Do you ever have those moments in life where you question everything? You question if the choices you’re making are the right ones? The things you tell your kids, and then do they grasp a bit of what you’ve explained. You question career choices, the food you bought, the shoes you’re wearing. I mean EVERYTHING. You question your fears and worries, are they stupid? Then you question if you should be worrying over your fears and worries… yes, I am currently there. Silly all of it I know, yet, I still do it.
I have these moments all the time. I am having them frequently in this current moment in my life. I think it’s because my maternity leave is coming to an end.
I am going to be an Aunt in a 135 days. Yup, there will be another sweet bundle of joy joining our family.
I always knew I would be an Aunt one day! My sister is such an amazing person and she has always loved kids, so it was no question that she would one day be a Mother. Me, not so much, I didn’t think I would be a Mum -ever- and if I was going to have kids, I always thought it would be after my younger sister had hers. I would be calling her crying in the middle of the night telling her that I can’t get the baby to stop crying or the famous, “Is this normal…” because she would have already been through it. But I had two kids before her.
Each year we take the kid, now kids, to the Santa’s Anonymous tree. We pick off tags and Scarlett has a very specific method. She picks tags off the tree based on the colouring skills. Pretty colours. Patterns. The mind of a two year old is an interesting place. This year she got to pick two tags, one for her and one for Logan.
After Scarlett spent a solid 15 minutes looking over every tag, using her specific method of colours and patterns, finally we got two tags and off shopping we went.
