When the boys seen their uniforms they just had to try them on, we have been talking about soccer for weeks! They picked which number they wanted, and grinned from ear to ear! I still cannot believe I do not have babies anymore. I don't even have toddlers! They are growing faster than the speed of light, and I am so fearful that if I blink, I will miss it all.
Last night, like every night, my beautiful little red headed boy would not let me leave his bed. He wanted cuddles, and it was obvious I wasn't going anywhere despite the long list of household chores I had lingering from the weekend. So I didn't go anywhere. I sucked up the OCD in me and I just cuddled! It was wonderful. For myself, I find it hard to stop and take time to enjoy them when they are little. Im so busy IN the busy, that I forget that they wont always be here. They wont always be this age! Watching them today in their soccer uniforms, prouder than proud, quickly reminded me of this!
While I try to balance my husband, children, work, blog designing, housework, my music and enjoying some fun, I try to remember what the word tells me about my children. They do not belong to me in the first place, they are a gift from God and belong to him! And secondly, just how important it is to raise them up in Gods word and house!
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
My boys are awesome. NO, they are amazing, smart, handsome, beautiful little boys! I would not trade them for anything! As crazy as life gets, I need to remember to stop, take the time needed and invest in these little souls. They grow so, SO fast, and I have such a short time to love on them before they decide that mommy is no longer "cool". So tonight, while my boys still let me cuddle them, I am going to do just that! Enjoy the littles, watch some Mega Mind and eat some popcorn! Cause tomorrow, they wont be big boys, they'll turn into young men!
(They picked their numbers, hence their little fingers :)
