Something Good - Sleepovers!

Last Friday night, Camdyn had a friend sleepover for the 2nd time.  They swam, they played, and at eleven o'clock I had to convince them to unwind and settle down for bedtime.  We pulled out the bed that was hiding in the couch, and made them a cozy and fun place to sleep.  We brought the nightlight down from Camdyn's bedroom and we tucked them in.  When I left them for the night they were huddled around the night light singing the Tangled theme song, like the light was a lantern.  (CUTE).

They woke with the sun and immediately started playing while Tastefully Simple Cinnamon Muffin Melts baked in my oven. 


As she grows and her baby years tumble further down memory lane; with every tooth lost (we are currently at 4) and every vivid and accurate memory she shares with me; I become even more keenly aware - raising children is a dynamic and evolving experience; with every milestone I am sad to see pass, there is a new one emerging from around the bend. 

It simply gets better all the time.

I love that Cam is all about the sleepovers already. I don't remember doing it so young when we were kiddos...but it is great. It keeps them entertained and gives the parents a break. Parenting is ever changing and I look forward to seeing that is ahead :)

Yay for sleepovers! Rylie can't wait to have her friend Angelica spend the night again. I have to admit...it is quite fun to hear all of the giggles.

I love the red and white dress! Where did you get it?

I promise I will get over here and catch up soon. Thanks for linking up with us today!

I once heard a quote that went something like "Don't hold onto the past so tight that your arms are too full to embrace the present." Or something like that. lol It has changed my life!! I have a problem with being sentimental with my kids and looking back I tend to go into panick mode. Like their little lives are slipping through my fingers and there is nothing I can do to stop it. But this quote reminding me that the best way I can hold onto the past is by being fully present in the here and now.
