Another Mushy Mother Moment

Dear Blog,

I came across this video on Ohdeedoh. I thought it was going to be a tragic story that would pull at my heart strings. It isn't about a tragedy yet it pulled at me nonetheless. If you have already seen this video maybe it will be a good reminder.

I always hear people say to enjoy your baby now because they grow up so fast. I believe them so I honestly try to step back and enjoy the moment each time I find myself daydreaming about the future. Katrina (the woman in the video) wrote this so well that I feel I know exactly how she feels, though I'm only at the very beginning of motherhood. I sometimes can't believe that I am now the adult raising a family. My young life has gone by so fast and each year seems to go by faster than the last. So I can only imagine that time will continue to speed up (my previous post is a good example) and Juniper will be where I am now before I know it.

With that being said, I think I will now go watch Juniper sleep just to be sure I don't miss her teenage years.
