Happy Mother

Twenty-six years old, with three children, in five years…

I thought the laundry would never end.

It didn’t, but it sure has slowed down.

The part that did end was the moment-to-moment delights of walking alongside three of the most amazing people I know as they found their way up, out, and into the world.

I wish I hadn’t focused so much on the laundry.

I think that’s why the prospect of being a grandmother is so exciting.

I won’t be the one facing the daily mountains of tiny socks and t-shirts…

I know how fleeting is the time of read-alouds, sing-a-long bath times, and turning stones over on the beach…

And this time, I know enough to slow things down and soak in as much as I can of enjoying my own precious children as they raise theirs.

Been there done that, then we were “Grands” and now we’ll be “Greats”. Great!

That was awesome and so true about the “grandmothering”. I just love being a Grandma! Happy Mothers Day to you and yours…
