Life races along and somewhere between busting my ass in my office all day and ordering hungry lunatics pizza for dinner it occurred to me that I AM GOING TO MISS THESE TWO LADIES when they are grown. Immensely. Heart-breakingly so. The screaming and all. Just thinking about it made my eyes well up DURING DORA. I wish I could preserve it all. Just how they are right now. Sparkling. So when they are in their thirties I could somehow communicate just how magical they always were. Videos + photos + all the great memory-making ways of the world could not possibly relay the story I feel in my heart. It is overwhelming. I needed Dan to be there so that I could look over and say with my eyes "THEY ARE SO AWESOME". Like I do so often he just rolls his eyes at me now. He knows. He knows.
Today: I am off to check in with Baby3, offer up my gratitude, and get groceries. Hopefully all three of those things will go well so that we can celebrate by making coconut cookies and colouring our hearts out.
Big, big, big Happy Birthday Grandpa Ken!
