Right Side Up

We're watching our twin nephews this weekend. It has been a wonderful time full of snuggles and superhero games.

It feels good to have noise and activity in our house. It feels good to wake up early on the weekend to feed a hungry and delirious kid.

I had plans this morning to meet Josey at Park Meadows for shopping, lunch and girl time. Jeremy stayed with the twins so I could go. Somehow during our shopping conversation it came up about how having kids means years of early mornings, early bedtimes, noise and mess. And I told her that I miss all of it. Having nothing but time on my hands now, it doesn't feel good, like I'm free, like it did before I had a child. It just feels like something is perpetually missing from my life. Having a child changes you forever.

I'm typing this on my phone Saturday afternoon while the twins are napping on the couch next to me. And life feels a little more right than it has in a long time.
