one day. a year and a half ago.

I came across this video today while digging for something else and just had to post it again! It makes me SMILE and makes me SAD all at the same time. Oh how fast those hard hard days of three ages three and under went. And how LONG they felt back then.

Now that I’m working out of the house everyday I’m SO thankful for those years I could stay home full time. And yes we were broke. And yes it was hard a lot of the time. And yes I wanted OUT so many days.

But looking back it flew by. And I miss it so so much. So so much. I’d go back in a heart beat just to hold all three of those babies again. When they all fit in my lap. And wanted to be in my lap. I’m going to make another video this weekend. Once a year I want to document our day in video. This video just speaks volumes to my life back then. And I held nothing back! HA! Ordering Mnt Dew, changing diapers, two year old tantrums and everything!

So in this video Grayson is 10 months old, Parker is two and Bailey is three. Holy cow.

Isn’t it funny how much perspective plays a part in our memories? Now that I’m past that time I look back so fondly. So much that I miss it with an ache in my arms from missing those babies. But back then all I wanted was OUT most days.

Anyway, if you know me or my kids I hope this makes you smile!

  1. I have tears in my eyes! I don’t know you or your kids but I love that you share your life with us. You really have some of the sweetest kids out there Jodie! Happy Tuesday!

  2. This did make me smile :) My kids have the same pajamas!! Thanks for sharing – how quickly I forget that these days won’t last forever :)

  3. I had to fight back tears the whole time…probably because I feel the exact same way about my kids. What I wouldn’t give to go back to our 900 square foot apartment when I was a SAHM to a newborn, a 2 year old, and a 5 year old. Thanks for sharing this!
