“These are the years that we don’t sleep.
The years that we hear cries in the night, and give cuddles in the darkness.
The years that we don’t sleep in the same bed, but brush hands in the hallway as we pass one another by. .
The years that are short, but the nights that are so long.
The years that we change sheets in the middle of the night and sleep with buckets next to the bed.
The years that we take turns answering the calls of the night and say, “Good job,” as the other comes back to bed. .
The years that we celebrate the nights when the kids get to sleep over at Grandma’s and for one morning we wake up feeling human again.
The years that we feed babies and change diapers and burp babies and feed babies again.
The years that we wake up weary, and maybe a little snarky, and we have to say, “I’m sorry,” as we rub our tired eyes, and choose to forgive the grumpiness once again.
The years that we cling to one another in the early morning hours, looking into each other’s tired eyes, knowing that there is on one else either of us would want to be this exhausted with.
These are the years that we sit on our couch with our coffees in the morning, and stare at the beautiful little people we created playing on the floor who make us so tired and wonder how they could wake up with so much energy.
Yes, these are the years we don’t sleep. The years they say someday we will miss. But this morning, this is the morning that I am thankful for you, my partner of musical beds and up all-nighters. This morning I’m thankful that I have you for the years we don’t sleep.” ❤️❤️ Credit: From Blacktop to Dirt Road
A lazy Saturday for us today - walking, playing at the park, hanging out with my sister and her girls - one of my favourite ways to spend a weekend. Darcey is getting taller and more grown up by the day but thankfully she still wants to sit on my knee on the swing. 💕Now we’ve got to try to get the kids to bed so we can enjoy an evening just us two sisters. #darcey#mygirl#familyweekend @kitkatjohnston
Beautiful day today for the kiddos Spring Olympics. Davis took home a first place and a second place, and although Loegan did not place in the events she wanted to, my girl still took home two first place finishes in other events. And my baby is all signed up for her first year in youth sports! #stopgrowingupsofast#stoptimeplease
