My life is SO much fun right now! It is crazy busy for me with nearing the end of the school year at Creekside (18 days left!) and wrapping up assignments in preparation for graduation with my Masters from GCSU, that I barely have time to cook dinner most nights. In fact, Chris has asked me several times when I'm going to start cooking again... oops!
I also stay SUPER busy playing MOMMY to my favorite almost two-year old. When did that happen? You were JUST two weeks old!! I know that this time is going to fly by faster than my heart can beat, and so I GLADLY get on the floor to crawl around with you when you ask me to no matter how bad my kneeds hurt on the hardwood floor or spin around and dance to the "Spin Around" song by The Fresh Beat Band that comes on Nick Jr. tv even after a long day of allergy shots plus a shot with my epi pen. Because I know that before I know it, you'll be watching shows that Nick Jr. wouldn't dare approve and wanting to dance to songs with motions a lot worse than just spinning around... yikes!
Kiki is moving out of her dorm this weekend (again, another heart tug..... ugh! She was JUST two!!) and so Lucy and I went to hang out in her dorm room for a little bit this morning. On our way back out to the car to come back home, there was a Dad moving his daughter out, too. He commented on how adorable Lucy was and I just had to quickly dart to the car because I could feel the tears building up from my toes and choking in my throat as I thought "that's going to be Lucy before I know it..."
I am so excited to be done with my masters not just because it will be the first time that I've been DONE with school since I started Pre-K 22 years ago, but because it will give me more time with my family. I can't wait to see what life brings us and especially to see God's plan for Lucy unfold. She is so precious and I know that He is going to do GREAT things with her life. But, I want to be able to enjoy every second of it. So I'm soaking up the snuggles, the "lubb oo's", the "ee you lay-tur!'s" and the sloppy wet, grab the back of my head, smack dab on the lip kisses, and tucking them far deep into my mommy heart where I can pull them back in 14 years when she drives away by herself for the first time, in 16 years when I drop her off at college and part ways with her for a significant amount of time for the first time, or in 20 years when she marries the love of her life.
I'm a sappy ball of tears now. But I wouldn't have it any other way!
