With only a few short weeks (actually only 2!) of summer break, I find myself feeling short-changed with the time I was able to spend with Vinny and Mia. I remember when May hit and I was so excited to plan out a bucket list of summer adventures we were going to go on. But with work, blogging, unexpected life changes, etc., I’m now looking at the first day of August on the calendar and feeling like I haven’t even scratched the surface of that list.
I may sound super dramatic, but I truly cherish these summers with my babies. Now don’t get me wrong, there are hectic days when I think to myself, good Lord when is school gonna start again?! But I know summer after summer, they’ll grow and get older and not want to hang with their mama anymore. So I’m going to be silly, get dirty, let myself be little again for the remainder of our sunny school-less days together. I saw a quote a few weeks ago that said, “You only get 18 summers with your kids. Make.them count.” I plan on doing just that!
