... if i could write for you a symphony ...

does anyone else feel this incredible spinning of time?

the overwhelming sense that a day is just not long enough and that things are going to change much to quickly for me to adjust properly...

that's how i feel right now. maybe it's because i spent so much of last spring summer and fall outside and exploring with the kids that since we are cooped up most days of winter, it feels unbearable. maybe it's that lydia starts kindy in a few months and while it will only be for a few hours a day it feels like my whole life is changing. it's bigger than kindy, it's the beginning of her school career, the beginning of her having less time to play with me... and in turn i am reminded that the other two babies are just a skip behind her.

Anyway, I have been making a sincere effort to enjoy winter as much as possible. In the month of january i have taken them to 3 different parks, took them on 2 around town walks, i have taken them to walmart and kmart just to look at the toy isles numerous times and we have went sledding about 4 times. not too bad, right, that's better than last year.
I want these last few months before school starts to really be great for lydia, so that she knows that i love having fun with her... that i like exploring and learning with her... that i do miss her when she's away.

I don't know... just, try to enjoy everything you can...xox
