Fall Back

Pretty soon we get to put our clocks back. I remember when I thought this was the BEST thing. Now I just realized that what it means for my family is that Miles will wake up really early, according to the clock. Which will change his waking up time in general and slowly we will be having longer days. We'll happily put our clocks back one hour the night before and when we roll over and look at the clock when Miles starts yelling "MOMMY!!!", it will say 6am rather than 7am. Am I figuring this right? I get confused easily. I think I might be right. Oh well, such is the life of the non-sleeping family with little iddy bitty ones. I'm getting more tired just thinking about it so I think I'll stop now.
Just this afternoon my neighbor (mother of four that she home-schools), said "don't wish away these years, before you know it they're teenagers." I hear this a lot these days. Ever since I had Miles actually. I'm thankful that people say it so often because it's pretty easy some days to want things to speed up. You want them to be out of diapers, out of their crib, out of the "terrible twos" (they aren't that terrible if you ask me), out of the "why mommy?" stage, etc. I guess moms feel this way because it simply can be very hard. And at the same time, I just can't get enough of these two boys. I try to snuggle Miles all the time, but he's much too busy for me most of the time. I can't stop myself from rubbing noses with Asher even though my hair always falls in his face and makes him have to blink. I could just eat em up, the both of them. Miles is teaching me how time flies. He's a little man that guy.
So I guess even though I don't want to "fall back" this year, in no time at all, I'm going to be wanting to very badly. When these boys are bigger I'm going to be wishing that it was "fall back" time every day so I can get just a little of this time to live again.
It's simply true what they say: They're only young once. And there is only one Miles and only one Asher. I don't want to miss a thing.

Bravo! I love what you wrote!
I also have this thing with time change, but more so in the spring. For a whole week after "springing forward" I say, Gee Wiz, even though my clock says it's 5:45am, really it's 4:45am and that is not a fair time to get up from ones sleep! UGH!
