Parenting After the Process.

I remember saying on more than a few occasions while we were waiting for the boys that I couldn't wait to actually parent them.
That I was so over the process, and just wanted to be their mom already.

And now
at that point.

A cookies and milk pit stop between bike rides.

Basketball with your brothers.

 A silent protest in the middle of the cul-de-sac when you have to share.

Ahhhh, it's parenting.
let me tell ya,
is so much more fun than the process.
This beats the heck out of paperwork any day.


  1. paperwork and waiting is 1000 times more painful, I agree!!!!

  2. Amen to that! And I'd really LOVE to be outside without snow and winter coats now.

  3. I think that is what gets us through all that paperwork!! Thank you for the sweet reminder of the main goal---parenting and all that comes with it!

  4. Ohh boy, the memories this brings up! Our first adoption was domestic so this international thing is a whole other beast to tame. The paperwork never seems to end...yet at the end somewhere is my Dalton!

    I'm glad I read this today, looking forward to getting to *this* point soon! Thanks for posting!

  5. Thx. I needed that reminder today...I am getting to parentandnot schuffeling papers and waiting. Gonna go put her in the front pack...

  6. Yes! Can't wait to the get to the parenting part and be done with the process as well! Hugs! So happy you're there! :)
