They say when you have a baby to enjoy it because time flies by so fast. I understood this when Brennan was a newborn but there was a part of me that was so ready for him to grow up. First, I just wanted to reach 12 weeks with him. My mom told me that when I was a baby she remembers everything getting better at around 12 weeks. Then Brennan reached 12 weeks and things were better. After we passed that then I wanted him to get to six months. I just kept thinking it had to get better if only he were older.
I guess what I am trying to say is that life really will not be like this for long and that goes for whatever stage of life you’re in. Whether it’s being a teen in high school, being a college student, newlywed, new mother or a mother of older children – it will not be like this for long. Now I wish I could go back to the beginning part of Brennan’s life and redo it.
