I have been spending quite a bit of time lately reflecting on life. My life to be specific.
I remember before Sugar Daddy and I had kids (he was Sugar Hubby then... ;o) and we would talk about how life would change once we had a baby, and in fact we put off having a baby for a few years because we were anticipating that change and not totally sure if we were ready for it. We acknowledged that the sleeping in till noon on Saturdays would no longer happen, we would have a lot less money and we even figured that things like sex would become much less frequent. But really WE HAD NO CLUE how things would change. I have to think that if we had known, we would still be childless. Now don't get me wrong... I don't regret for a second having our kids. They are amazing little people that are truly the light of our lives. Its just that when I look back on the couple that we were, I don't think we would have been brave enough to sign up if we really knew how parenthood would change things... change us. Thank God we didn't know! =)
Now that we are parents... parents to two AMAZING 4 year olds that I would gladly give up every comfort and bit of spare change for just to ensure their happiness... I have found myself reflecting. On where we have been.... where we are... and where we are going. I have to say, all in all, we are doing pretty good.
I think we are entering that time in life when you just sort of coast.... we have worked hard to build what we have... and there have been additions to the building that we never anticipated (like twins and type 1 diabetes), but I am ready for these "coasting" years.
It will be interesting to look back in several years and see if we are indeed just coasting, or if there are new and unexpected "additions" (and NO I am NOT talking about more kiddos) to come.... I guess time will tell. =)
