Brian and I also find ourselves asking "did we ever get to really enjoy it with the girls". I first I felt guilt for even thinking it. Of course I adored the girls so much but I think I spent so much time worrying and stressing that I barely ever sat down and just enjoyed them being in certain stages.
The more I sit back and think about it the more I get angry. Angry that RS took that from us. Angry that RS made us less present parents for our girls. Angry that I could have been more fun, engaging, energetic and creative had I not been worried about all the other crap.
Fortunately I am not one to dwell too much on the past. And all I can do at this point is never let RS steal another minute from my daughter or my family.
