For all you Lutherans out there...
THIS IS MOST CERTAINLY TRUE.
This is the decade where we live for naptimes and
if you can't respect the naptimes we probably don't need you in our life right now.
This is the decade where grandmas can be paid in snuggles and giggles.*
(*Not from their own offspring, but from the grandbabies.)
This is the decade where birthdays are a big deal.
This is the decade where memes like this hit a little too close to home at times.
The decade where you ride a camel if your kid asks you to.
...Or ride down a super giant slide, even if you really don't like heights.
The decade where running snap tests (or any chore) takes 100 times longer than it should because you have so many little helpers.
The decade where you are eternally stuck in a rocking chair with a nursing baby and random creepers feel the need to check on you periodically.
The decade where you blink and suddenly your kid can write letters all by himself.
The decade where you tell stories to your great grandma and she plays along like it's the best story in the history of the world.
This is the decade where you can sing Tanya Tucker lullabies to make your kiddos grin.
The decade where you can wear a straw hat after labor day, a t-shirt and shotgun your boots and no one asks you if you're from Oklahoma.
I think my friend was right. Life is such a blur right now that sometimes it does feel like one day we'll blink and a decade will have passed.
But what a hell of a decade this is.
