It's Like That

Have you ever had one of those dreams where you have some important event, I mean a really important event, and things keep happening to prevent you from going?  The kind of dream that by the time you get to that special dance, that party you were so excited to go to, it's just ending?  That is, if you get there at all?  You keep remembering the crackers you need to bring, the gift you still have to wrap, the underwear you forgot to put on?  By the time you've done that you realize you forgot dinner for your family! Then you get soup on your dress and need to change, and it takes another twenty minutes to find something else to wear?  You find yourself running back and forth simultaneously forgetting and remembering everything you need to do or bring while the clock ticks later....and later...panic sets in...then finally, acceptance of a situation you can't change.

Much of the time that's what it feels like getting ready to go anywhere with a baby.

Though I must add, I look at his sweet, squishy face and have no desire to wake up.

Oh. My. YES.

The good and bad thing about Emma being in school is taking her to school at noon and then picking her up from the nearby bus stop at 2:45pm. Gets me out of the house but...umm...I have to actually get out of the house. At least twice every weekday. Gah.

So true--so sweet!

Hehe. That's what I dreaded most about becoming a mom. I love to up and go, run into stores, etc. With only one child and a little planning, it's not so bad. It's even better when Scott comes on shopping trips and he hurls her in and out of the car!
Those are almost the worst kinds of dreams and I've had them a lot!

Unfortunately that's not a dream. It's my real life...and I don't even have a baby!

I've had both the dream and the reality. ;) Am I insane to admit that I want another one of those baby experiences? We need another kid around here. =P

p.s. I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU!!!!

Wow, that seems just like my real life. Don't blink! When you do, they are all grown up, married and well you are waiting for the blood test to see if you are a Gramy. It is easier to hug them when they don't live 1100 miles away. DON'T BLINK!!! Cherish every moment. I did.

That is exactly what it felt like. Now, I am sitting here counting the hours until I get to go bring my college daughter home for spring break. How did time go so fast?
