I enjoy watching "Jon and Kate Plus Eight" on cable.
Kate Gosselin has got to be one of the more organized mommies that I have ever seen in my life. And raising 8 kids to be as well behaved as they can be, is an amazing act, in my opinion. That woman deserves an award for the work that she does. (but I'm sure the financial paybacks are worth it after all that work. =))
Tonight's episode is all about the kids growing up too quickly and how she is grasping at their short lived innocence.
And I thought how apt it was.
My boys are going to be 4 and 3 this year.
They have lil minds of their own. And lil individual interests. Plus both of they are independent lil creatures who are pretty confident in telling you their likes and what not.
Some days, they would come out with crazy ideas that drive you up the wall. Some days they are as endearing as a lil munchkin. But more often than not, they like to come and have a lil cuddle from time to time during the day.
I don't know when, or whether, Darien and I will have another child.
So for now, we just have to enjoy the lil antics and joy that these two lil 'uns bring. Because before you know it, they'll be finding their own partners and starting a new life on their own. =)
Because you only have one chance to enjoy your children's childhood and I am savoring every minute of it.
