I was at the park the other day, pushing Trevor on a swing. There was a couple next to me with a baby that looked to be 8 or 9 months, maybe even younger, and he was very obviously their first child. They were totally enamored with him, and they were just fascinated with him on the swing. (The baby was adorable, and he was cracking up.) And I was very aware I was standing there pushing my second, thinking about what I was going to do after they went to bed that night and what movie to watch.

I'm in absolutely no way mocking the parents who were next to me; instead, it really took me back. I remember those days of thinking every last thing Toby did was new and exciting and cause for pulling out the camera. I'm very glad that the days of being a new parent are over- they were hard and I did not enjoy the infant stage. But watching this couple with their baby made me remember that first year very fondly, and all the wonderful moments in it.

Now to go wake up my own little hellions :)

All this talk of childrens is making my uterus whiny. Also, after this job, nothing my future theoretical child does will throw me for a loop.

Enjoy your day
