This is a big week for my family. My twins turn four years old this coming week. Ahhhhhhhhh. I’m sighing.
Ava and Maxwell are my youngest children and they are such a whirlwind. This is a very active phase and I’m enjoying it (and then on some days I’m not at all – - if you’re a parent you know what I mean). Still, I am awestruck. My dynamic duo are amazing together and apart. My daughter is practically my clone, full of energy, vigor and force, and my son is practically my husband’s clone, pensive, a loner and always saying the things that everyone talks about for days. My husband and I delight in watching our own relationship play out. They get along fabulously, as we do.
Last night my daughter got out of bed and as I was about to sternly say, “Get back to bed!” she ran up to me and said, “I love you, mommy.” She knows how to stop me in my tracks.
That’s what my children do to me. They stop me. I am a high energy woman. I can easily obsess about photography every day, but my children bring me back to reality, to family and to love. They breathe life into me. They frustrate me like nothing else and yet, they transform me every day. I am so grateful that they arrived four years ago.
Happy birthday my loves. You truly astound me.
