Just us girls

Published September 28, 2013 by The Hip Grandmother

Spending precious time together

These are the special times I am going to remember. My daughter and I walking to Starbucks (across the street where we live) and getting a quick latte, window shopping at the many little stores at our convenience. Although we don’t walk arm in arm like we did when she was a child, chatting over our favorite lattes and having a few laughs was all I needed to have a wonderful day with her. Of course, we are avid people-watchers and this is a great time to practice doing so. As we walk to and fro to the many shops, she finds kid toys and wants to buy them for the little girl next door. We have a real good time together without thinking of our responsibilities of bills, house-cleaning and homework. I’m going to miss these moments with her.

A Mother’s Wish

Poor kid woke up this morning with a back ache..the kind that you get at the end of a long day. As a mother, I wish I could take it all away and carry her child for her but this is not possible given the income I have. It’s ok. I’ve done my time and now it’s her turn.

  • I love this! I hope everyone who reads it sits back with reflection. I think as mothers we tend to forget about making memories and cherishing the little things with our kids. I have gone over 1 1/2 yrs. without my babies and in that time I’ve had a lot of things to think about. Along with the pain of missing every holiday, birthday, and milestone…I have learned to never take anything for granted because you never know if that gift will be taken away from you. In a few more weeks I will have my kids back with me and the lesson I’ve learned is to make the most out of every opportunity.

    • That has got to be so hard! When she was living with my sister when she was in 3rd grade, it was HARD as hell. I had to get my life together and my sister wanted to help. I am forever indebted to my sister for that.

      The brighter side is that you will be able to have the birthdays, holidays and milestones with your babies. I love the gifts that come out of hardships. They make us stronger to push through and never take anything for granted. Those are things to be cherished with our little babies. 🙂
