I tried counting the other day…
Since the twins were born almost six months ago, I’ve:
Been shopping by myself four times.
Seen my girlfriends as a group three times.
Attended one Wives Club event.
Had half a dozen date nights.
Been to the beach three times.
Been to the actual ocean during only one of those trips.
Hit the pool three times before it got too hot for the babies.
Made seven baby girl hair bows.
Had my hair cut once. Zero manicures or pedicures.
Missed three church services.
Read zero books & two magazines.
I’ve partaken in over two thousand diaper changes.
I’ve breastfed for a total of nearly five hundred hours.
I’ve washed somewhere around one hundred loads of cloth diapers.
It’s been absolutely worth it. No regrets. But as the leaves turn & the air cools, I can’t help but look forward with excitement. The sisters are beginning to sit up. The toddler is beginning to talk. The big boys are beginning to enjoy things like football & fashion. And besides, it’s my favorite season.
Praise the Lord and bring on the autumn.
