And to top it all off, it was MY BIRTHDAY WEEK. Okay here is a little inside fact. I am a birthday week person. The week of my birthday is a special one.... in my eyes however. And this little munchkin has definitely shown me that it is NOT about me anymore. I have not even thought about my birthday but more of making my girl happy and better! Therefore, my DRAMA QUEEN has shown me that life changes. You have kids and it is about them, but...
Friday I said hello to 29! The last year of my 20's...What do we have in store!
We enjoyed a nice dinner, for my birthday, at LaFonda with some of our closest friends.... So happy they all came
Then the joy of MY BIRTHDAY FRIDAY was quickly shattered with the news of the Connecticut Shooting. I wanted to hold Cohen and Sawyer and never let them go. My heart ached for those parents and children. The simple act of bringing your child to school would never be the same.
We get so caught up in our phones, computers. etc we miss out on so many moments. I for one, know that sometimes I am playing on my phone when I could be playing with my kids. It's sad to know that someone's misfortune made me realize so much.
So from now on when you want to pick up your phone to check facebook, pick up your child instead. When you want to open the computer to play on pinterest, play with your child instead.
I know I will.
Yes, I will still enjoy these little pleasures but not as much as I often find myself doing.
So hold onto your loved ones a little bit tighter. Tell them you love them a few more times. I know I will.
