Six Years Ago Today

Tuesday, August 26, 2014







Today is a very special day my little Allday-Everyday and Tiger (aka M+L) are six years old! Luckily this year they are quite excited about it and have been asking me if they were 6 yet for last two months for entirely different reasons than last year. That makes it so much more fun and helps me not focus on my own "omg! i want you to stay little forever!!" feelings (i totally get this little girls sentiments). It is so wonderful watching these little guys grow together as twins and as individuals. The antics are nonstop and everyday they grow I get to be a part of all of that and that really makes me one of the luckily people in the world. But still, my baaaabies. Turning six this week, starting kindergarten next. The time really does go so fast when your days are filled with so much joy and happiness. It's almost entirely impossible to have a bad day around these two. And as a mom of a teenager I know, oh how I know, these little years don't last forever, these cuddles and I love you mama's every 5 minutes and the hilarious things that kids say and the unabashed "look what i can do's." Not to say that teenager don't come with their own sort of magic (you're still magical fisher!), but these years, these tiny years, oh they are just the best, it's like waking up and falling in love over and over everyday. And I owe so much of my joy, so many bouts of laughter and an immeasurable amount of feelings of love and gratitude to these two little guys right here.  So to celebrate we are continuing with our amusement park birthday celebration for a day of woozy tummies and cotton candy. Happy birthday to my Tiger and Allday-Everyday, my Milo and Luca, my M+L, my baby A and baby B.

  6. Gaaaah HAPPY BIRTHDAY M+L!! What little dudes they are turning into! You totally captured their wonderful little personalities in these photos. How could you not be at least a little sad to send them off to school full-time soon, knowing that all that free entertainment is going with them?? A very happy birthday to them!! xoxo

    1. it's true. i am sure i will be walking circles in my house for the first week or so. after that i'll probably be rushing out the door so i don't get there late (hopefully at least. my goal is to work while they are at school. cross your fingers i can time-manage myself!) xo

  8. say happy birthday to your guys. they are so adorable. I see my friends' kids growing up, and that's scary enough. I have no idea how it must feel for you as a mother... xo

    1. thanks petra. it's hard! it really is. but of course you also want them to grow and be independent and strong and see the world, all of those wonderful things. so it's pretty much an emotional tug of war at these times ;)
