we’ve finally hit that point in life that i’ve been absolutely dreeaaming of!
these two. these two sweet bunnies of mine! they are the best little pair on this planet. he worships her, and she takes the very best care of him. they melt me right into a puddle! they make me laugh. they keep me going… and on my toes! but honestly, it all makes life so. much. easier. they have each other, they love each other, and i love it.
and sure, a little sibling rivalry has started to crop up here and there. it’s only natural! it’s to be expected. i’d probably worry more if there wasn’t any, because i’d rather them go ahead and learn that conflict is part of life. [and perhaps how to handle it better than i ever did! because i was anything but patient with the smaller meddlers getting into my barbie setup, let’s just say. sorry, guys, i love you!!]
but… problem!! i still haven’t figured out how to make them stop growing. and in just one week… come next wednesday… rocco and i are going to be figuring out a whole new ballgame as we drop maddalena off for her first day of pre-k and head off to figure out what the heck to do with ourselves. i mean. whatever will we do without her??? i kind of really hate new routines, but i’m also kind of excited for all of us to spice things up a little. [also, time out, because if you had told my college self i’d one day be “spicing things up” with pre-k, i would literally have broken out into a cold sweat.]
anyway. it’s been a good summer with these two lovebugs. and i do think baby boy will savor some solo time! [after he recovers from parting ways with his bestie, that is.] and i figure, as long as i can still squeeze one of my babies into a crib and tiptoe away like old times, well, they’re still young. and so am i. amen. 🙂
