If you're a parent you know this all too well.
On Saturday it was Baby Girl's birthday. She turned 5. Yeah, 5!!
That's my last baby.
As we were spending time at the beach I watched her and her siblings playing and I noticed one thing - time has passed so quickly and I was wondering where it went.
My kids are no longer tiny little creatures with indecipherable language (well they are to those who don't know them but I understand them) - they are individuals with thriving personalities all their own.
From the quiet child who likes to listen to the wind blow, to the child who can discuss the origins of the dinosaurs and their corresponding historical periods.
They are all so different and grown that I wonder how I have missed it. They are in front of me but yet it happened as if it were a flash of light.
And before I know it they will be older, taller (even though 3 of them are getting awfully close to my own height), smarter, funnier, and just plain awesome.
I can't wait! But then again, I can.
I think there is a country song that says "Let them be little" Yeah, I agree with that!
Oh and if I read my email right, tomorrow the 28th is my SITS day!! To my new and not so new readers...welcome!! I'm glad you stopped by. Here, have a cookie!
