    As much as I don't wish for time to go ANY faster, I do look forward to:

    Taking the boys out for a surf

    Our first family ski holiday

    A trip to Disneyland

    Pretty much any holiday really - be it camping, glamping, family resort either in oz or overseas

    Any trips taken with cousins

    Every Christmas we spend with the cousins, big loud and crazy as it is!

    What a great thread btw

    Definitely reading Harry Potter series to my girls! They are only 3 and 3 months so we have a while there.

    More travel.

    Camping - was a disaster at age 1 and 2!

    Special night out with my big girl

    Hahaha and here I look forward to seeing DS's face the moment he goes to sleep, and when he waves goodbye at school in the morning.
    I feel like this sums up two kinds of parents...

    Default What do you look forward to?

    When DS can finally talk (he's 2 next month and still doesn't really say anything) so he can tell me if he's hungry, tired, thirsty, bored or just needs a hug.

    When DD doesn't cry so much and can express her feelings with her words

    (Can you spot a theme - I HATE all the crying!)

    When I can take them both to watch AFL

    Taking them to the UK to meet their extended family

    Shopping with DD and getting our nails done together

    Watching them both play sport / perform in concerts / debating competitions what ever extra curricular activity they're interested in

    Playing board games as a family

    When they can get up in the morning and not wake us up

    When they can dress themselves, come and say goodnight to us and go to sleep without all the songs and books and 'routines'

    When DD will walk everywhere and not complain she's tire or her legs hurt.

    When DS is in a big boy bed and out of nappies

    When they're both in school

    When I can volunteer in the school canteen and go on their excursions.

    When they have sleep overs at their family's houses.

    When they move out of home

    Having conversations with DS.

    When he says I love you for the first time.

    Being able to go out for dinner as a family (actually, just being able to go out to dinner would be nice. I'm the only one who can get him to bed).

    A family holiday (especially if we don't have to co-sleep with DS, and DS actually sleeps).

    Another for reading Harry Potter together.

    DS reliably sleeping through most nights. And waking up after 6 most mornings.

    Seeing DS meet his baby brother or sister and how they grow up together (also really worried about how this will go).

    So many others that I can't even think of right now!
    Oh, and the little things I look forward to daily: his excitement, massive grins and belly laughs when he finds something funny, the excitement when he sees a food he really enjoys (or thinks he will enjoy), our cuddles before bed and after he wakes, when he learns something new (especially if he's proud of himself).

    Seeing the first blossoms on the trees that were just dry looking twigs every year, means winter is nearly over
