Change is scary. Then again, change is good. In the past recent months, we have moved to a new place and we are still getting used to it. Although we do miss our old neighborhood,Our new one is jammed packed with tiny families like ours. Soon Lucas will begin Prek, which will bring more change onto our routines. I want to add that I am a self- proclaimed change queen. I attended over 10 schools in my lifetime. Considering most kids go to 4 or 5 schools. That a whole bunch of new.
This past month Lucas also turned 4. He is considered a child now (sadly to my mama heart) . I’m not sure who made these guidelines up ; Baby, toddler, child, preteen…ect. They are kinda silly, and of course he is still my baby, but there is no denying he is loosing all of the things that made him my once chubby baby. For one, He has really embraced his role of big brother.He adores that girl to death. He is taller and much faster, super strong. Also that brain is just insanely filled with his own ideas. He has opinions and judgments on activities. Its just a crazy explosion of learning. I know he is resilient, and he will embrace his new environment like a champ.
I can’t say kids are immune to change, but I do know that they are probably better at adjusting than us adults.
E A R L Y L I G H T / APRIL 2015
My thoughts are heavy on my mind right before bed.
These days I fall asleep at 12PM and wake up whenever these two decide to take on the day.
That is what early light is about.
Those just waking moments, where you can still hear the birds.
The stillness that can be beautiful and found everywhere you see.
To my little boy
Your heart is so big.
and right now, you are having a tough time with all of the feelings and emotions inside it.
This month you are learning about sharing more.
the concept is completely lost on you, most of the time
then, I see your sweetness shine in
wanting nothing but to please that little girl.
Thank you for your patience, as mommy is mainly occupied with her.
To my little girl
You, my dear.
Are something to be admired.
Just two months ago was your 1st birthday and already,
you are doing the stuff toddlers dream of.
Your wit and laughter is so incredibly awesome.
I can’t wait for you to soak in the beauty of summer as a walking big girl.
