They are older now.
Another dreaded (yet celebrated) milestone....
Today - my girls are officially older than their big brother.
Definitely a bittersweet day.
I'm just thankful that they still don't understand how important yesterday and today are/were.
When I got home from work yesterday, I was a nervous wreck waiting on them to get home from daycare (Kyle picks them up). The second they pulled up, I felt like a ton had been lifted off of my shoulders. I could see Sienna's little face light up and she started waving when she saw me.
I stood on the porch and hugged them as tight as I could.
They were home. Safe and sound. And alive.
I silently shed some tears and they were none the wiser.
I chose not to work out last night and just soaked up the extra cuddles from my girls. They sat in my lap for a long time just watching their shows on tv. I debated letting them stay up late, but decided against it because I knew I would pay for their lack of sleep.
They went to bed and I hugged them a little tighter for a little bit longer than usual.
We survived 5 years, 2 months and 15 days.
