Cherishing the Inbetweens

The title of my blog is about the inbetweens. Inbetweens are those moments between the hustle and bustle of life that make life worth living.

I'm talking about when you're running late dropping your kid off at preschool while also trying to get to work on time. You hurriedly drop him off and head towards the door when you hear a familiar voice across the playground saying, "Mom! I love you!" followed with a smile, wave, and blown kiss.

Or rushing through listening to the voicemails you missed while at a work meeting and after several messages a tiny voice that belongs to your baby girl comes on saying hi over and over again.

Or when you've made another late night trip to the store because it's the only free time you've had and you're tired and crabby and thinking of all the things you still have to do before going to bed. All of a sudden you walk out the doors and it is snowing the first snow of the season. You look up into the dark sky and feel all of those beautiful white flakes falling across your cheeks. For that single moment all is right in the world.

Those, my friends, are the inbetweens. Sure, we all love a good birthday party or a school play, but those moments that happen unexpectedly when you've had a stressful day and just want to throw in the towel those are what keeps you going. Cherish those inbetweens.

My eggo is preggo :o)

Well, Aiden is going to be a big brother. I can't believe it! It was a long wait, but the time is here. It has me thinking about what kind of brother Aiden will be. I told him I had a baby in my belly, and he kissed it three times. I'm sure he has no idea what that means, but it was super cute nonetheless. Aiden is so affectionate. I just know he will love being a big brother.

I wonder if he or she will be an easy going infant and rambunctious toddler (like Aiden) or the other way around. I've always wanted a little girl, but I'm ok if it's another boy. I'll already have three years experience of being a mama of a boy before this little one comes. What scares me is being a mama of two. :o) Aiden is my little man. He shows me how much he loves me every day. He certainly tests my patience often, but he makes up for that with his absolute cuteness!

There has never been nor will there ever be anything quite so special as the
love between a mother and son.
