As Seen In My Life: Thoughts at O’dark Thirty…


You know, I love this child. But I have moments, like right now at 4 am when I’m in pain and can’t sleep in my own bed because there is a toddler in there who is taking over the world one bed at a time, when I wonder what the heck was I thinking?  It is times like these at o’dark thirty that I remember my life when I was not a parent with great fondness.  You know, the sleeping all night, all the extra disposable income, the peace and quiet.

But then, I think about that face above and I can’t imagine my life without him. Feet in back, sleepless nights, no money having and all.

Sigh. I love that boy.

    I’m visiting from SITS! What a sweet little boy you have! Enjoy all those moments…the good, the bad, and the ugly. Before you know it, he’ll be grown and off to chase his own dreams. It goes by so FAST!

    Ah yes. I just read that motherhood is the only place where you experience both heaven and hell at the same time! He is a cutie! (My babies are 18 and 21 now! And still cuties!) Stopped by from SITS today.

    I think we all, as parents, can relate to this. Before I had kids, I remember asking a friend of mine who became a mom at 21 whether she regretted having to make, at such a young age, all the sacrifices that come with children. She told me she could never regret the sacrifices because the cost of her children made it all worth it. I didn’t get what she meant then, I didn’t really believe her then, but now I do. It’s amazing how our children can change our priorities and make us forget about what we lost and instead focus on the beautiful faces we’ve gained.

      This is sooo true! I have moments when I am sooo soo frustrated and down, but then, Pookah says “Mommy was wong” in his toddler speak, and I can’t be upset or unhappy when he kisses my cheek and asks for a hug. Sigh.
