Do You Ever Wish You Could Freeze Time?

I do.  I write about this often on my blog.  My babies are just growing way to fast.  I joke with my boys that I want to just squish them back down and make them stop getting bigger.  Of course I’m just teasing.  So far I’ve immensely enjoyed each phase of my children’s lives.  But there are moments I wish I could freeze that literally bring tears my eyes when I think about the fact that someday all of this will be gone.

I typically get up early in the morning and head down to my studio to get some work done at my computer before my crew wakes up.  Some time around 7:00am (or earlier!) I start to hear that familiar pitter patter of tiny feet.  Ok, they aren’t so tiny any more and sometimes it sounds more like an elephant stampede but I think you get my point.  The first to make their way down to me today was my three year old Ezra.  He dressed himself for bed last night.  He sported a bright red long sleeve jammie top covered in footballs, basketballs, soccer balls etc paired with dark blue plaid Scooby-Do jammie bottoms.  His hair stuck up straight and he had a grin from ear to ear.  The first words out of his mouth were… “I want to snuggle with you Mommy.”  So snuggle we did.

I asked him how he was… GREAT!  I asked him how he slept… GREAT! I asked him what kind of day we were going to have…. GREAT!  He and his brother remind me of Tony the Tiger with all their GGGRRRREEEAAATTTSSS!!!  And that was that!  He scampered off and the moment was over.

What will I do when these moments are no more?  When they have grown and gone?  When it is just me and my husband in this big empty house?
