Lately, its been fun to just sit and watch Dylan and Avery play together. They play so well together MOST of the time. A couple days ago, they were looking at pictures on my phone and I started snapping pictures of them with the camera. All snuggled up together.
And then I felt my chest getting all tight and tears welling up as I thought of how close my little brother and I were at this age. I started picturing Dyls and Avos many many years from now and thinking of all the things I hope for them for the future. Apparently I was having an emotional morning. It happens.
I want them to always know each other. I want them to know each other’s families. I want them to see each other often.
I want them to laugh together always and get along well.
I want them to look back at their childhood and remember all the good times and forget about the bad (cuz there WILL be bad, like it or not).
I want them to remember all the love they feel in our house and I want them to pass it along to their families.
I want them to remember to call their mother because she’ll be missing them so much.
I want them to have big dreams and keep striving to reach them, even when they are in their 30’s (just like their dad!).
I want them to respect each other.
Accept each other’s differences.
And most of all, love each other always.
Lots of sappiness here, I know! : ) I just really want them to be as happy as they are today, always. That’s my dream for them.
