I love Saturdays. So much. I’m a working mom (meaning I work out of the home. Of course all moms are working moms) and my day starts at 5:00 (well, my day starts at 3:30 am, but my work day starts at 5:00). That means my husband has morning duty to get the kids ready for school/day care. Saturdays I like to ease into my morning with coffee and the DVR before everyone else gets up, then the kids usually start getting up around 7 or 7:30 and then our loud, chaotic day ensues! But I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Weekday mornings, the kids eat oatmeal or Lucky Charms for breakfast. I like to try to make weekend morning breakfasts a bit more special. Most of the time, they request Mickey waffles.
These two are growing right before my eyes. So fast I can’t believe it sometimes. Didn’t I just bring them home from the hospital? Seems like it. Babies definitely don’t keep.
Our schedules are so busy so anytime I can spend just sitting and enjoying each other’s company is a chance I will jump at. If it takes a few minutes to make the waffles so they can be Mickey shaped, I’ll do it to see the smiles on their cute little faces.
I don’t believe in the adage “cherish every moment” that everyone likes to tell young parents, because I don’t believe you have to. But these moments? Yes, these I will cherish.
