this weekend. i went to wedding of some friends of mine. realized there hasn't been one wedding the husband and i have went to together since we have been married, except for the one he stood up in. he has always had something going on: work, army, mostly army. so i brought my other little man as my date. he was very well behaved. slept through everything. but i left early that night, because someone i knew he was going to get hungry and didn't like being in his carseat for over 3 hours. i wouldn't blame him.
so on the way home, i grabbed a couple video rentals. fed and changed him into his pj's. warmed up his bottle and grabbed an ice cold beverage from the fridge for me. sat on the couch and reflected just how much my life has changed in less than 5 years. i passed the local college on the way home and saw students walking out to the bars for the night. remembering all the good times i had then. reliving those moments made me wish i was in their shoes. but that wish was short lived. because i realized then just what i was holding in my hands wasn't an overly expensive paid drink, but instead a beautiful miracle that i still can't believe is really real. as much as those getting dressed up, staying out to until bar close, dancing till your feet hurt night sounds like fun. i wouldn't trade it for the world now. i'm one lucky lady to be made a momma and these saturday nights-in watching Disney movies with my pup and my little one both snoring fast asleep on the couch top any drunken-college party night.
