What a wonderful day!
Mass with my loves, a day with some family, beautiful sunshine
and warm weather....
(And more sugar than you could know what to do with!)
It was a really great day!
Even more appreciated.
1 Peter 1:3
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead... (NIV)
It was a Happy Easter indeed.
But tonight, I struggled a little. Struggled because tonight is the last night I have a baby.
Tomorrow, my youngest... my little one... my BABY will turn 4.
3, well 3 is still "toddler"... still a little bit of baby.
Nope. 4 means she is no longer baby, and yes, it makes me a little sad.
Elaina tells me all the time "Mama, I'll be your baby forever"
and she snuggles up and lets me rock her whenever I need to...
I'll just have to trust her, I guess.
I guess it's appropriate that on a day of New Beginnings, I look to a new
chapter of parenting. (Pre)School age kiddos... ugh, how did this happen?
(yes, I'm being dramatic... just bear with me. Mother's are allowed
to do that now and then)
Oh... and here's a random picture of Boone. I kinda miss the old man.
