baggage

Some things I can't do since having children:
* Watch any of the Law and Orders.
* Maintain a clean car.
* Listen to someone's "I pushed for 2 minutes" birth story without inwardly cringing.
* Go to sleep without kissing two sweaty foreheads.
We were looking through old pictures last night from before Claire was born and Nate commented that she's been around now longer than we were married without kids. I am always grateful that my five year plan was cut short. Sweaty foreheads and all.

I love thinking about things like how the little one have been around longer than we were married without them. I love to think about the fact that Luke doesn't remember a time when his sister wasn't around.

I especially love tucjing them in at night, especially when I do it again while they sleep!

TV is on the internet now! :) You can watch it instead of sleep. Hopefully sometime this year I'll get pregnant and in the future I will understand your point of view!

I'm so glad your five year plan was cut short too.
