Yes, it happened. I went from OMG I’m pregnant to I’m having my 5th baby to I love this baby more than a million chocolate croissants to how is my baby already turning one?!
For some reason, since the invention of parents, we have all been amazed by the movement of time. Scientists claim that time is still moving at the same speed that it did the summer I was 8, had chicken pox and had to sit on a tire swing in the shade with nothing to do. But I swear, it moves much more quickly now that I don’t have chicken pox. And also, now that I have these children who refuse to stop growing.
On Mother’s Day morning, nearly 4-year-old Chase walked into my room with a CD player, plugged it in, said to me, “This is for you on Mother’s Day,” and pushed play.
And “How Sweet It Is To Be Loved By You” started playing. Rick said Chase came up with the idea all on his own. I mean, could a mother hope for anything more?
Even though I suspect that motherhood might be an addiction, this is my last baby.
But then it suddenly occurred to me, hey, maybe if we keep treating Cash like a baby, he will STAY a baby. So the twins and I gave it a try….
Do you think his big brother pushed over that crib? Hmm….
I would love for Cash to see this video when he’s a little older. But because there’s a good chance I’ll drop my iPhone into the toilet while trying to help 5 kids in the bathroom before then, I’m going to upload it to LegacyBuilder.
A few weeks ago I told you about LegacyBuilder, a website where you can easily organize your photos, videos and the story of your life. I can put this video in the LegacyBuilder vault for Cash to open at a later date. So for example, on his 10 birthday, I’ll get an email that it’s time to show Cash this clip and he’ll finally know that his mom put him in a little mini crib and tried to convince him to stay an infant. He’ll probably roll his eyes and pity me.

Oh and if you think that now that my babies are growing, I’m going to run out and get a puppy, you are the crazy one.
