I can't imagine NOT being a mommy. While it has it's challenges and I don't think I'll ever go to the bathroom alone for several more years....honestly....it's the best thing I've ever done. When I'm with my boys, all is well....crazy...but well. I remember a friend of mine from church telling me that my priorities would change when Ian came home. I thought..."well yeah..but my life won't change". Boy...was she ever right. My priorities have turned completely around....especially now that Drew has come home. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy my "alone" time and time with my girlfriends...but I think I'm cut out to be someones mommy.
What I've realized though, is I still need to make time to be a wife. Charlie and I have to make a real effort for date nights. We haven't had one since Drew's been home (I'm not quite ready yet)...but we will soon. I miss my alone time with Charlie. I'm sappy today...what's up with that? I think I'm just in love with my 3 boys!!!
