from head to toe

i honestly feel like most days i am covered in my kids. this morning as i lay in bed between the joyful giggles of my rising stars and the unpleasant smell of urine (morning diapers shouting "change me!") i thought about the days before babies.... alarm clocks that didn't say your name, but beeped & had snooze buttons. you really don't know what to expect when you become a parent. the joy is overwhelming, the pride is motivating, the exhaustion hits you like a ton of bricks, the innocence of an infant is so simply, but complicates life and quite honestly the love is absolutely consuming mind, body & soul. it is the most important job in the whole world, life depends on you... it is a calling to BE a roll model, know everything, love unconditionally, live unselfishly, partner united, and impart daily the building blocks of what it takes to grow up, as i remind myself "i am a grown up."so...i am trying to stop more often to take mental snap shots of my life because this is it & i don't want to miss it.
