Big one year olds...
THREE?? Really?? I never thought this day would come. Literally, there was a time when I actually thought there was a possibility I would not see this day. I think I will probably feel this way every single year. This day, seven Sallingers went to the water park to celebrate a couple big birthdays. We had no babies to manage, no swim diapers to change, no sippy cups to keep track of. We rode the slides, lounged on the edge of the pool, and laughed a lot.
Parents got crabby, kids got tired and whined, naps were skipped and baths will wait until tomorrow. It feels totally normal and completely surreal at the same time. Three years ago, I could not have come close to imagining what this would feel like. The dreams I once had for this family have not been lost. Deeply shaken maybe, but not lost.
Praise God for getting us here. Happy Birthday, Rowen! Happy Birthday, Maeson! I love you both so much, I can't stand it.
Choosing to love,
