You’re Gonna Miss This…..

I had just fed two kids, complaints about the rice from one, the other flings it to the floor. Bath time ensues and cup after cup is poured to the floor by Isaac so I mop up the mess and hang the rug. I look like I went through a sprinkler from the aftermath. Then there is a naked baby running with a toothbrush in his mouth and a truck in hand. The floor is littered with legos, I haven’t finished dinner for Matt or I yet and the noise is never ending. But then I hear this song playing from my computer,

You’re gonna miss this
You’re gonna want this back
You’re gonna wish these days hadn’t gone by so fast
These Are Some Good Times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you’re gonna miss this

I can’t help but smile at the zoo that is my night (or life really) and the delight on the faces of my sweet kids. I just stand back and watch one naked boy run about and a sweet girl run around making roaring sounds at her brother. My heart is full and I know that yes, I’m gonna miss this and these days go by so fast.

I stand in the middle of the kitchen loving the moment only to be driven from my serene state by the shrieking of Jenna because Isaac has a huge handful of hair in hand. Yes, these days go by so fast but enough sappy seconds, there is work to be done.

  1. AAAGH – my life exactly! So chaotic, loud, messy, tiring. But also sweet and precious and just what I always wanted. Hard to reconcile the feelings sometimes.
