Making steps forward... and also steps back.
Playing in the sprinklers,
Bowling for free,
$1 kids movies,
Playing baseball at the park,
each day- moving forward.... having fun!
But also... its been a time that I have been stepping back and reflecting on how much the boys have grown. How they have changed.... become more independent, started to express interests and ideas that are different from mine, and really started to not need me around to hold their hand.
Every so often, as we sit together in the mornings ( I, of course, with a cup of coffee in my hands).... I try to steal a kiss, a snuggle, and maybe even a hand holding or two.
I love these days.... and hate these days.
