I read an article recently, that a friend sent to me, about how people warn you that when you have a baby, or in my case babies, your life is basically over.
I am under no false pretenses that this is going to be easy or that things won’t change. We obviously won’t be able to just pick up and fly to New York in 2 hours UNLESS some major bribing of the parents and friends take place. That in itself will take more than two hours. So what’s my point? My point is everyone is different. Everyone’s situation is different and how they handle what gets thrown at them is different. So instead of people telling us to “enjoy it while we can” because when children get here we will no longer be able to go on trips, out to dinner, exercise, get a pedicure or whatever else we “won’t” be doing once they’re here.
Try telling us how much we are going to love our babies. Try saying how much joy they will bring that if we do have to “give up something” that we won’t even notice because we will be so overjoyed by their presence that we won’t even remember what we “gave up”. Try telling me that I will love my husband even more than I already do and the sweet things he is doing and saying now during this special time will pale in comparison to how he’ll be when he is with our precious girls.
No I have no idea what we’re getting into and yes I’m overwhelmed, but I promise we are ready and waiting with open arms for this new adventure that he and I will take together. The best part is we’ll have 2 little side kicks to enjoy the ride with!
