Things I miss from days of yesterday

Thinking back fondly to when the kids were younger, a few wonderful and funny memories come to mind:

  • Reading/singing Baby Beluga (by Raffi) 12 times each night “again mommy, again…”
  • Dressing my kids in matching outfits
  • Funny word pronunciations: pasghetti for spaghetti, macouver for converter, tumma tumma for “w” (honestly!), mema and bepa for grandma and grandpa
  • Embarrassing moments “mommy, why does that man have a ponytail…only girls have ponytails”  – standing behind a rough looking biker in a grocery store check-out line
  • Playing Barbies for hours and hours
  • Singing Disney songs while they take a bubble bath
  • Themed birthday parties
  • Putting smiley face notes in their lunch bags
  • Tucking them in at night and “blowing out the light”

Those were the days!
