I know they say motherhood is the hardest job ever. And I agree. But I think it has less to do with the demands and more to do with experiencing the sweetness of it all, and knowing time marches on. To love someone more than you ever thought possible, all the while training them to one day leave the nest.
John Robert will be five (five!!!) in a few short weeks. Scout is looking more and more like a lady every day. And man…Millie. If I could bottle Millie at 20 months I would do it in a heartbeat. The babbling and giggling, the toddling around. All of it.
These days are long and taxing. But, these days are also some of the sweetest of my whole life. So I’m hoping to savor them. Like ice cream melting in the hot summer sun.
