Precious Time


Tomorrow begins my last week of maternity leave. I can't believe how quickly time has gone by. I am not ready to go back to work. I have to go back and it will be ok, but I will be sad to leave my short time as a stay at home mom behind. I will miss my little guy so much. So very much.

As I reflect on my short time left at home, I think

My house is a mess.
My to do list is long.
I haven't finished his room.
I made little progress on my recent plan to switch Shawn's work space mess with my craft room.
His blanket is not done.
The two boxes full of projects for my classroom barely got touched.
I haven't scrapped a single baby picture, though I've taken a million of them.

but, none of that matters. I know the time I spent holding and cuddling and playing were well worth it. I'll never get those tiny baby days back and I'm glad I enjoyed them. I'm so thankful I've had 3 months of full time Aiden.

We have 7 more days together before I go back to work and though my week is filling up fast, you can bet I'll be every free minute cuddling and playing and soaking it all up.

I can't imagine how hard those days away are going to be. I'll be thinking of you and praying for you!! Enjoy every second of this last week ... the rest will all still be there later.

XOXO!!

Sniff, sniff. My heart breaks a tiny bit for you. I know how it goes. No fun.
