If only I had a life pause button I would freeze time right now.
My first born, Xander, your toddlerhood is over in the blink of an eye. Didn’t I just spend hours upon hours rocking you to sleep as a baby? You are now passionate about your crayons and chalk. Your steady hands, no longer scribbling but creating circles, people and letters. Your a crime fighter at work.A robot busting a move.Just where did time go?
Little redhead, Noah, it wasn’t very long ago that I was waiting in anticipation to meet you. Now your unsteady legs are ready to go. Your vocabulary is growing, you now can sign eat. As soon as I strap you into your car seat you demand “up”. You have the whole world to explore, no time for such nonsense. Do I really have to admit you are now a full fledged toddler?
If I had a life pause button I would click it right now,
capture the sweet moments shared between the two of you.
When I watch it unfold my eyes become wet.Brothers forever, never forget.
Since there is no life pause button I live in the now. With each sun rise, there’s more memories waiting to be discovered.
When I find myself daydreaming of what you both will become. A smile comes to my face as I picture the winning goal pounding into the net. The board breaking with a snap, as your leg hits it hard. The ball swishing into the net, your feet flying in the air. Dreaming is fun, but living in the moment with you both is more than I could ever want.
