I can't believe it's already mid July. The countdown is on for me and everyday I have to remind myself that it will be okay.
Don't get me wrong. I love my job and it brings me so much joy to work with children. But I also love my other job as Mommy and wife.
Thanks to several things, not the least of which was the help and patience of an amazing family that became our pseudo family I was able to stay home this year. I got 365 days of almost one on one time with Riley and 10 months to simply enjoy being pregnant with Camden.
365 days is a long time. I thought it would be enough time.
And in some ways it is and in others, well its never enough.
I'm going to look on the bright side though. I got 365 days! One year full of love, hugs, giggles, kisses, absolute joy (and yes mind numbing frustration too) that I know some mothers will never get.
One blissful year with this little girl who is oblivious to the fact that we don't have another year like this was.
Mostly because she's too busy doing exactly what you're supposed to do in the summer.
Which is keeping cool in the blazing heat.
I'm working on keeping my "cool" too and enjoying these days we have. And hoping that she'll remember at least some of our special year together.
