growing old

last night, while i was tickling travis so he wouldn't go to sleep, {i wasn't tired yet, so he shouldn't be either?} a thought plunked right into my head. now, my thoughts often plunk around but this particular one is a recurring plunker. so i thought i'd share. 
sometimes when i'm playing with travis, i get an image of the future. i can imagine him with no hair and me with  flabby boobs and us together. we're being silly, still. our kids are around us, and they all lovingly think we're the weirdest parents on earth. this recurring plunker is just about the long, happy life travis & i have ahead of us and the many moments we will create together.  i can't wait to love forever with him {smile}. 
and i am so grateful that my Heavenly Father has given me a way to do that.

i do the exact same thing! Tickle the hubs when he's trying to fall to sleep and I'm not tired yet. This scenario usually ends in one of two ways for me though. 1). He completely just ignores me so I get bored and roll over, or 2) he fights back and with him being much stronger than me I either end pushed out of the bed or crying with laughter.

:) Love this. Sometimes I have the opposite fear.. I'm afraid we're going to "grow up" so fast {ie have kids, get real jobs} and I'll miss these fun/easy newlywed times. Sometimes I get nostalgic for them already, even though I am still living them.
