There are times
I wish they knew me in my younger life
also
I wish I knew them when I was a child.

Ah, how marvelous that would be.
I always wish that my children could see themselves as babies.

I wonder if my children and I would have been friends. I was kind of a handful. :)

And I wish I could have retained my child-self. I think I would have been a lot better off.

What a lovely, lovely thought which has never occurred to me before.

Boy, this says a lot. It reminds me of how both my kids, when they were tiny, both had the idea that once we were all babies together.

And it makes me think of what snapped me out of my postpartum funk when I had my first baby. When Laura was a out three weeks old, I was so exhausted and moody, and then one day I thought, "This is someone I'm going to love the whole rest of my life, and here is the very beginning of her." It sounds so simple but it hadn't dawned on me that way. And from that day, I began to take more pleasure in taking care of her and the fog began to lift.

What a sweet sentiment, and a wonderful picture to go along with it.
