One of my repeated memories of my childhood was playing house, pretending to be all grown up and having a cute little house, a handsome husband and three babies. I changed diapers, fed dolls, sang them to sleep... that was about everything and anything I played.
Life gave me the chance to play house, but this time for real... and wow is it magical... literally I don´t think I have ever been as happy as the day each one of my girls was born. I have always cried, and cried, and cried the second that little tiny baby is born, when love invades me to never ever leave me...
I have been absolutely head over heels in love with my life with Ale and Emi! I have really lived and cherished every single minute of their lives, I have never taken for granted a kiss, a hug, a tear, a nap on my shoulder, a smile.... and I think it is not only because of the infatuation I feel for them but for the sense of wanting to really give it all since it was only two girls that I was going to have, and because I can see how life is passing by so fast, unstoppable. But because what we really can count in life is to expect the unexpected.... and to be prepared to be surprised, I now have the chance to relive it all again!!!!
Now in my 40s I have my Ari.... my own so very small, sweet, happy, wonderful baby girl! I think she has been the one with whom I have cried the most once I heard her cry at the hospital. Oh my.... she was real.... I really couldn´t believe it! I had a baby again to love, to cherish, to hold, to kiss, to spoil! could I be any luckier?!?! I get to do it all over again! Wow!!!!!! I thank God every single day for giving me the chance to do it all over again, for giving me this baby, for Ale and Emi, for giving me so much love.
Yesterday I went to enroll Ari at the day care / preschool that Ale and Emi went to. A place I enjoyed so much and of which I have so many great and happy memories. I remember the last day there as if it were yesterday, how I cried at the realization that life was going on, and that my babies were not babies anymore, I even remember the songs I listened to in the car while driving there to get them that last day of school 10 years ago. And then, because life of so absolutely perfect... I was there with Ari! Everything was the same, it looked the same, it smelled the same, it sounded the same... I felt the same! It was like when you have this great dream and you get up and you want to fall sleep again to keep dreaming.... the difference is you can never do that, but this time... while awake.... I am doing it! Can you believe it?!?
Here are the pictures of Ale and Emi that very first day of school, and Ari not yet on that first day but almost there!
