I.have.a.5 year old!!

I woke up this morning, and it hit me...I HAVE A 5 YEAR OLD!!

When did this happen? How did time fly by so fast? Did I not notice? I'm not 100% sure how, but all I know is I HAVE A 5 YEAR OLD!! I have a 5 year old and a six month old!

My first baby just turned 5, and my new baby is already six months old. One thing I have learned - and this didn't come easy - is that time doesn't stand still for anyone.

While I was pregnant this second time and gearing up for this Maternity Leave, I couldn't wait! I couldn't wait to stop working and be home, I couldn't wait to meet my new baby and integrate him into the family and have some extra time with my older one, and I definitely couldn't wait to tackle my Mat Leave bucket List. I knew that time files, as this is my second, and I didn't want to waste a minute of it. Although I feel as though I remember EVERY single thing that has happened in Big A's life, over the years things start to blur together. Then a photo or piece of clothing quickly brings the moments back, but there is no changing the fact that time passes. So this time while home with Lil A I decided that I wasn't going to let anything get in my way from enjoying this leave. Even though Big A is in school there are still ways to make it a memorable year. I've done a lot since Lil A was born, but not enough...So here's to enjoying the remainder of my leave.
