This year, the holidays knocked me out. I’m still trying to recover. Jaxson’s birthday is mid-January and I’m recovering from that too. Everyone says that kids grow up too fast. I didn’t appreciate that statement until now. I hate that my baby is two years old. I love watching him grow bigger, learn new things, and develop new skills; but I also want him to be 2 months old again. I want to hold him in arms for hours and not fill like my arms are going to die within the first two minutes.
With the new year started, I am once again reminded that time is going too fast and that I need to pause, live in the moment, and enjoy my boys. In this episode of parental confessions we’re talking about the stress from the holidays, how I have to pull myself together during my kid’s birthdays, and how the new year keep things into perspective for us. These are our confessions. How do you relate?
