3 Years,,,

Today marks the 3rd anniversary of our lives being changed irrevokably (is that how you spell that? I don't think so!) 3rd anniversary of what you ask? Well 3 years ago today I was staring at a home pregnancy test telling me that I was pregnant. I remember just staring at it and laughing. We had hoped it would happen quickly, but had no idea it would only take 2 months. I was home that day because I was off work and I went out and bought some baby undershirts and the "What to Expect When You're Expecting" book. I didn't tell anyone and waited for Jason to come home. I left the test with the baby undershirts on the computer desk and when he came home I just let him find it himself. It's hard to believe we've been in "kidland" longer now than we were ever married w/o kids. But then, it's hard to remember our life without kids. I can't imagine what I did with all that time. I don't know how to be unproductive anymore. I was home sick on Friday and without the kids. And while I did sleep until 10am, I still managed to do all of the kid's laundry and clean up the house. I just don't know how to lay around anymore.

As I sit here watching Caroline dance and jump around and have Bryce grabbing at my hands as I type, I am reminded how lucky I am to have such beautiful and healthy children. I feel truly blessed and hope that we will always be this happy. Happy 3 Years!
