The kids and I (by default) are on March break. We have medium-sized plans for each day—plans proportionate to their medium-sized selves, basically.
It’s a funny thing, every spring when we lighten up on the layers a little, it’s becomes so blatantly (screaming in my face) obvious just how much they have changed and grown since the previous spring. How much longer their limbs and just how (almost embarrassingly) short most of their pants actually are, is impossible to ignore. And I all of a sudden I become an annoying broken Mom record “OMG you are so big” or “STOP GROWING!!”.
Spring has always been one of my most favorite seasons, seeing things go from cold, barren and dirty. To, green lush and clean is one of the most beautiful things about living with 4 seasons. But I’m starting to re-think my love for spring, since it’s starting to feel more like a kick in the face—reminding me how quickly my littles are growing and how fleeting time really is.
This was us over the weekend, well parts of us. On Sunday stumbled upon the St.Patty’s Day parade after having brunch with friends—our ‘stumbling upon events and exciting things in the city’ luck, is out of control awesome (let me just say). Harlow has been carrying her SoYoung lunch bag, as a weekend snack and “business bag”, she packs some toys, writing materials, her cape and whatever else she things she’ll “need”. It’s adorable and a great multi purpose (lunch, snack or “business”) bag, as it keeps everything cool and it’s crazy easy for me to clean.
Okay, maybe the most random post I’ve written in a looong time. March break though it’s mushing my brain up, let’s blame it on march break—I promise this random post will be a random occurrence.
