“Being a parent is so stressful at times.
This photo was taken of them on the dining room table.
You read that right.
On the table.
I will take them all, to not have to feel the pain of losing you.
Today I read of the devastating loss a family is feeling after losing their young child to cancer.
So I count myself blessed.
I am grateful for the good moments and the hard ones.
I am grateful for all the moments I get to share with you two.
I love you two always, and more than you’ll ever know.
Crying for moms and dads who would give anything for one more moment, even one more tantrum, with their babies.
I count myself blessed for it all. The good and the bad. The easy and the hard.
