It won't be like this for long....

After the exhaustion of Christmas, traveling, and a sick baby have worn off I try to remind myself that it will not be like this for long. The boys will be grown one day and I will be longing for this time again. But right now some days I just need ALOT of coffee and patience to get me though the day. But I would not change a thing! Except maybe a little more sleep or a couple of more hours in the day:)

I heard this song by Darius Rucker a couple of weeks ago and it keeping going through my head as a reminder that it will not be like this for long. Now, not all of the words apply to me but in general it is a reminder that time goes by so quickly! Here are the lyrics.

He didn't have to wake up
He'd been up all nite
Lay'n there in bed listen'n
To his new born baby cry
He makes a pot of coffee
He splashes water on his face
His wife gives him a kiss and says It gonna be OK


It wont be like this for long, One day soon we'll look back laugh'n
At the week we brought her home
This phase is gonna fly by, So baby just hold on
It wont be like this for long



Four years later bout four thirty
She's crawling in there bed
And when he drops her off at preschool
She's clinging to his leg
The teacher peels her off of him
He says what can I do
She says now don't you worry
This will only last a week or two


It wont be like this for long
One day soon we'll drop her off
And she wont even know your gone
This phase is gonna fly by If you can just hold on
It wont be like this for long

One day soon she'll be a teenager
And at times you'll think she hates him
Then he'll walk her down the isle
And he'll raise her vale
But right now she up and cry'n
And the truth is that he don't mind
As he kisses her good night
And she says her prayers
He lays down there beside her
Till her eyes are finally closed
And just watch'n her it breaks his heart
Cause he already knows

It wont be like this for long

One day soon that little girl is gonna be
All grown up and gone
Yeah this phase is gonna fly by He's try'n to hold on
It wont be like this for long
It wont be like this for long

This is not the song for an emotionally charged pregnant woman to hear. I'm catching the water from eyes! But, I too have to remind myself that this is just a season and soon, I'll be wishing she wanted me to pick her up when she gets hurt. I'm teriffied of juggling life with 2; any advice?
