I’ve just scrolled threw all of the videos I’ve taken this past year with my son. Trying to soak up every sent and smell from him as long as possible. Kissing him as soon as the opportunity arrives because I know that I have to go back to work, leaving him for X amount of hours every day. I don’t even want to think about it but I know that is the reality. I wish I could rewind and do it all over again. The light night feeds, the first smile and laugh, and even all the diaper changes. I wouldn’t mind it at all if it meant I could spend it with my first born child again.
“The future frightens only those who prefer living in the past”.
The last two years where the best years in my life, that is why the next two years frighten me. They will be tough and there will be sweat, tears and hard times. But they also excite me because there will be happiness and accomplishments exceeding my expectations.
