Our kids have just 4 days of school left, I can hardly believe how quickly this year has gone by! It’s bittersweet because my children are growing up. Mr.T. will be a senior come fall and well on his way to living his own life. Pie will be starting the tumultuous middle school years when she enters sixth grade.
Where did my babies go? Somehow they grew up when I wasn’t looking. I think that must happen to most parents which leaves them stadning there with a dumbfounded look on their face wondering who these big people are.
One minute you’re blowing bubbles in the yard and making spongebob out of play dough. The next you’re trying not to grab the wheel as your teenager learns how to drive and biting your lip when your tween wants to go roller skating with a friend.
It’s too fast. They don’t understand that when I look at their faces, this is what I still see.
Even my Ginger Dog is growing old, she’s NINE years old now! What a wonderful girl she’s been, I hope we have many more years with her.
Where’s that pause button when you really need it?
