Some day…

Years ago I did a post titled something about Some days, you can find it here.  Looking back on this post, I am glad I have those moments captured here.  I haven’t written in this space in a couple weeks.  I haven’t felt it when I have actually had the time.  It isn’t to say that I haven’t wanted to write, it just happens while I am driving in the car or when I am drifting off to sleep.  I sometimes draw a blank when I sit down.

But moments are passing me by and I want to remember those some days, because it is the everyday moments that matter the most.

A couple weeks ago we had just dropped the kids off at school, as we were driving back Maddy said “Those cars are loosing air.”  I asked her why she thought this.  She said “I can see the air coming out the back of them.”  What she was seeing was the exhaust coming out of the back, because it was so cold out.  I explained to her what it really was, but now when I see  the exhaust from  cars, I think of this and smile.

Some day Maddy won’t say these sweet things because she will have the knowledge of what things are.  It is my job to teach her this knowledge.  I love this part of the job, her insights are what make her and all children unique.

A few nights ago I was laying in bed with Hayden and he was talking about his loose tooth.  I said maybe it will come out soon and the tooth fairy will come.  He said “I know the tooth fairy isn’t real.”  Yes I know he is old to still believe.  Only I knew he hasn’t really believed for quite a long time.  We got talking and it turns out the only reason he hasn’t really asked about all of this is because he didn’t want it to stop.   He said the big guy was what he wasn’t completely sure about.  I shared with him that I still believe about the magic of Christmas.  It was a sweet conversation we had, and in the end he was completely ok with it all. Unlike me when I found out, I (cough), maybe balled my eyes out.

That some day of Hayden believing has come and gone now.   I am glad he had one more truly magical Christmas eve night and morning.  I wonder when Maddy will stop, I hope that some day isn’t soon.

Some day I know Maddy will not need me to put her to bed, but right now I am still her world, she demands that it be me most nights.  I try to remember this will stop with no warning…some day.

Some day Hayden won’t run up to me after his music concert and give me a big hug, I can wait for that day.  I can hope it never comes, but I know it will.

There are a list of  some days I know I want to share but this is what I can remember today.

What “some day” will you remember from today?

    Someday I will remember the way my children played under my feet and how it sometimes drove me nuts but I know someday I will miss it oh so much…when they are too busy or yearning for their own quiet space.
