Appreciating it all

Lately I have been almost in a panic about how to appreciate my kids while I have them at home. I think part of that comes from the infertility and a lot of it right now is coming from Brighton starting the 1st grade. All the sudden she is just gone all day, & I have no idea what she is doing, if she is eating, who she is playing with, if she is happy or sad. Letting her go has been harder than I thought it would be. I always hear people say they wish they would have "appreciated it more" when their kids are little, but how do you do that? I think part of it is playing with them so I have the memories when they grow up. But the idea of just appreciating it more is a little abstract to me. I use to be a lot better at blogging when I only had Brighton but its so hard for me to find time to sit down at the computer and type, especially with Aaron working at home on our only computer. Plus, getting pictures on the computer to use for blogging takes forever. Last night as I was driving home from Idaho Falls it hit me almost like inspiration, that I should check to see if there is an app for blogger, and there is! I just downloaded it onto my tablet and now my goal is to blog a lot more so that I can appreciate the little things that happen in my day. I think it will be easier just taking pictures with my tablet and blogging  right from my tablet. Even if there are more typos because I'm using the speaking feature, instead of typing. Plus there will be a lot fewer ...'s like I use all the time when I type. An old habit from my days off television news writing. My blog probably won't be as entertaining as it once was but it's something I feel like I need to do. We'll see if I stick to this new resolution!

Also I will continue to post the things that are real in my life like Deacon playing the Wii and the mess in the background. and my constant view of Piper reaching up to me, wanting to be held all the time. Its kinda annoying but maybe thesse are the things i need to appreciate.
