The Moments You Stop and Think

Sometimes, during a rare moment, I'll look over at Everett and think, "what happened? How did I get so lucky to have this kid in my life? When did he grow up to be a kid, and no longer my little baby? How did I get so lucky to have a kid like this?" He reminds me so often about what's important in life and how to have real fun. I forget often... and he reminds me... often. Most of the time I feel less like a Mom and more like a kid again. It's amazing how many experiences I had as a kid that I can have all over again with this kid. He's like a blank canvas and every experience and memory we make together, we're making his life's childhood memories. It's pretty amazing.
But I can't help think, how did that all happen so fast. When did I become not a kid anymore and then suddenly have one of my own? It seems like not long ago at all that we were just young, irresponsible kids ourselves and now, I look over and find myself in a home of my own, almost just as wrestles as I was when I was a kid, but having the two people with me that mean the most in my life, and it feels complete. There's just no words to describe the love I feel and want to constantly show the two loves of my life and I feel quite lucky that we get to fill our whole house with the love we have for each other. I'm quite blessed.
