First of all, don't fear! I will post the recipe for the Strawberry Sprite Cake soon! It is SUPER easy and tasty! Look for it soon.
I am feeling nostalgic today.
Probably because I have been with Andrew 24-7 for almost two weeks (with short breaks) and am About. To. Wring. His. Neck.
So I started trying to put things in perspective and thought about how he is just about 3 1/2 years old, and Benjamin is almost 1 1/2 years old.
Six months of time.
Over and over.
Here is a snapshot of my life as a mother, starting at the very beginning.
Six months at a time.
(Or something like that. Sometimes five or eight. But roughly half a year.)
October 2005--Expecting Andrew (Blissfully unaware)
March 2006--Newborn Andrew (Calm before the storm)
October 2006--Andrew's first Halloween
May 2007--Not realizing how easy life is with only one kid
September 2007--First carousel ride (I'm expecting Benjamin.)
April 2008--Two brothers (Let the real insanity begin!)
October 2008--Halloween (post-heart operation)
March 2009--Hanging out in the yard (Finally starting to get in the groove.)
September 2009--My silly boys and me (Expecting baby #3)
In roughly another six months, I will have a four-year-old son, a two-year-old son, and a newborn Katherine or Thomas.
Lots more love in my heart.
And fewer brain cells on which to operate.
