To be Needed or Un-needed that is the Question πŸ€”πŸ˜±πŸ†˜πŸ‘ΆπŸ»

Tonight at the final bbq πŸ–πŸ€of the summer for Labor Day at our club I just wanted to enjoy a sweet glass of wine🍷, take in the sunsetπŸŒ…, have some nice conversations with my friends πŸ‘­and family and watch the kids running up and rolling down the hills of the golf course in the distanceπŸ‘§πŸ½πŸ‘¦πŸΌ.


But, alas I found myself pulled away from most of that, I ate my sushi roll 🍣standing up and teetered dangerously on uneven grass in wedges too high and inappropriate to chase a 20 month old around. Trying to tip toe and maneuver down a 45 degree hill β†˜οΈwhile holding a chubby baby hand and not break my ankle was just too stressful for me. I texted Craig “SOS help me NOOOOWWW”. πŸ†˜



But this little chubby baby hand won’t be a baby for long. It struck me tonight that this little 20 month old guy is now “in the mix”. πŸ‘ΆπŸ»βž‘οΈπŸ‘¦πŸ»He was content watching his iPadπŸ“± in his high chair long enough for me to scarf down my food but no no no he ain’t no dummy. He knew all the big kids were outside having fun scattered on the golf course hills enjoying a beautiful summer “hurricane” night. πŸŽ‰


So out he went and out I went to “chase” after. πŸƒπŸ» It’s so hard when your living these moments and find them so annoying, and draining and you so badly wish your kids OLDERΒ and more independent. But then I read this article on Facebook and it was a nice reminder to enjoy all these little “dependent” moments while
you can because little chubby baby hands eventually turn to big hands that don’t need holding.πŸ‘‹πŸ½


So the article was a good reminder…this line struck a chord in me “When my kids were little, I had an urge to push them forward, to get through and be done with this phase…Rush. Rush. Rush. If I could go back, I’d slow down. Build a few more Lego castles.”

I guess that’s why I keep having babies πŸ‘ΆπŸ»because I don’t want this phase to end no matter how demanding it is, I can’t imagine life without a smiling happy baby…I know that sounds crazy!😳


Heather Christie writes “Sometimes I feel like I’ve gotten snagged in a time warp. Another summer is over. The night air is turning crisp. The soccer games have started. Dance lessons begin in two weeks. Thanksgiving will be here before we know it.
Then Christmas, lacrosse, track, recital.

And then the last summer will really, truly be here β€” the last summer that both my kids will be living at home. With each flip of the calendar page, there is an unsettling sense of an impending ending.”

  1. Having one beginning her senior year and knowing with a heavy heart that this is the last year I will have all three of my girls under one roof makes the unfinished food on my plate and warm rose left on the table while I chase my little one perfectly OK. I enjoy being needed. The days are long but the years are short! One day, all too soon, all we’ll have are our memories to look back upon while we sit and sip our drinks uninterrupted, wishing for one more day 😒
